1/3 Pound Franklins

Saved from the Melting Pots: The Last Silver Franklins! To commemorate the 300th Anniversary of Benjamin Franklin's Birth, we're releasing historic Franklin Half Dollars that have been saved from government meltdowns! Since they are the last series of circulating U.S. coins to be struck entirely in 90% silver, Franklin Half Dollars are one of the most popular coins ever struck! The frenzy for obtaining decades-old Silver Franklins is exploding. Now, for the first time ever, we're releasing to the public bags of historic Silver Franklins not seen in circulation for decades. They're priced not by the rarity of the coins, but by silver weight - in this hefty third Troy pound Bag.

Guaranteed in Every Bag:

  • An early-year Silver Franklin Half Dollar from 1948 or 1949
  • At least one Franklin from every decade it was struck (1940s, 1950s & 1960s)
  • At least one coin struck at the famous San Francisco Mint
  • All coins in Fine to Almost Uncirculated condition
  • All 90% silver - GUARANTEED!

Because of their relatively recent striking, millions of Silver Franklins were melted in the great silver melts of 1964-68 and 1979-83. Since today's coins are nothing but copper, nickel and zinc, the surviving Silver Franklins are becoming more sought-after with each passing day! Last struck in 1963, Silver Franklins are being scooped up at an unprecedented rate. Get your Ben Franklin Silver Halves today!

Money that has served a purpose in the channels of commerce -- in other words, it has traded hands in exchange for goods or services. Once a coin has "hit the streets," it is no longer considered Mint State or Uncirculated.
Very Fine (VF) coins show moderate wear on the high points of their designs. All of the major details are still visible, but they're not sharp.
About Uncirculated (AU) coins have traces of light wear on many of their high points. At least half of the mint luster is still present on these types of coins.
Designs are lightly worn throughout Extremely Fine (XF) coins, but all features are clear and well-defined. In addition, traces of luster may show.
Fine (F) coins have moderate to considerable wear that is even. The entire design is still visible, but quite worn.

Mint Name
Philadelphia - P
From its humble beginnings on Seventh Street through four different locations, the United States Mint's "Mother Mint" at 151 North Independence Mall East in Philadelphia is the largest of its kind in the world. The Philadelphia Mint is home to die production for all U.S. coinage, as well as facilities that produce a daily average of 30 million coins worth about $1 million.
San Francisco - S
Established in 1853 to strike coins from California’s newly-discovered vast reserves of gold, the San Francisco branch of the United States Mint is famous for the quality, lustrous Morgan Silver Dollars produced at "The Granite Lady" from 1878 to 1921. After moving to a new building in 1937, coin production at the San Francisco mint shut down in 1955. A shortage caused regular coin production to resume in 1965. While the mintage of circulating coins ceased in 1981, proof coins and commemoratives are still struck at the San Francisco Mint today.
U.S. Mint
Created by the United States Congress through the Coinage Act of 1792, the United States Mint opened its first building in Philadelphia in 1793. Today, the U.S. Mint strikes circulating coins, as well as special collector coins and sets at the "Mother Mint" of Philadelphia and the branch mints of Denver, San Francisco and West Point.
