Journey to Provident Metals to explore Columbian Exposition Silver Half Dollars. These brilliant uncirculated coins were manufactured by the Bureau of the Mint and are composed of 90 percent silver.
Now you can place a piece of history in your portfolio with America’s first commemorative coin — and the first half dollar to feature a historical figure.
Christopher Columbus graces the obverse, along with the inscriptions UNITED STATES OF AMERICA and COLUMBIAN HALF DOLLAR.
The Santa Maria — the largest ship used by Columbus — is featured on the reverse, placed above two hemispheres and the year 1492 (when Columbus sailed the ocean blue). WORLD’S COLUMBIAN EXPOSITION, the date and CHICAGO are inscribed.
The obverse and reverse designs were concepted by Olin Levi Warner, but Charles E. Barber modified them to complete the artwork.
Columbian Exposition Silver Dollars were created to raise money for the World’s Columbian Exposition in 1893. Dates on all coins will be either 1892 or 1893.

" Years ago my Dad gave me one of these halves; it was almost black from tarnish. I cleaned it up (I know, I know), put it in a bezel and gave it to my now ex. Gone forever, as they say. Here's my chance to get a replacement plus one for my sister and a few savers. It's a beautiful coin, very elegant. Can't wait for the offer. Thanks Provident!"
