What is a 1796-P Draped Bust Half Dollar?

The 1796-P Special Draped Bust Half Dollar is a silver coin that was minted at the Philadelphia mint. It has a legal tender value of $0.50. As a "Special" coin, it was minted in a limited quantity, which makes it generally more rare than "business strike" or "mint strike" coins which are intended for circulation. The mintage of this coin is unknown and is therefore considered very rare at a minimum. This coin was minted in the first year of its series, and is a more popular coin to collectors for that reason, but not necessarily to investors. This coin contains a good amount of silver at 12.02326 grams (0.39 oz. Adjusted Silver Weight).
