Some evidence of the underlying host coin design will show somewhere, since the design is completely changed by the over-strike.

All are over-struck on US Mint silver half dollars of 1916-1947 (Walking Liberty) and Franklin (1948-1963).

All have thin die cracks on the obverse (running from chin down across chest) and on the reverse (across the sail and down across the hull of the ship).

Many different commemorative half dollars were produced by the US Mint during the “classic” commemorative period of 1892 to 1954. Several of them commemorated events such as the Columbian Exposition. Others commemorated people and places. One event that was not commemorated with a coin was the Norse American Centennial of 1925. Postage stamps were issued for the event and the US Mint produced octagonal medals in silver and a few in gold. These lacked a denomination and so they were medals and not coins. This was one of the few medallic issues by the US Mint that could have been a commemorative half dollar instead.

This fantasy issue is a “what if ?” situation. Had the US Mint produced a Norse American commemorative half dollar, it could have looked very much like this fantasy.

Do not attempt to use these as legal tender. This product is NOT endorsed or approved by the US Mint, US Treasury, or US Government.

Beautiful piece. This well done piece is going in my collection right along side my two original U. S. Mint 1925 Norse-American commemorative tokens.
