About 1925 Vancouver Silver Commemoratives
The 1925 Vancouver half dollar commemorates the 100th anniversary of the founding of Fort Vancouver in Washington state. The coin was designed by Laura Gardin Fraser and showcases on its obverse a side portrait of John McLoughlin, who built Fort Vancouver on the Columbia River in 1825. The reverse shows a buckskin-clad settler handling a musket, with Fort Vancouver and a mountainous scene anchoring the background. The coin was sold for $1 each.
The coin sold nearly 15,000 pieces – a relatively strong showing for a coin of rather regional interest. Many are known in circulated grades, but the majority of pieces encountered in the marketplace are in uncirculated grades ranging from MS63 to MS66. Examples grading MS67 or higher are quite scarce.
About CDN Prices
All CDN prices are based on proprietary market knowledge and technology developed by CDN Publishing, LLC.
CPG® prices represent retail levels. Collectors should refer to CPG values as a starting place for their negotiations, or auction bid reference.
Greysheet/Greensheet prices are wholesale market levels for collectible coins/paper money intended to indicate what a dealer, or wholesale, buyer would pay for the described item in the specified grade. Greysheet/Greensheet represent "sight-seen" values based on a buyer's in-hand review. The actual value can be more or less than this depending on factors including eye appeal and market timing.
Bluesheet (NGC & PCGS) prices represent the highest sight-unseen offers to buy on dealer networks like CDN Exchange. In many cases, there are no active sight-unseen buy offers, so CDN looks to the recent lowest market values for such an item. For this reason, Bluesheet values typically represent the floor of the market for the specified item. CDN only tracks Bluesheet on certain items.
CAC prices are for U.S. coins that meet the standards of the Certified Acceptance Corporation. You can learn more about CAC on their web site.
