This coin is the first ever created by the Mint to carry a living person's portrait. The busts are of William Wyatt Bibb, the first governor of Alabama, and T.E. Kilby, governor at the time of the event. The 22 stars indicate that Alabama was the 22nd state admitted to the Union. The inscriptions include United States of America, Half Dollar, In God We Trust, and Bibb 1921 Kilby.
