When the Silver Franklin Half Dollar was issued in 1948, Benjamin Franklin became the first person other than a president to be immortalized on a circulating U.S. coin. Even the Liberty Bell on the reverse is a “first"— all previous silver coins featured large stylized eagles (To comply with a requirement to include the national bird, a miniature eagle is adjacent to the bell). Now, you can own a complete collection covering each year the unique Franklin Half Dollar was minted, 1948 through 1963. It contains 16 coins — all .900 Fine Silver — including the valuable, low mintage 1955 issue. Comes in a handsome display case. Comes with a Certificate of Authenticity.
