    Gorgeously Toned 1915-S Panama-Pacific
    Half, MS67, With Repunched Mintmark

    1915-S 50C Panama-Pacific MS67 PCGS. CAC. The 1915-S Panama-Pacific half dollar is the only silver commemorative coin celebrating the famous exposition, as the other four associated issues are all gold. An interesting provision in the enabling legislation allowed for the actual production of the half dollars on Mint equipment at the exposition, with as many as needed to be remelted in order to provide an educational demonstration and continuous coinage. The net distribution of only 27,134 pieces was far less than the 200,000 authorized maximum. With an obverse design by Charles E. Barber and reverse by George T. Morgan, the pieces also neatly encapsulate the artistry of the Mint's chief engraver and his more-talented assistant, at a period shortly before Barber's death in 1917.
    This gorgeous Superb Gem further enhances the lovely design through its original toning, blending pinkish-gold centers with tinges of ice-blue near the rims on each side, more generously on the reverse. An extra bonus is the nifty mintmark, plainly repunched north. Population: 76 in 67, 2 finer (11/09).(Registry values: N2998)
