Zimbabwe’s 50-cent coin from the 1990s and early 2000s depicting a radiant rising sun (a positive symbol for the future) is in stark contrast to the economic reality that gripped the nation in the latter years of the first decade of the 2000s as hyperinflation made “trillionaires” of the population.

The 1936 silver 50-cent coin from French Indo-China features Liberty with a spiked head, reminiscent of the Statue of Liberty, one of France’s greatest gifts to the United States of America. 

These are just a small sampling of the hundreds of options for a 50-cent coin collection. Truly, the half has never yet been told.
