After several years lacking new commemorative coins, the 1934 Maryland Tercentenary Half Dollar was issued to mark the 300th anniversary of English colonists arriving in Maryland. The colonists were sponsored by Cecil Calvert, or Lord Baltimore, who is depicted on the obverse of the coin.
The authorized mintage for the 1934 Maryland Half Dollar was a modest 25,000 pieces. The entire mintage was struck and distributed by the Maryland Tercentenary Commission. After conducting initial sales at $1 per coin, bulk quantities were made available at discounted prices, until the entire mintage was sold.
The Maryland Tercentenary Half Dollar is almost always encountered with a flat strike or friction at the highest points of the obverse portrait. This makes attractive, gem examples difficult to locate.
Authorization: Public Law 73-215
Maximum Authorized Mintage: 25,000, plus 15 assay coins.
