Silver Franklin Home silver franklin half dollar mintage Store

Approximately 482 Million Silver Franklin Half Dollars were minted between 1948 - 1963. Many times less than the Silver Morgan Dollar at approximately 650 million! In addition, millions of Franklin Halves were melted from 1964 - 1968 leaving fewer for collectors. Based on the graph below one can easily see that certain years have far fewer Franklin half dollars than other years and that some mints were more active than others. Also a huge spike of mintage occurred in 1963 when it was announced that the Franklin Half Dollar was being replaced early by the JFK half dollar. At the time many collectors heralded it's demise only to see a resurgence of popularity and scarcity in the coming years for this highly collectible coin.

 The Denver mint struck the bulk of the Franklin silver coins due primarily to it's proximity to the silver mines in Colorado. Franklin halves struck in the San Francisco mint are sought after by many collectors due to the limited numbers of Franklins and high quality of the San Francisco mint.
