(1946) Iowa Centennial

This half dollar, commemorating the 100th anniversary of Iowa’s statehood, was designed by Adam Pietz of Philadelphia. The reverse shows the Iowa state seal, and the obverse shows the first stone capitol building at Iowa City. This issue was sold first to the residents of Iowa and only a small remainder to others. Nearly all of the issue was disposed of quickly, except for 500 that were held back to be distributed in 1996, and another 500 in 2046.
