Item Description

Elgin Centennial Half-Dollar Commemorative Coin: Legal tender U.S. commemorative fifty-cent piece struck at the Philadelphia Mint to honor the 100th anniversary of the founding of the City of Elgin.

Rovelstad designed and sculpted both the pioneer sculpture and this commemorative coin. The Elgin Centennial Half-Dollar Commemorative Coin features a depiction of Rovelstad’s "Pioneer Family Memorial" sculpture. Rovelstad was a renowned sculptor and medalist. He was the nation's first medalist sculptor of the U.S. War Department and also designed numerous U.S. military medals, and other civilian and commemorative medals.
