Modern Commemorative 90% Silver Half Dollars
Celebrate American Triumphs with Modern Commemorative Half Dollars
United States Commemorative Coins made their historic debut with the issue of 1892 Columbian Exposition Silver Half Dollars, celebrating the 400th anniversary of Columbus’ momentous voyage to the Americas. The US Mint issued Early Commemoratives for more than 60 years, and after a three-decade hiatus, the Mint created the Modern Commemoratives Program, initiated by the 1982 George Washington Half Dollar.
Simple and affordable to collect, Provident Metals carries a multitude of Modern Half Dollar Commemorative Coins, historically issued to stimulate revenue for particular programs without raising taxes.
In the past 30 years, the US Mint has issued at least two new commemorative designs each year (only 18 of them being Half Dollars), and most Modern Commemoratives are made of a silver-clad composition. Since the inception of the modern coin program, Half Dollar Commemoratives have been issued to celebrate countless American triumphs:
The First Flight Centennial, the Olympic Games, the Capitol Visitor Center, the Bald Eagle, Christopher Columbus’ voyage to the Americas, Civil War Battlefields, the Bicentennial of Congress, WWII, Mount Rushmore’s Golden Anniversary, the Bill of Rights, the United States Army, the World Cup and more.
