The 1925 Stone Mountain Half Dollar is a unique commemorative coin minted to raise funds for the completion of the Stone Mountain Memorial in Georgia, a monument honoring Confederate soldiers. Here's a breakdown of the factors affecting its value:

Value Determinants:

  • Condition: As with most coins, the condition is a primary factor influencing value. Here's a general range:

    • Circulated Condition: These coins have been in circulation and will show wear. Their value can range from $40 to $250 depending on the details remaining. More worn examples might be closer to $40, while those with discernable features on the obverse (generals Lee and Jackson) and reverse (eagle and inscription) can reach higher values within this range.
    • Uncirculated Condition: Uncirculated specimens in mint state can be significantly more valuable. Grading by a reputable service like PCGS or NGC determines the exact worth. Generally, higher grades (MS-63 and above) with sharper details and full luster will command premium prices. Depending on the specific grade, exceptionally well-preserved MS-67 and above coins can reach several thousand dollars.
  • Commemorative Popularity: The Stone Mountain Half Dollar isn't among the rarest commemoratives, but it holds a niche appeal for collectors interested in commemorative issues or Civil War history.

Recommendation:

For the most accurate valuation of your 1925 Stone Mountain Half Dollar, it's highly recommended to get it professionally graded by a reputable service like PCGS or NGC. This step establishes the coin's condition and provides a more precise market value. This information is valuable whether you intend to sell the coin or add it to your collection.
