A handsome uncirculated example of the 1915-S Panama-Pacific commemorative half dollar. The Panama-Pacific Exposition took place in San Francisco in 1915 and occupied much of the waterfront that today makes up the Marina District.  The exposition drew millions of visitors to the city to marvel at the industrial innovations and the international pavilions on hand.  It marked the completion of the tremendous civil engineering feat of the Panama Canal and served as a celebration and showcase of San Francisco’s return from the devastating earthquake of 1906.
