As we commemorate the 150th anniversary of the Civil War, collectors are scrambling to add Civil War artifacts to their collections. No collection can be complete without one of the FIRST-EVER Civil War commemorative coins struck by the U.S. Mint: The 1925 Stone Mountain Silver Half Dollar. The coin features Generals Robert E. Lee and Stonewall Jackson on horseback, exactly as they appear on the Stone Mountain Memorial near Atlanta, Georgia. The memorial was designed by famed sculptor Gutzon Borglum, whose next masterpiece would be the magnificent Mount Rushmore. Etched in History, Carved in Stone, Struck in Silver!
