US Statue of Liberty Commemorative Half Dollar  1986
US Statue of Liberty Commemorative Half Dollar 1986

It was about 1986 when the US government figured out that it could sell nice-looking commemorative coins for much more than they were worth, and make a handsome profit. This coin is worth 50 cents, its face value, but the mint sold them for about $7 US dollars each, not a bad margin!

These coins carry a beautiful design and the sentimental value can be very high. If they were silver, they would have substantial value. However these coins are made of copper nickel.

Typical retail prices today for unicirculated coins range from $1 to $3. A proof version, like the one in our picture, might bring $5 to $7. If you have one and want to sell it to a coin dealer, expect he or she would offer about 1/4 to 1/2 of the retail price.
