The New York 300th Anniversary Silver Commemorative Coin

A highly sought-after 90% silver coin dating back almost 90 years!


New York began as New Netherland, a tiny colony founded in 1624 by French and Belgian settlers — Huguenot-Walloons seeking religious freedom under sponsorship of the Dutch East India Company. In 1924, the U.S. Mint chose to honor the Empire State’s humble and heroic heritage with a commemorative coin designed by two of America’s greatest artists — George T. Morgan of the legendary silver dollar and James Earle Fraser, creator of the Buffalo nickel! Precious few have survived to this day. Presented in gently circulated condition so you may appreciate the design details.

This 90% silver half-dollar:

  • Was the only commemorative coin to be released in 1924.
  • Set a precedent with its subjects: two historic figures who spearheaded the early Huguenot religious movement in Europe, and were martyrs to its cause.
  • Features the Nieuw Nederland, the ship that brought early settlers to New York.
  • Is enhanced by two mint-condition U.S. stamps marking the Huguenot-Walloon Tercentenary.
  • Comes in a deluxe 5.5" x 8.5" bonded-leather Collector’s Folio, complete with intriguing artwork and narrative.
