Very Nice 1922 Replica Ulysses S. GrantHalf Dollar USA American 50 Cents Free shipping with buy now


AA 704

Ulysses S. Grant was the 18th President of the United States and was also a decorated Civil War general who helped turn the tide of the war in favor of the Union. In 1921, a group arose calling themselves the Ulysses S. Grant Centenary Association. This organization’s goal was to coordinate special observances and create monuments in recognition of Grant’s impact on the country. To finance these ventures, the group sought the minting of up to 200,000 gold dollars. The bill was eventually emended to call for only 10,000 gold dollars, but also up to 250,000 half dollars. This amended legislation was passed on February 2, 1922.

The preparation of designs was entrusted to Laura Gardin Fraser, wife of James Earle Fraser, the artist who had fashioned the Buffalo nickel. Mrs. Fraser was an accomplished medalist in her own right, having won acclaim already for her work on the Alabama Centennial half dollar of 1921. Her design was used on both the gold and silver Grant coins. The obverse features a right-facing portrait of the general, with UNITED STATES OF AMERICA around the upper rim, HALF DOLLAR at the bottom, ULYSSES S. GRANT to the left and right of the portrait and the double dates 1822-1922 below it. The reverse shows the fenced-in clapboard house where Grant lived as a boy, shaded by a canopy of trees. IN GOD WE TRUST appears above and E PLURIBUS UNUM is broken into four lines to the left. The designer's initial G (for her maiden name, Gardin) appears below Grant’s bust, between the double dates.



An excellent example of a numismatic coin this will work well as a space filler in any coin collection.
