1923-S Monroe Doctrine Half PCGS MS62 SOLD
1923-S Monroe Doctrine Half PCGS MS62
The Monroe Doctrine Commemorative Half Dollar has a really unique design, particularly the reverse. The obverse has the heads of James Monroe and John Quincy Adams who were the Presidents in power at the time the Monroe Doctrine was instituted. The reverse features a very interesting image of the Western Hemisphere that is portrayed by two female figures. Surprisingly, the commemorative was issued in conjunction with a major film exposition held in Los Angeles in 1923 which really had nothing to do with the centennial of the Monroe Doctrine. This example of the 1923-S Monroe Doctrine Commemorative Half Dollar has been graded MS62 by PCGS. Despite the relatively low mint state grade, this coin has beautiful obverse toning. The toning is bright and vibrant with a mostly golden color in the center which transitions to red, blue and purple colors near the upper and lower rims. Although the toning is slightly spotty at the upper obverse in particular, the coin is much more attractive in hand than it appears in the photos. There are many light marks scattered across both sides of the coin which likely limited the numerical grade of the coin, but none are major and it is the bright colorful toning of the piece which draws the eye of the viewer. An attractively toned example of the Monroe Half Dollar.
