The Silver Tone Half Dollar Coin Pocket Watch is the classic time piece. A simple but sleek silver tone case houses a genuine United States half dollar. The Silver Seated Liberty Half Dollar was minted from 1839-1891. This genuine silver US coin was designed by chief engraver of the US Mint Christian Gobrecht and was based on a sketch from artist Thomas Scully. It reflected America's neo-classical taste at the time. During the 52 years of production, the Seated Liberty Half went through several design changes including adding the motto "In God We Trust." The coin is secure in the pocket watch casing and opens to quartz style and second sweeping hand over classic Roman numerals. The pocket watch is 1 7/8 inches in diameter and hangs from a 14 inch steel fob open link chain. This historical high polished time piece displays the beauty of a genuine US coin on the front and then brushed finish on the back, which may be engraved and personalized. Comes with a Certificate of Authenticity.
