Bust Half Dimes

1829-1837

The Bust Type Half Dime was designed by William Kneass. It was minted only out of Philadelphia and lasted from 1829 through 1837. The dime was later replaced with the Seated Liberty design.

First minted in 1829 with Lady Liberty facing left with six stars on the right of the coin and seven stars on the left. The word "Liberty" was moved to the mobcap which contained her hair, while the year was still displayed at the bottom. The coins reverse displays an eagle which has a union shield on its breast and is clutching three arrows and an olive branch. Appearing at the bottom of the coin is "5 C." stating the coins value. The words "United States of America" arcs along the top border with the motto "E Pluribus Unum" (Out of Many, One) on a ribbon displayed just above the eagle.
