The New Rochelle Sestercentennial Half-Dollar (1938) was minted to celebrate the 250th anniversary of the settlement of New Rochelle in Westchester County, New York. Artist and sculptor Gertrude K. Lathrop was chosen to design the coin. It was the last new commemorative coin issued by the U.S. Mint prior to World War II and was the last brand-new “commem” to appear for nearly a decade. New Rochelle is one of only ten cities to have been commemorated with a spendable coin minted by the federal government.
