Satiny Mint State 1916-S Walking Liberty Half Dollar Featured in our Monthly iAuction 3533

Satiny Mint State 1916-S Walking Liberty Half Dollar Featured in our Monthly iAuction 3533

By James McCartney, Numismatist & Cataloger

1916 saw an aesthetic renaissance of our nation’s coinage, ushering in an era of numismatic artistry at the United States Mint.  Chief Engraver Charles Barber’s Liberty Head motif had dominated the silver denominations from the late 19th century through the first decade and a half of the 20th, but 1916 saw an end to this reign. The dime, quarter and half dollar were redesigned to exhibit depictions of Liberty that offered a relatively unprecedented diversity to our coinage.

Siege of Tournai 2 Sols

By Chris Chatigny, Cataloger & Numismatist

The iAuctions here at Stack’s Bowers are a great source for collectible coins within a reasonable budget and contain World and/or Ancient coins, with the inclusion of some notable highlights. One such highlight is this coin issued by the Spanish-controlled Netherlands, a copper 2 Sols. During the War of Spanish Succession, Europe and its colonial holdings erupted into conflict following the death of Charles II of the Habsburg Dynasty in 1700.
