***Auction Highlight*** 1925 Lexington Near Top POP! Old Commem Half Dollar 50c Graded ms67+ By SEGS. Another celebrated issue of the early commemorative series is the 1925 Lexington Concord Sesquicentennial Half Dollar. This coin was issued to Celebrate the 150th Anniversary of the "Shot Heard 'Round The World", which symbolically began the American Revolution and Forever Changed the World. The coins were designed by Chester Beach at the request of the local communities. The obverse was based on Daniel Chester French’s statue of a Minuteman soldier and the reverse depicts the Old Belfry from which Minutemen were alerted to action. The Lexington and Concord Half Dollars carried an authorized mintage of 300,000 coins. The Philadelphia Mint produced 162,099 coins which were nearly entirely sold. The distribution took place through local banks, with a vast number sold to the local communities and even more sold throughout New England. Wider demand was a result of the true historical significance of the commemorative issue.The coins were packaged in small wooden boxes, which featured images from the obverse and reverse of the Lexington and Concord Sesquicentennial Half Dollar, and originally sold for $1 each.When looking at a Lexington Commemorative, the points to check for wear include the Minute Man’s Thighs and the Near Corner of the Belfry, particularly Toward its Top. These same Highpoints may also show Weakness of Strike. A Corey's Pick, Bid to Win Coin
