(1935) Connecticut Tercentenary

In commemoration of the 300th anniversary of the founding of the colony of Connecticut, a souvenir half dollar was struck. Henry Kreis designed the coin. The famous Charter Oak is the main device on the reverse—according to legend, the Royal Charter was secreted in the tree during the reign of James II, who wished to revoke it. The charter was produced after the king’s overthrow in 1688, and the colony continued under its protection.
