(1936) Cleveland Centennial / Great Lakes Exposition

A special coinage of fifty-cent pieces was authorized in commemoration of the centennial celebration of Cleveland, Ohio, on the occasion of the Great Lakes Exposition held there in 1936. The designs were prepared by Brenda Putnam. Although half the coinage was struck in 1937, all were dated 1936. The obverse has a bust of Moses Cleaveland, and the reverse displays a map of the Great Lakes region with a compass point at the city of Cleveland. Nine Great Lakes cities are marked by stars.
