(1992) Christopher Columbus Quincentenary

The Columbus quincentenary was honored on U.S. three coins. This copper-nickel half dollar, designed by Mint sculptor T. James Ferrell, depicts Columbus landing in the New World on the obverse, and his three ships on the reverse. Mint sculptor John Mercanti designed the silver dollar obverse, which features a full-length figure of Columbus beside a globe, with his ships above. The reverse, by Mint sculptor Thomas D. Rogers Sr., is a split image of the Santa Maria and the U.S. space shuttle Discovery.
