Why purchase this 1925 Stone Mountain Memorial Commemorative Silver Half Dollar?

The silver half dollar released to honor Georgia's Stone Mountain Memorial and southern soldiers was one of four commemorative coins issued by the U.S. Mint in 1925. Design of the coin is credited to the American sculptor Gutzon Borglum, designer of the memorial's bas-relief sculpture. Borglum is best known for creating the massive sculpture of Presidents Washington, Jefferson, Roosevelt and Lincoln at the Mount Rushmore National Monument. Struck from 0.3617 Troy oz. of .900 fine silver at the Philadelphia Mint, final mintage of the 1925 Stone Mountain Half Dollar is reported to be 1,314,709.

Gorgeous Commemorative Design
