Rare half dollar sells for $2,225 online

A 1919 RARE coin recently sold for $2,225 online.

Adolph Alexander Weinman created the 1919 S Walking Liberty Half Dollar in 1916, and it was made until 1947.

All circulated grades of these half dollars are scarce, and if they are found in mint condition, they rank as the fifth rarest coin in this particular series.

They are valuable because of their size, silver content, denomination, and paused production.

Finding a half dollar may be challenging because they are no longer made.

The starting bid for this coin was 99 cents, but it quickly increased to 23 dollars.

From there, it continued to appreciate in value until, after 36 bids, it finally sold for $2,225.
