Why order this Stone Mountain Memorial 1925 Half Dollar?

In 1916, a project to carve a massive memorial to the South's solders who fought in the Civil War began. Well into the 1920's, hope of finishing the project in a timely manner was evaporating. To raise funds to complete the project, Stone Mountain Confederate Monumental Association sought legislation to raise funds for the project with a commemorative coin. Although the coin was issued, just over 2.3 million pieces of the targeted 5 million were struck, and a million of those were melted. The final mintage number was 1,130,000 pieces. Each one was struck from 12.5 g of .900 fine silver at the Philadelphia Mint. This piece is in Almost Uncirculated condition, meaning that it retains full details save for some minor softness, which is limited to the high points.

Powerful Southern Generals Design by Gutzon Borglum

Both faces of the coin were designed by Gutzon Borglum, who was the original sculptor for the Memorial itself. The obverse features Generals Robert E. Lee and Stonewall Jackson on horseback. Inscriptions on this face include "STONE MOUNTAIN," "IN GOD WE TRUST," and "1925."

The reverse features a proud image of an eagle with hits wings spread. To the left is the inscription "MEMORIAL OF THE VALOR OF THE SOLDER OF THE SOUTH." Other inscriptions read, "UNITED STATES OF AMERICA," "E PLURIBUS UNUM" (From many, one), "LIBERTY," and "HALF DOLLAR."
