The Capped Bust Half Dollar is a historic coin series that was minted by the United States from 1807 to 1839. Designed by John Reich, the obverse of the coin features Lady Liberty with a Phrygian cap, facing left, while the reverse depicts a bald eagle with a shield on its chest.

The design went through several modifications during its production period, resulting in different varieties such as the Lettered Edge and Reeded Edge types. The Capped Bust Half Dollar is characterized by a distinctive portrait of Liberty with her hair in a cap, giving the series its name.
