    Benjamin Franklin was one of the most influential Founding Fathers of the United States, but his role was far from the battlefields or the halls of Congress throughout much of his career. Franklin was an inventor and writer, and more importantly, an overseas diplomat currying favor for the American cause during the Revolution. Right now, the 90% Silver Franklin Half Dollar is available from JM Bullion.

    Coin Highlights:

    • Arrives in a plastic tube.
    • Consists of a total of 20 coins.
    • Contains ~7.15 Troy oz of actual silver content per 20 coin roll.
    • Bears a face value of $.50 (USD) backed by the federal government.
    • Obverse features the right-profile portrait of Franklin.
    • Reverse includes the Liberty Bell.

    The path to appearance on coinage for Benjamin Franklin was a complicated one. Under an 1890 statute, coin designs could not be changed without Congressional approval unless the design had been in service for 25 years including the first issue year.

    Starting in 1933, US Mint Director Nellie Tayloe Ross wanted to see the man she admired on the nations coinage. However, the quarter had just been redesigned in 1932 to feature George Washington. The Walking Liberty Half Dollar and Mercury Dime could be changed without Congressional approval in 1940, but World War II interfered.

    The high demand for coins during World War II made it difficult to replace designs, with the half dollar and dime eligible as of 1940. In 1946, the dime was redesigned to honor the recently deceased President Franklin D. Roosevelt.

    That left the Walking Liberty Half Dollar to be replaced with Franklins likeness. Benjamin Franklin appeared on the obverse of the half dollar from 1948 until 1964, when his image was replaced by that of the assassinated John F. Kennedy. Franklins right-profile portrait was created by mint engraver John R. Sinnock, who also created a Liberty Bell design for the reverse.

    The reverse side of the 90% Silver Franklin Half Dollars was dominated by the Liberty Bell, an iconic landmark of Franklins hometown of Philadelphia, PA. However, US law dictated that the American bald eagle must appear on the reverse of all half dollars, so a small heraldic eagle was put in on the bells right.

    All 90% Silver Franklin Half Dollars available here come in plastic tubes with a total of 20 half-dollar coins included. The coins were struck between 1948 and 1964.
