Description & Analysis

The emergency programs enacted during the first year of President Franklin D. Roosevelt's first year in office gave a much needed boost to the nation's crippled economy, and renewed commerce led to a very sudden increase in the demand for fresh coin. Though it would seem small by later standards, the nearly seven million half dollars coined at the Philadelphia Mint during 1934 was testament to the optimism then prevailing.

From 1934 onward there are no scarce coins in this series, though there remain relative differences in availability. This issue is plentiful across all grades through MS-67, and many examples are quite sharply struck.
