Half Dollar

Engraver: William J. Leftwich




P United States Mint, Philadelphia, United States (1792-date)


The 1991-1995 World War II Half Dollar was minted and issued in 1993 to commemorate the 50th anniversary of America’s involvement in World War II. The commemorative coin program included three different coins, a clad half dollar, silver dollar, and $5 gold coin. While the program was expected to achieve popularity with a broad audience, the sales levels remained in line with other recent commemorative coin programs.

The 1993 World War II Half Dollar was issued in uncirculated or proof versions, both minted at Philadelphia. The half dollar was sold individually, or as part of a two-coin, three-coin, and six-coin set.

The half dollars were also included in two special products limited to a mintage of 50,000 units each. The Young Collector’s Edition featured the uncirculated half dollar packaged with interesting facts about the war and coin collecting. The Coin and Victory Medal Set contained the uncirculated half dollar and a reproduction of the World War II Victory Medal.
