John Pell guiding a fatted calf appears on the obverse of 1938 Silver New Rochelle Half Dollar Coins. Pell, who sold the land that would become New Rochelle, is depicted in classical 17th-century clothing. This design was completed by Gertrude Lathrop and you can find her initials on the lower right portion of the field. You can also find inscriptions reading Settled 1688, Incorporated 1899, New Rochelle, New York.

A fleur de lis is featured on the reverse side of 1938 Silver New Rochelle Half Dollar Coins. This beautiful type of lily is featured on both the seal of New Rochelle and its French eponym, La Rochelle. In addition to this elegant design, there are also inscriptions on the reverse field that read United States of America, Liberty, In God We Trust, E Pluribus Unum, and 1938 Half Dollar.

With a population of nearly 80,000, New Rochelle is considered the seventh-largest city in New York. Located just north of New York City, New Rochelle was established by about 33 families in 1688. As Protestants, they were attempting to escape persecution in their largely Catholic homeland of France. These coins can be seen as a celebration of this community and the historic city they established.
