FRANKLIN HALF DOLLARS: The Franklin half dollar, made of 90% silver, was struck by the United States Mint from 1948 to 1963. The fifty-cent piece pictures founding father Benjamin Franklin on the obverse and the Liberty Bell on the reverse. Chief Sculptor-Engraver John R. Sinnock's design on the reverse is also unusual. Although it complies with laws that dictate an eagle must appear on the coin, the small eagle to the side appears to be an afterthought. The design was changed in 1964 to honor the assassinated President John F. Kennedy.

Magnifier measures 4 1/2" W x 2 1/8" H x 3/8" D and features 5x and 8x magnification.

A handy, complimentary coin checklist is included to assist with your collecting needs. Whether you're shopping online or at a coin show you will have this handy list that correspondes with the half dollar coin series.
