Whether you are looking for pieces with historical interest, survivalist coinage or an affordable silver investment, these 90 percent silver half dollars are ideal!
This collection of “junk silver” includes the Kennedy Half Dollar, the Franklin Half Dollar, the Barber Half Dollar and the Walking Liberty Half Dollar. Each contains .715 troy ounces of pure silver and bears a face value of $1.
The recognizability, ease of division and high silver content make these pieces ideal for survival situations when a means of trade is required, and other collectors will appreciate having a piece of American history no longer available in circulation.
The Kennedy Half Dollar features President John F. Kennedy facing left on the obverse, with “LIBERTY” and the year around the rim, along with “IN GOD WE TRUST.” The reverse reads “UNITED STATES OF AMERICA” and “HALF DOLLAR” around the rim, and features the heraldic eagle from the Great Seal of the United States.
The Franklin Half Dollar highlights esteemed U.S. Founding Father Benjamin Franklin, staring off to the right, with the words “LIBERTY” and “IN GOD WE TRUST” emblazoned on the rim. The year is next to Franklin. The reverse reads “UNITED STATES OF AMERICA” and “HALF DOLLAR” and depicts the Liberty Bell, with “E Pluribus Unum” in small print to one side.
Walking Liberty is one of the most famous designs, with Liberty striding confidently toward the rising sun, the stars and stripes fluttering in the breeze, as she carries oak and laurel branches. The reverse is similarly beautiful, with an eagle on full display from his perch on a rocky outcropping, a mountain pine erupting from the rock and symbolizing America. The coin reads “LIBERTY” with the year and “In God We Trust” on the obverse, and “UNITED STATES OF AMERICA,” “HALF DOLLAR” and “E Pluribus Unum” on the reverse.
The Barber Half Dollar depicts the head of Lady Liberty, her hair tucked up and adorned with a wreath. The words “IN GOD WE TRUST” and the year line the rim. The reverse features the heraldic eagle, accompanied by the words “UNITED STATES OF AMERICA” and “HALF DOLLAR.”
Make an investment you’ll 100 percent enjoy with these fantastic 90 percent silver half dollars (designs our choice).

