This beautiful coin commemorates the landing of the Pilgrims at Plymouth Rock, Massachussetts in 1620. It is one of a series of half dollars produced by the US mint between 1893 and 1954. The mint re-started production of commemorative coins in 1982, and has been going full-bore ever since. (They found out that collectors will pay outlandish prices for collectible coins. That's my opinion, of course.)
With very few exceptions, all US commems are remarkable pieces of coin artistry. Your Pilgrim coin is especially beautiful. (My opinion again!)
