Half Dollar Tubes | Walkers, Franklins, Kennedys
Half Dollar Coins have been produced by the United States Mint since it opened its doors in 1794. In latter years, Half Dollars have been minted primarily for collectors. Yet the conventional means of storage often used by collectors--such as cardboard and paper--can disintegrate over time, leaking acidic chemicals onto their surface. This causes oxidation, spots and even discoloration. Provident Metals carries CoinSafe Brand Tubes to safely store your Half Dollar Coins.
Half Dollar Coins manufactured from 1794 - 1947 were made of silver, each stunning design symbolizing American liberty and freedom. In 1948, the obverse of the widely-used Half Dollar featured Benjamin Franklin, who, though not a President, was a key figure in shaping the history of the United States.
Today’s familiar Half Dollar--widely referred to as a Fifty-Cent Piece--features the image of John F. Kennedy, 35th President of the United States, who was tragically assassinated in 1963. Designed by Gilroy Roberts, the coin’s obverse was created immediately following the death of the nation’s youngest President. The coin’s reverse was designed by Frank Gasparro, based on the Presidential Seal. Blanketed in 50 stars, the Kennedy Half Dollar features more stars than any other circulation coin.
