How much are my U.S. 1936 Boone commemorative worth?

About 1936 Boone Silver Commemoratives

1936 Boone commemorative half dollars represent the third year of issue of this coin, intended to mark the 200th birth anniversary of Daniel Boone. The American folk hero and explorer helped settle the lands west of the Appalachian Mountains that became Kentucky and was born in 1734. The first Boone half dollars were released in 1934 during the year properly marking the 200th anniversary of the titular subject’s birth. However, the Boone half dollars, designed by Augustus Lukeman, continued through 1938.

The 1936 Boone half dollars are among the most common of the five-year series, with the Philadelphia issue boasting the largest mintage of all 1936 Boone halves (they were also struck at the Denver and San Francisco Mints). These pieces are widely available in the grades of MS62-66, though they are rare in MS67 levels or higher. Most possess decent to beautiful luster and color and overall nice eye appeal.

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.

Price movement is indicated for price changes in the last 30 days.
