Designed by George T. Morgan, the famous designer
of the Morgan dollar, this silver half dollar carries
a haunting portrait of one of histories most famous
leaders. The engraving of the beardless young Abraham
Lincoln is based on a statue in Springfield, Illinois.
His image captures the deep reflectiveness of the great
future president. The reverse portrays the Illinois State
Seal for the 100th anniversary of the state’s admission
to the Union in 1818. It was the first of many U.S.
commemoratives to honor a state. Our Extra Fine quality
retains strong details on all features of this 90% silver
