Why Choose This 2003-P First Flight Commemorative Half Dollar?

To celebrate the 100th anniversary of the Wright brothers’ first flight, the US Mint struck 3 different designs in 2003. This 2003 First Flight commemorative half dollar was struck at the Philadelphia Mint. It has a regular finish and a lower final mintage than the proof version. The final mintage for this version was 57,122. This figure is quite low and certainly something to consider. The design on the front displays the Wright Monument in North Carolina and the design on the opposite side shows the beginning of the Wright brothers’ first flight, just after takeoff.

This low mintage 2003-P First Flight commemorative half dollar was submitted to NGC for grading. Since it was submitted to NGC, it is protected by one of their permanently sealed slabs. The professionals at NGC gave this coin the highest grade possible, MS70. This grade is reserved for coins with a regular finish that are completely flawless. With such a high grade and a low mintage, this coin is an easy choice for any collector.
