The George Washington Commemorative Half Dollar was struck to commemorate the 250th birthday of the first President of the United States. It also has a couple of other interesting distinctions. It was the first commemorative Half Dollar struck since 1954. Further, it was the first 90% silver coin produced by the United States Mint since 1964. It is an easily affordable piece to add to your collection, even if commemorative coins are not necessarily your focus, given its unique place in US numismatics.
The Obverse depicts Washington on horse back while the Reverse shows the east facade of Washington’s home, Mount Vernon.
Only 2.2 million of the commemorative were minted.
