Honor two legendary Civil War leaders with this 90% silver commemorative half dollar! Today, 150 years after the start of the Civil War, two names still stand out among Confederate ranks – Robert E. Lee and Thomas “Stonewall” Jackson. Lee is remembered for his role as commander in chief of Confederate forces, while Jackson was considered by many to be the Confederacy’s most brilliant strategist.
Struck in 90% silver, these half dollars were issued in 1925 to help fund the construction of a monument to the Confederacy on Georgia’s Stone Mountain. Generals Jackson and Lee on horseback are featured on the obverse, while the reverse depicts an eagle on a cliff, with the inscription memorial to the valor of the soldier of the south. Just 1.3 million of these historic coins were released – don’t delay, add one to your collection today!
