In 1982, the nation celebrated the 250th birthday of George Washington, Founding Father and First President of the United States of America! This jubilee led to the release of the first modern commemorative half dollar! It had been decades since the last officially released commemorative silver dollar, so this was a big deal! The 1982-S George Washington Silver Half Dollar is struck in 90% silver, which silver collectors love. Interestingly, it is 100x as rare as the famous 1964 Kennedy Half Dollar since only 2,210,458 were minted! This less popular piece tends to be overlooked.
These pieces have a stunning MS67 grade by NGC. To top it off, they have been signed by Thomas Uram. He is President of the Pennsylvania Association of Numismatists and a previous member of the American Numismatic Association (ANA) Board of Governors, as well as a lifelong collector. He is one of the most influential men behind your favorite modern coins, so his signature makes this piece truly exceptional!
