Move pointer over the image to zoom in


The Franklin Half-Dollar was designed by Chief Engraver, John R. Sinnock and was struck for 16 years (1948-1963). The obverse and reverse of the Franklin Half-Dollar features lustrous blast-white surfaces. Its composition is 90 percent silver and 10 percent copper. Featured on the obverse of the Franklin Half-Dollar is the portrait of Benjamin Franklin. Engraved directly above his portrait is the word, “Liberty.” Below Franklin’s portrait is the, “In God We Trust,” motto.

Centered on the reverse side of the Franklin Half-Dollar is a Liberty Bell and above it are inscribed the words, “UNITED STATES OF AMERICA .” Also located on the left side of the Franklin Half-Dollar’s reverse are the words, “E PLURIBUS UNUM,” and directly below the Liberty Bell are the words, “Half Dollar.”

The Franklin Half Dollar series is widely collected in part because of its historical significance. Benjamin Franklin was one of the Founding Fathers of the United States, his legacy as a leading author, printer, politician, political theorist, scientist, inventor, statesman, freemason and diplomat makes him a major figure in America’s history. Collectors interested in American History should make it a point to build their Franklin Half-Dollar series because of Franklin’s importance in the early years of the United States.
