Ben Franklin half dollar history
The Franklin half dollar was struck between 1948 to 1963 using 90% silver and 10% copper. The coin was designed by John R. Sinnock, who was the Chief Engraver at the Mint at the time. The coin's obverse features the head of Benjamin Franklin, and there’s an image of a Liberty Bell on the reverse.
The Franklin half dollar was designed as a replacement for the walking liberty half dollar. Perhaps unsurprisingly, the Franklin half dollar wasn’t very well received by most Americans who preferred the Walking Liberty design. For this reason, the Franklin half dollar wasn’t widely collected at the time, which has contributed to its scarcity today in uncirculated condition.
Each uncirculated Franklin half dollar is worth between $24 and $77 depending on the year that it was minted. Whole sets of coins often sell for a much higher price. The coins are worth a lot less in circulated condition and usually sell for between $10 and $18 in good condition. Coins that are worn often only sell for the price of their silver content, which will be determined by the current silver value.
