The Illinois Centennial half dollar is one of the few real success stories in U. S. commemorative coinage. A superb piece of sculpting, its appeal as a work of art is just as evident today as it was in 1918. The entire authorized issue was sold; although many pieces remained on hand in Springfield banks as late as the 1930s, none were ever returned to the Mint for melting. Additionally, the money raised from sales of these coins was actually used for the legitimate and honorable purpose that Congress intended, never a certainty with such coin programs. Last but not least, collectors prize these half dollars, as they bear one of the most attractive designs in over a century of commemorative coinage.

Legislation passed on June 1, 1918 authorized the coining of not more than 100,000 Illinois Centennial half dollars. The proceeds were to fund centennial celebrations being held by counties throughout the state. As these events were already underway when the bill became law, the expeditious coining of the Illinois half dollars was a must. So the work of preparing models based on designs furnished by the Illinois Centennial Committee was performed in-house: The Mint's Chief Engraver George T. Morgan sculpted the obverse, while his newly-hired assistant, John R. Sinnock, completed the reverse. Both artists ultimately designed many U. S. coins, although most of Sinnock's achievements were still some years in the future.
