The United States Mint begain issuing commemorative half dollar coins in 1892 to celebrate the World's Columbian Exposition in Chicago. With the exception of the 1893 Isabella Quarter and the 1900 Lafayette Dollar, all of the classic silver commemorative coins issued have been half dollars. The series continued through 1954, with quite a lot of coins issued in the 1930's including the iconic Oregon Trail Memorial designed by buffalo nickel engraver James Earle Fraser and his wife, the Texas Independence Centennial, The Old Spanish Trail, Battle of Gettysburg Anniversary, and Battle of Antietam Anniversary. 

Rare coin collectors will truly enjoy adding these coins to their collection. Most can be obtained in MS-63 to MS-65. Despite the low mintages and occasional melting of unsold coins, most of what was minted remained in collectors' hands uncirculated.
