Franklin Half Dollars
The Franklin Half Dollar was quite popular and circulated widely, but it's run was cut short after the assassination of President John F. Kennedy and the introduction of the Half Dollar honoring the slain president.
As the price of silver rose in the 1960's and skyrocketed in the late 1970's, millions of these coins were melted for their silver value, a practice which, to a degree, has continued with the dramatic rise in silver prices of the last several years.
Franklin Half Dollars have a composition of 90% silver and 10% copper. Each coin has a weight of 12.50 grams and a diameter of 30.6 mm.
We offer Franklin Half Dollars in Circulated or Uncirculated condition. Our selection includes both raw and certified coins, and we also sell rolls and complete sets in various grades!
