1839 to 1891 Seated Liberty Half Dollars

The Seated Liberty Half Dollars were first minted 1838. Production stopped in 1891. This Seated Liberty design or Liberty Seated was fashioned by noted portraitist Thomas Sully and executed by Mint engraver Christian Gobrecht and replaced the old Capped Bust design of John Reich and William Kneass.

On the obverse, Gobrecht used a modified version of his Liberty, seated on a rock and surrounded by thirteen stars. The reverse kept the Reich-Kneass eagle from the previous issue with the denomination as HALF DOL.

This beautiful coin depicts a seated figure of Liberty with her right hand resting upon a shield and her left hand grasping a pole topped by a Liberty cap. The Liberty Cap was a symbols of preparedness and freedom.

1855 Seated Liberty Half Dollar

The Philadelphia Mint struck nearly two million Seated Liberty half dollars in 1839, the first year of issue. Seated Liberty halves remained in production for more than half a century, from 1839 through 1891, and mintages generally ranged between 500,000 and two million.

The Act of March 3, 1865 mandated the addition of the motto IN GOD WE TRUST to all silver coins above the dime and all gold coins above the three-dollar denomination. 1892, the dime, quarter, and half dollar were redesigned by Charles Barber, and the old, familiar Seated Liberty design was finally retired.
