The 1986 Statue of Liberty Half Dollar was one of three commemorative coins issued to celebrate the 100th anniversary of the dedication of the Statue of Liberty. The other two coins included a silver dollar and $5 gold piece. Notably, the half dollar was the first commemorative coin for this denomination struck in the copper-nickel clad composition.
The half-dollar coins were sold individually or in two coin Sets including the silver dollar, three-coin Sets including the silver dollar and $5 gold coin, or six-coin sets, including proof and uncirculated versions of each coin.
Since the coins did not contain precious metals content, the pricing was the lowest for the program at $5 or $6.50 for uncirculated and proof versions during a “pre-issue” period. The regular pricing was $6 or $7.50. The total mintage exceeded 7 million pieces.
