The Barber Half Dollar was introduced in 1892, along with two other similarly redesigned denominations. The obverse of the coin features the head of Liberty facing right in a Phrygian cap with a wreath of laurel. The reverse features a heraldic eagle, with talons clutching an olive branch and a bundle of arrows. The designer of the series was Charles E. Barber, for whom the coins are named. The series was preceded by the Liberty Seated design and following by the Walking Liberty design.
