How much is my U.S. 1936 Long Island 50c business strike commemorative worth?



About 1936 Long Island 50c MS Silver Commemoratives

The Long Island Tercentenary, designed by Howard Kenneth Weinman, was issued during the height of the commemorative coin bonanza of the mid 1930s, a short but dizzying period when a dozen or more different commemoratives issued during any single year. More than 100,000 Long Island halves were struck and they were sold for $1 each. Hoards filtered into the marketplace into the 1960s, ensuring this coin remains relatively common in the industry even now.

The majority of Long Island half dollars are encountered in uncirculated condition, but pieces grading MS67 or higher are quite rare due to broad, flat surfaces on both the obverse and reverse. With the coin prone to surface detractions, it’s difficult to find nice pieces that are absent a smattering imperfections.

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.

The values listed are only indications. CDN Publishing, LLC does not buy or sell collectibles.
