US Commemorative Half: Stone Mountain  1925
US Commemorative Half: Stone Mountain 1925

What a great coin. Maybe it is because I am from the South, but I just like the design of this piece. Back in 1925 they had a better handle on what makes an appealing coin. This is just my opinion, of course!

That is none other than Stonewall Jackson and Robert E Lee on horseback, and the funds from the sale of these coins were used to carve their images into Stone Mountain, Georgia.

A well worn coin catalogs for $25 US dollars. In average circulated condition, like the coin in the picture, figure catalog around $50. In fully uncirculated condition these coins go for about $150.

Use our Important Terminology page to understand what 'catalog value' means.

Isn't the coin in the picture absolutely gorgeous? It shows that even a worn coin can pack plenty of pzazz and eye appeal.
