Get One of Every San Francisco Mint Franklin Half Dollars Ever Struck!

Long before the Franklin Half Dollar series was cut short by the assassination of JFK in 1963, the San Francisco Mint stopped striking them. The first S-Mint Franklin was struck in 1949, and the last in 1954, making a complete collection only five coins (none were struck in 1950). Today, nearly fifty years after they were last minted, these big 90% silver Franklins are hard to find. Why? Well, there weren't very many minted to start with. In fact, San Francisco struck barely 7% of all the Franklins minted! And an even worse fate awaited them. In the 1960s, silver prices skyrocketed, and the hefty amount of silver in these S-Mint Franklins made them a prime target for meltdowns. Through a diligent effort, we've assembled a small number of complete S-Mint Franklin sets from the "Granite Lady." Each coin is in at least Fine condition. Your set comes in a deluxe presentation case with a certificate of authenticity. Don't miss out-not only will you have this scarce collection, you'll save big off what the coins sell for individually.

Mint Name
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.