- SurpriseJasonon 4/28/14
OverallOrdered 2 quantities of these US Half Dollars and to my surprise, I received all KENNEDYs and 1 Walking Liberty!
Looking forward to ordering again hoping I get more variety - but I will not complain. Completely happy with Provident Metals and will recommend them with great reviews! Thanks again Provident - keep up the good work.
- PleasedMikeon 4/1/14
OverallI ordered $3 face expecting Kennedys. Maybe I'll get lucky and draw Franklins. Got 6 circulated Barbers. Nice surprise. Will order more with each delivery.
- Junk Silver is truly what the word meansHectoron 2/7/14
OverallI got my order today I order 1 dollar face value and got two junk 1964 Kennedy half dollars, I cant really complain I expect that circulated silver would be nasty to a degree due to it changing hands so it was bound to have scratches and dings but lord I got two coins which were so scratched up they were garbage and one looked like it was throw into a fire and allowed to cook overnight with the burn marks on it. will I ever order this again no, just because I understand they are junk but truly they were really bad and both Kennedy that looked like they went through hell and back. if you want silver order them thats why they get a three if you want something for a collection even knowing its circulated coinage dont buy these
- very happyTimothyon 1/25/14
OverallThis was my first order and was a little leery but to my surprise. I ordered 30$ face and received 9$ in franklins 5.50 in liberty's and the rest were 64 Kennedy's in which over half I would say were in BU condition.
- Nice coinsStephenon 1/19/14
OverallThis was my fourth order from Provident and I a quite happy. Got mostly '64 Kennedys but also a few Franklins and Walkers, as well as a Proof '82 Washington commemorative. All my future coins orders will be through Provident.
- My first order with ProvidentStephenon 10/18/13
OverallI just received my first order for $80.00 face value fifty cent pieces and could not be happier. My other supplier did not have ANY fifty cent pieces left and Provident not only had them but shipped them to me in 3 days! The mix of coins is perfect.
I am now a Provident customer full time.
- SatisfiedWilliamon 9/28/13
OverallI ordered $2 as part of my first order with Provident, and received one slightly dirty 1964 Kennedy and three Liberty Halves (1936D, 1940, 1945S) which is great! I will probably buy some more of these with my next order.
- Fair Mix w/ 1 Gold plated 1964 KennedyMichaelon 8/26/13
OverallReceived $15 FV mix of halves mostly Kennedy's and a couple of Franklin's. In good to very good condition.
Of consternation was a 1964 gold plated Kennedy. Didn't even know they existed. Called Customer service, he assured me it is a 90% and not a forgery... Still had to Google it.
All in all very happy with Provident.
- Great ProductMichaelon 7/12/13
OverallI received my first order of coins a few days ago, took about a week to get to me, I'm sure the 4th of July had something to do with that though. I ordered $2 face of Halves and $1 face of "junk silver" I received 4 1964 Kennedys and 4 Washington quarters with dates from 1945-1964. The coins were very well packaged, and in very good shape. I have since placed another order and will continue to do so, there aren't very many places you can order just a little silver and still justify shipping costs.
- $100 Silver Half Dollar; mixed?Jameson 4/19/13
OverallRec'd today, $99.50 worth of Kennedy's and one walking Liberty, all pretty much circulated coins. I know they said "their choice" but I doubt this would qualify as a mix of coins. This is my fourth order from Provident and was satisfied until this one. Still, silver coinage is silver.
- Very pleasedJayon 4/13/13
OverallOrdered $1 worth just to test the waters. Received a '38 and a '46. Both are in good condition and I will be ordering more. Provident is great and I'm glad I found them.
- Pretty niceurion 2/19/13
Overallordered $1 worth. received a walking liberty (can't make out the date) and a 1964 kennedy half. The kennedy half had some grime on it that I had to take off with my fingernail. Still, I thought I'd receive Franklin halfs if anything. This was a surprise. I'll likely be ordering this again. I just wish the walking liberty coin I had received wasn't so worn down.
- ExcellentGrohlon 1/10/13
OverallMy third order from Provident. I couldn't be happier with these halves.
- Exactly what I expected..Chadon 12/31/12
OverallReceived Franklins and all were in great condition. Very satisfied with Provident and their practices. Haven't let me down yet with any of my orders. Best shipping costs of anyone I have seen and I buy a lot! Will continue to buy from here and hope to get some Barber Halves in the future...thanks Provident !
- very pleased with the Franklinsmikeon 12/4/12
Overall$100 their choice, all came as Franklins which is great, conditon of many were cull but that is expected
- Best deal in the bizTravison 10/14/12
OverallAll of these coins are standard 90% silver half’s. I have read that most coin collectors can look back and agree that buying these coins straight up is much better than spending time searching for them which I agree with. I got many Franklins, Walking Libs and JFKs. This is my fourth order.
If buying with a check one must be patient but if buying with a card these things literally fly off the shelf. Kudos to Provident Metals for the best prices and best service I have seen since I started collecting in 2010. Please keep taking care of us and we will keep taking care of you.
- Nice MixJohnon 9/15/12
OverallI recently placed a small order of 'our choice' half dollars. Most were Franklin's, one Kennedy [great condition] a few Booker T. Washingtons, [showing some wear] and two Colombian American halfs I never knew existed. Overall I was satisfied along with the 5 Oz bar and Mexican Peso I purchased. As with my other orders, Provident had the best price for what I was looking for. Verey nicely wrapped/shipped. No one would know there were coins in the package the way it arrived.
- Awesome!TheNungon 7/15/12
OverallReceived my order 4 business days after I placed it. I ordered $5 in their choice of 90% coins, and another $5 in their choice of 90% half dollars. I also placed an order for the 1 oz Ron Paul coin.
Received 20 Washington quarters and 10 Franklin halves. The quarters were all between 1934 and 1964, with the majority of them being from the 40's and 50's. The Franklin halves ranged from 1949-1960, mostly from the 50's. The Ron Paul coin was absolutely beautiful, so I didn't mind paying the premium for it.
I'll definitely be ordering from Provident again. I appreciate that they gave me such a great selection despite it being a small order.
- Very PleasedLarryon 7/9/12

OverallI bought these for my sons, all 60 looked great, they were very happy..so I'm happy too! I will buy again soon.
- Half dollars are terrificRonon 5/19/12
OverallA friend at work and I split orders now and then to save on shipping costs. He prefers the half dollars, and I prefer the random 90% silver coins. Either way, we both win with Provident's accurate and timely service. They keep me updated with emails at each step in the order and shipment process. I highly recommend Provident for your silver and gold bullion coin orders.
- Very nice!Pistol Peteon 5/7/12

- First Orderchadon 4/11/12
OverallThis was my first order with Provident and won't be my last. Quick shipping (and cheaper than the place I used to deal with) and I received exactly what I ordered. All were 64 Kennedys and that's totally fine with me. The goal was to get 90% silver and that's what I got! Bye, Bye AP***
- AwesomeRon 4/4/12

Overallordered $5 face value. received
2 1964 JFKs
3 Walking liberties
I will be ordering more of these halves. It's fun to wait and see what I'll get.
- Good Deal !!!Joeon 10/5/11
OverallSilver spot fell from $40/oz to the $32 range I decided I better put in a
quick order of Silver on Sept 27, 2011.
I made a small order, got the Kennedy Halfs, got 1 super BU Kennedy,
and 1 that looks like it is a PROOF KENNEDY, all the rest of the
Kennedys were sharp looking, some had some lite tone, sharp
Kennedys with hardly any wear present. It is difficult to get 90% Silver
Halves any cheaper then what Provident sells them for.
In General a great deal for people who want "real" money of the past and
want to add to their Silver "real" money stack.
This was my first phone order, great service with John and shipping was
fast and promptly got to my hands. I will be ordering with Provident again !!!
- BeautifulSalon 9/30/11
