Description & Analysis

While the Bland-Allison Act spurred the purchase and coinage of vast quantities of silver, practically all of the metal went toward dollar production, and minor coinage suffered comparative neglect. In 1882, for example, the year's production of half dollars amounted to just 4,400 pieces, a trifling quantity compared to the 11.1 million silver dollars struck at Philadelphia during the year.
