About 1936 Texas Silver Commemoratives

The 1936 Texas half dollars mark the third annual installment of this commemorative type, which was struck from 1934 through 1938. The coin, honoring the 100th anniversary of Texas independence from Mexico in 1836, was designed by Pompeo Coppini. It features on its obverse an eagle and five-pointed star, while the reverse showcases a variety of elements, including the goddess Victory, the Alamo, and two cameo busts of Texas founders General Sam Houston and Stephen Austin. The coin was issued for $1.50, and most were saved in uncirculated condition.

In 1936, Texas halves were minted at the Philadelphia, Denver, and San Francisco Mints. The 1936 Texas half dollars are very common and readily available in grades ranging from MS62 up through MS66. Examples grading MS67 are scarce and those in the grades of MS68 or higher are quite rare. Most 1936 Texas halves exhibit excellent color and luster.

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.
