The Only Lincoln Silver Half-Dollar

A compassionate, revealing portrait of young Abraham Lincoln. Most Americans don’t even know it exists. Yet the only Lincoln fifty-cent coin in U.S. history — the 1918 Illinois Centennial Commemorative — could easily become one of the most sought-after coins in the country with its centenary fast approaching. A true scarcity, only one Lincoln half-dollar was minted for every 4 million namesake pennies struck to date! What’s more, this extraordinary coin was struck in 90% silver — a level of precious metal not seen in modern commemorative half-dollars. Fortunately, we have secured a small quantity of these landmark 90% silver coins.

To appreciate the distinctiveness of this scarce Lincoln half-dollar, compare the portrait with that on the classic Lincoln penny. Where the one-cent piece presents an austere, dignified President helming the nation at a time of great crisis, the silver half-dollar is remarkably different. On it we see a very private man full of promise and deep in thought. Where the Lincoln penny celebrates a beloved legend, the 1918 Lincoln silver half-dollar reveals a very human man.

As the ideal complement, this seldom-seen commemorative coin is accompanied by the coveted one-cent Lincoln stamp issued more than half a century ago. Like the coin, it too shows Honest Abe as a beardless younger man. Both coin and stamp are protectively encapsulated and displayed, along with informative narrative and an archival portrait of Lincoln, in an elegant, bonded-leather Collector’s Folio. Preserved in desirable circulated Extra Fine condition, the coin is specially mounted so you can enjoy every exquisite detail, front and back.

Your satisfaction is guaranteed. If not delighted with your Folio, you may return it within 30 days for replacement or refund. Already more than 90 years old, the 90% silver 1918 Lincoln half-dollar is certain to grow in popularity as the countdown to its centenary draws nearer. Disappointed collectors who waited to secure a Lincoln half-dollar may be shut out or forced to pay high premiums after the 100th anniversary. Order yours today!
