The Franklin half dollar was first struck by the U.S. Mint in 1948. Production of these half dollars ran through 1963 and it's interesting to wonder how long the design would have been used if JFK had not been assassinated. The specimen shown here was struck at the Denver Mint in 1962. There were 35,473,281 of these minted.
- This Franklin half dollar was certified by PCGS.
- Like other Franklin halves, this one is 90% silver.
- This coin is from one of the final years that this design was in production.
Classic Franklin Design by Sinnock
Obverse: The portrait of Benjamin Franklin on the obverse is the work of John R. Sinnock. This is actually one of Sinnock's final works as Chief Engraver of the U.S. Mint, he died in 1947. The date this coin was struck is just to the right of Ben Franklin.
Reverse: The design on this side shows a large depiction of the Liberty Bell. This was initially the work of Sinnock as well, but he died before completing it. The design was finished by Sinnock's successor, the 9th Chief Engraver of the U.S. Mint, Gilroy Roberts.
PCGS MS64 FBL
When this Franklin half dollar was submitted to the Professional Coin Grading Service, it was found to be in uncirculated condition and was awarded the grade of Mint State 64. What may be more interesting is that it received the Full Bell Lines designation. This indicates that some of the most commonly worn areas of the design, including the bottom of the Liberty Bell, are still clear.
