Why Choose This PF70 UC 1877 Barber Large Head Half Union Proof Silver Medal with an Exclusive Smithsonian Label?

In the late 1800s, coins known as the Union and Half Union were proposed. These were to be high-value coins that would be used by banks for transactions between them. The 1 oz. silver medal offered here is modeled after the proposed Half Union. The actual Half Union coin was to be made of gold with a face value of $50. This medal was struck in 2017.

Large Head Half Union

The designs on this medal were created by William Barber. The obverse shows a Liberty design. This version is the large head variety of the proposed obverse designs for the Half Union. The intended date of "1877" is at the bottom.

A stunning bald eagle design can be seen on the reverse. This heraldic bald eagle features a very high level of detail. The words "HALF UNION" are at the bottom of the design.
