Colombia 1921 50 centavos rev DSLR.jpg

This fifty centavos was struck in Philadelphia for Colombia, of a type issued 1916-22 and 1933. This type, with the portrait of hero Simon Bolivar, superseded the liberty head type last struck in 1908. The date is common. The Bogotá and Medellin mints also issued this type using substantially different dies. The minting of silver fifty centavos ceased in 1935 and when resumed in 1947, the new type was only .500 fine. To the delight and despair of collectors, the half dollars of Colombia come in a profusion of dates, styles, varieties and errors and form a collecting specialty all their own.

Recorded mintage: 1,000,000.

Specification: 12.5 g, .900 fine silver, .361 troy oz ASW, edge lettered DIOS LEI LIBERTAD.

Catalog reference: KM 274.
