Description & Analysis

Barber half dollars were coined at four different mints only in the period from 1906 to 1908, resulting in higher annual production totals than any other year from 1892 to 1915. Total half dollar production was 11,650,600 coins in 1907 and 11,638,828 in 1908. The 1,354,000 half dollars struck in Philadelphia in 1908 represent just under 12% of the total.
