Between 1841 and 1869, when the transcontinental railroad was completed, over 400,000 people crossed the Oregon Trail to settle in the west. The journey took about 6 months by wagon, covering over 2,100 miles, and now you can own the 90% silver Oregon Trail commemorative honoring those brave pioneers. Issued in 1926, 1928 and 1933-39, these lustrous mint state half dollars mark the high point of numismatic art – and feature one of the most beautiful U.S. coin designs.
Designed by James Earle Fraser (the reverse) and his wife Laura Gardin Fraser (the obverse), this coin shows a Conestoga wagon heading westward toward the setting sun, and a Native American, his arm outstretched as if to say stop. Behind the warrior is a map of the United States with the Oregon Trail. You'll enjoy all of the lustrous original designs, so don't wait order today before they are all gone!
