1993 WW II 50th Anniversary Half Dollar

The U.S. Commemorative program the 1991-1995 World War II Half Dollar is tad confusing as it was minted in 1993 but the date of issue appears nowhere on the coin. The date range of 1991-1995 is actually a 50 year anniversary of World War II from 1941-1945 and not the year or years of mintage. Additionally, it was one of three coins issued, which also included a silver dollar and $5 gold coin.

The reverse was designed by Bill J. Leftwich and features a Pacific island battle scene. On the outer periphery are the words “UNITED STATES OF AMERICA”, “HALF DOLLAR”, and “E PLURIBUS UNUM”. In the lower right of the design are the mint mark “P” for Philadelphia and the designer's initials “BL” and engraver's initials “TJF”.
