The Big Three Half Dollar Set

While you’ll often hear the phrase “the Silver Dollar is king” in collecting circles, that wasn’t always the case. Between 1935 and 1971, the United States Mint didn’t strike any Silver Dollars – zero, nada, zilch! Instead, the largest 90% silver coins in circulation during that time were these beautifully-designed half dollars! This set brings together those coins – the “Big Three” Silver Half Dollars. The coins include the Walking Liberty Half Dollar, the Franklin Half Dollar, and the coveted 1964 Kennedy Half Dollar, the only year the coin was minted in 90% silver.

  • 1916-1947 WALKING LIBERTY HALF DOLLAR – Adolph A. Weinman's iconic Walking Liberty design first made its debut on the 1916 half dollar, lasting three decades before bowing out in 1947. In 1986, this iconic image was reborn for the Silver Eagle with her exquisitely detailed beauty remaining on the coin ever since. It is considered by many coin experts to be one of the most beautiful U.S. coins ever made. This coin will come in Extremely Fine (XF) condition.
  • 1948-1963 FRANKLIN HALF DOLLAR – Featuring Founding father Benjamin Franklin, the Franklin Half-Dollar was struck for only 16 years. It was designed by John R. Sinnock, the 8th Chief Engraver at the U.S. Mint. Sinnock died before his designs were completed and they were completed by his successor, Gilroy Roberts, the Mint’s 9th Chief Engraver. The coin’s reverse showed the Liberty Bell – crack and all – and a small American Eagle. This coin will come ion About Uncirculated (AU) condition.
  • 1964 KENNEDY HALF DOLLAR – The U.S. Mint started work on the Kennedy Half Dollar on November 25, 1963 – just three days after President John F. Kennedy was assassinated in Dallas. Using existing works by Roberts and Mint Sculptor Frank Gasparro, it was intended as a one-year-only commemorative. The coin proved to be so popular that it has been issued ever since. However, no one knew that rising silver prices would make this first-year Kennedy Half Dollar the only year the coin would be struck in 90% silver. This coin will come in Brilliant Uncirculated (BU) condition.

The set comes housed together in a custom-designed insert with a clear plastic holder. Dates will vary except for the 1964 Kennedy Half Dollar. Assembling a collection like this is no easy task. Melted for their silver or worn out in circulation, the remaining population of each coin just gets smaller and smaller with every passing year. But now you can own ALL THREE of these historic U.S. Half-Dollar designs in a single set! Just hurry – only a limited number of these Big Three Silver Half Dollar Three-Piece Sets are available.
