The Alabama half dollars were authorized in 1920 for the statehood centennial, which was celebrated in 1919, but the coins were not manufactured until 1921. They were first offered to the public during President Warren G. Harding's visit to Birmingham on October 26, 1921. The obverse has busts of William Wyatt Bibb, first governor of Alabama, and T.E. Kilby, governor at the time of the centennial. This is the first instance of the use of a living person's portrait on a U.S. Coin. This coin is in brilliant uncirculated condition, as we negotiated a good price on the purchase of this coin, we are passing the savings on to our customers, and offering it at well below book value. We only have one available, so please don't order more than one. This item is not included in any promotions that may be in effect from time to time.
