America's Last 90% Silver Half Dollars


It's hard to believe it's been almost 50 years since a 90% silver half dollar has been issued for circulation. With silver at a very attractive level today its time to take a look at the last three issues of the 20th century, The Big Three.... The Walking Liberty, Franklin, and Kennedy Half Dollars.

The Walking Liberty Half Dollar
The Walking Liberty was released in 1916... part of President Roosevelt's coin beautification project. It was his beleief that a super power had to have coinage the world would envy and desire. And boy was he right, the Walking Liberty is regarded as the most beautiful US coin ever released into circulation, the design was so populat the US Mint released it again when the Silver Eagle Dollar was introduced in 1986. Today the silver eagle is the #1 silver dollar in the world.

The Franklin Half Dollar
Introduced in 1948 the Franklin Half is the last of our circulating denominations to migrate away from Roosevelt's beautication project and feature the image of one of the significant presidents in our country's past (Lincoln cent, Jefferson Nickel, Roosevelt Dime & Washington quarter) but Franklin wasn't a president... actually he is the 1st "non" president. His contributions to our young country's success will always be remembered.

The Kennedy Half Dollar
If it were'nt for the unfortunate events of 1963 the Franklin Half Dollar might still be in circulation today. To honor President Kennedy, congress quickly petitioned the design change to our largest circulating coins. It was introduced in 1964, and with the rising price of silver, became a one-year special... It is the 1st Kennedy and the only 90% silver issue.

The Big Three
We have assembled all three into one collection. Each coin is a 90% silver issue, hand selected for quality and presented in a custom display. The Franklin and Walking Liberty will be circulated coins, and the year of issue will be our choice. But the Kennedy will be an uncirculated 1964.
