US Daniel Boone Commemorative  1934 to 1938
US Daniel Boone Commemorative 1934 to 1938

This is a beautiful old US half dollar minted during a period when several special half dollars were minted to commemorate various people, places, and things. There are collectors of US coins who specialize in these commemoratives, and assembling a complete set is a significant accomplishment. Boone himself appears on the obverse (front or 'heads') side, while the Indian chief on the reverse is Blackfish of the Shawnees.

Date and some details matter on these coins, while mint mark (none, D or S) does not influence value significantly. Prices below are very approximate catalog values for a single coin. Our Important Terminology page explains how to interpret catalog values.

Coins dated 1936 to 1938: 1934 PIONEER YEAR

The 1935 coins with 1934 PIONEER YEAR are the valuable ones.
