Liberty Seated Half Dollar - No Motto - First Of The Steam Powered Coins
Liberty Seated Half Dollars
In 1836, the steam-powered coinage made its debut in 1836. This led Mint officials to update the look of the coin as well. Liberty is now a seated figure with her left hand holding a staff topped by a Liberty cap. Her right hand is resting upon a shield. Thirteen stars form a half circle around her, and the date is below. This design first appeared on silver dollars in 1836, and it first showed up on the half dollar in 1839.
