Bust Half Dollars (1801 - 1839)

The first half dollar was so-called “Flowing Hair” and featured the portrait of Liberty with stars alongside her on the obverse, and a small eagle surrounded by laurel branches on the reverse. After just two years, it was replaced by the “Draped Bust” design with Small Eagle Reverse minted only in 1796-1797. In 1801, Chief Engraver Robert Scot introduced the Bust Half dollar featuring a Heraldic Eagle on the reverse and Miss Liberty on obverse surrounded by 13 stars, representing the 13 original colonies. In 1807, the Draped Bust halves were replaced by the “Capped Bust, Lettered Edge (1807-1836)” Half Dollars – designed by John Reich. The obverse had Miss Liberty facing left instead of right and with curly hair tucked in a mobcap. Lettered Edge Capped Bust halves were issued until 1836, when they were replaced by the Capped Bust halves with a reeded edge. There are multiple major varieties of Bust Half dollars for almost every date. These varieties have captivated coin collectors for generations. In 1967, Al C. Overton spurred collectors' interest in Bust half dollars when he identified and codified over 500 die varieties and openly expressed his fascination for these beautiful coins in his book “Early Half Dollar Die Varieties 1794-1836.”
