The half dollar was one of America’s most significant coins of the 20th century. A large coin that was often struck in the beauty of American silver, it began to disappear from pockets and purses by the 1960s… and by the end of the century it remained an elusive and mysterious prize.
This stunning collection includes some of the most desirable American coins of the 20th century, and contains almost two troy pounds of precious silver! Many of these coins are over 100 years old and have been out of circulation for generations.
Your collection includes:
- the Barber Half Dollars, minted between 1901 and 1915,
- the Walking Liberty Half Dollars, minted between 1916 and 1947,
- the Franklin Half Dollars, minted between 1948 and 1963,
- the Kennedy Half Dollars, minted between 1964 and 2000.
The highlights include low mintage coins like the 1921 Walking Liberty and 1955 Franklin as well as the Kennedy 1964 first-year issue that was also the last 90% silver coin ever minted for circulation.
Each coin in this collection is preserved in its own crystal-clear capsule for easy examination. The silver coins minted in 1901-1964 are presented in circulated condition with most major design details visible. Coins minted after 1964 are offered in uncirculated condition with all the same sharp detail as the day they left the U.S. Mint.
