Why choose this 2-Coin Set - (2017) United States Smithsonian - William Barber 1877 Half-Union Pattern 1 oz. Silver medal for your collection?

Produced in 2017 by the Smithsonian this Proof silver medal is created as a reproduction of the famous William Barber U.S. coin, a coin that was never officially released for circulation. The original 1877 coin was requested in hopes to replace paper money which had become scarce in the 1800s and although ultimately struck down, two original dies of the intended design survived and are now featured on this silver medal.

Featuring the classic design by William Barber

The obverse features a left-facing portrait of Lady Liberty, wearing a coronet and encircled by a symbolic thirteen stars for the original thirteen colonies this design was created by the 5th Chief Engraver of the U.S. Mint, William Barber and was originally created in 1877.

Depicted on the reverse is an ornate bald eagle design hovering over inscriptions which state the medal's year of release, the name of design and metal content.
