The Oregon Trail Commemorative half dollar was approved by Congress at the incessant urging of the Old Pioneer Ezra Meeker. Meeker had orginally traversed the Oregon Trail in 1850 in an oxen cart with his wife and baby. The coins were originally minted in 1926 and were minted until 1939. It is one of the most beautiful American coins ever designed. It was designed by James Earle Fraser and his wife Laura Gardin Fraser - the only coin they ever designed together. Light original golden toning over this beautiful coin!
