Some say our past is carved in stone. Commemorate the history of the United States with the Stone Mountain Memorial Half Dollar in Brilliant Uncirculated condition, available for purchase through Provident Metals’ online system.
These coins are composed of 90% silver with a copper core. They were minted to raise money for the Stone Mountain Memorial in Georgia.
The obverse shows a Confederate Generals Robert E. Lee and Stonewall Jackson conversing while on horseback. The top rim reads IN GOD WE TRUST, with 13 stars. The name STONE MOUNTAIN is inscribed to the bottom-left, along with the year 1925.
The reverse features an eagle perched on the mountain’s rocky cliff, its wings spread for flight. The inscription reads MEMORIAL TO THE VALOR OF THE SOLDIER OF THE SOUTH is inscribed to the left. The rim reads UNITED STATES OF AMERICA and E PLURIBUS UNUM, as well as LIBERTY and HALF DOLLAR. A field of stars decorates the background.
The memorial at Stone Mountain features a bas-relief carving of Confederate President Jefferson Davis and Generals Lee and Jackson, along with their horses, Blackjack, Traveller, and Little Sorrel. It is the largest bas-relief sculpture in the world.
Though the memorial shows all three men, the coin was only allowed to show the military leaders. In order to convince Northern legislators to allow the coin’s production, it was issued in honor of recently deceased President Warren G. Harding. Before the coin was released, President Calvin Coolidge ordered all references to Harding removed, resulting in the coin’s final design.
Though our past may be carved in stone, our future is yet unwritten. Design your future with the BU 1925 Stone Mountain Memorial Half Dollar, available today from Provident Metals.
