1986S Statue of Liberty half dollar graded proof 70 ultra cameo by NGC

This was one of a trio of coins that were issued to celebrate the centennial of the dedication of the Statue of Liberty. Created in France as a gift to the American people, the Statue of Liberty stands in the middle of New York Harbor, placed there to greet incoming immigrants to Ellis Island.

Proceeds from the original sale of these coins went to a fund used to restore the Statue of Liberty and the museum at Ellis Island. That restoration was eventually completed, and the sale of these coins helped in a small way to create the funding for that restoration.

The design of this coin shows a sunrise behind an image of the Statue of Liberty with the skyline of New York in the background. The other side of the coin depicts a family if immigrants looking out over the harbor from the pier at Ellis Island. The inscription, “A Nation of Immigrants,” helps bring home the point that the vast majority of Americans are, or have lineage directly to immigrants to this land.

This coin was graded a perfect proof 70 ultra cameo by the Numismatic Guaranty Corporation. This means that their professional graders examined this coin and determined that there are no visible flaws on the coin as viewed during their examination. Proof 70 ultra cameo is a perfect grade, meaning there is no higher grade that can be assigned to this coin.
