The obverse of this 1995-S half dollar was created by no one else than the renowned American realist painter, Don Troiani. It depicts a battlefield drummer in full Civil War uniform. The hardship of war is written all over his face. He is certainly not in a happy place. This is exactly why Troiani is well-known for his extremely accurate military and historical paintings.
Troiani is the same gentleman who designed the obverse of the 1995-S Civil War Battlefield Preservation Silver Dollar – a depiction of two Civil War soldiers in a captivating scene on the battlefield.
Inscriptions on the obverse include: “LIBERTY,” “IN GOD WE TRUST,” the year “1995” and the “S” mintmark of the US Mint facility at San Francisco.
The reverse of this US commemorative coin depicts a cannon on the battlefield as created by T. James Ferrell. Inscriptions on the reverse include: “UNITED STATES OF AMERICA,” “E PLURIBUS UNUM,” “ENRICHING OUR FUTURE BY PRESERVING THE PAST” and its “HALF DOLLAR” face value.
This 1995-S Civil War Battlefields Commemorative Half Dollar Proof NGC PF69 UC Brown Label is proudly minted by the U.S. Mint. The United States Mint was founded in 1792 and manufactures circulating, collectible, and bullion coinage.
