DESCRIPTION
Magnificent 1936 Columbia Half Dollar
Just 4 Finer at PCGS and 2 Finer at CAC

1936 Columbia, South Carolina Sesquicentennial Half Dollar. MS-67+ (PCGS). CAC.
A truly captivating Superb Gem with satiny and untouched surfaces throughout. The centers showcase a subtle blend of golden tan and pearly luster, while the borders are ringed in vibrant bands of rainbow color across the peripheral legends. This color glows intensely under direct lighting and delivers exceptional eye appeal to match the preservation. Just 4 coins are graded higher at PCGS and only 2 rank finer at CAC, making this ideal for a world-class set of toned coins or Commemorative half dollars.
Half dollars of this type were authorized by Act of Congress dated March 18, 1936, to commemorate the sesquicentennial of the founding of Columbia, South Carolina. Sale of these coins was intended to raise funds for various celebrations marking this event. The official sale price was $1.25 per individual coin, $6.45 per three-piece PDS set. The Philadelphia Mint issue has a mintage of 9,000 coins for distribution, but the total number of PDS sets sold could not have exceeded 8,000 sets, the mintage for the 1936-D and 1936-S issues. Just about 6,000 examples survive in Mint State, but most of these are confined to MS-66 and lower by bagmarks and friction. At MS-67+ (PCGS) CAC with stunning color, this is certainly among the most desirable known.
