The Franklin half dollar honors one of our nation’s most notable founding fathers, Benjamin Franklin. John S. Sinnock, the Mint’s Chief Engraver, was responsible for the design. It replaced the Walking Liberty half dollar in 1948. These half dollars were produced in large quantities until 1963. With the assassination of John F. Kennedy in November of that year, it was quickly determined that the fallen President would be honored on a new half dollar; the Kennedy half dollar was introduced in time for 1964.
Please note that we will send 90% Franklins from various years.
