1836 Capped Bust Half Dollar


The original design for the Capped Bust Half Dollar was modified in 1836. Christian Gobrecht performed some modifications to the original design by John Reich. The features of Liberty are noticeably different and the banner on the reverse with "E Pluribus Unum" was removed and the denomination changed to read "50 Cents". At the same time, the specifications of the coin were altered to 90% silver and 10% copper and the edge was reeded.

For the 1836 Capped Bust Half Dollar, more than 6 million coins were struck with the older design, while approximately 1,200 were struck with the new design. The latter is one of the key issues of the series.
