Buy Silver Half Dollars

Each silver half dollar coin from the United States Mint contains .3575 troy ounces of pure silver content and a face value of 50 cents. Silver Half Dollars are sold in both $10 Face Rolls and $100 Face Bags. The $10 Face Rolls contain 7.15 troy ounces of pure silver, and the $100 Face Bags have 71.5 troy ounces of pure silver. Half dollars are one of the most popular options for investing in junk silver ever since the Coinage Act of 1965, which marked the debasement of silver from the US Dollar and the introduction of a full fiat money in the country.

The interest of collectors is piqued by Barber half dollars since coins minted with the Barber design are over a century old. Barber halves are a great way to add to a junk silver portfolio but also add collectible coins to a silver stack as well. Although the price of these coins in the future cannot be exactly predicted, the supply of Barber half dollars is surely going to decline in the coming years, meaning the price of these will most likely be increasing in the future.

Walking Liberty half dollars were produced at the Philadelphia, San Francisco, and Denver Mints. The US Mint produced a total of 485 million Walking Liberty Half Dollars, with the most common year being 1943, when 77 million of these silver coins were struck.

The Franklin half dollar coins were only produced for 16 years but had a similar total mintage to the Walking Liberty Halves. There was a total of 465 million Franklin Halves made. The most common year for Franklin Halves is 1963, with 89 million of them minted that year. These silver halves were produced at the mints of Philadelphia, Denver, and San Francisco. The obverse of these silver half dollars will feature the profile of Benjamin Franklin with the date the coin was minted to his right.

The total mintage of these half dollars is surprisingly high at roughly 435 million, even though they were just struck using 90% silver content for one year in 1964. The Kennedy Half Dollar program was started two months after President Kennedy's assassination as a tribute to our 35th President. The program continued being minted using 40% silver from 1965 through 1970, and the coins continued to be minted until this day with a copper-nickel clad.

Every silver half dollar from the list above contains 90% of actual silver content. The majority of the 90% silver half dollars are going to be in circulated condition, so half dollars that are of higher quality are going to be sold for a higher premium. At SD Bullion, we sell silver halves in both circulated and higher quality conditions as well.

Silver half dollars were produced for a number of reasons. First, this was the standard at the time of the minting. Precious metals were used around the world at the time for regular currency. In addition to this, silver was the cheapest and easiest precious metal to mint into currency until the 1960s.

The silver half dollars in the United States have been minted in several different cities. You can tell where the coin was minted by the mint mark on the coin. If there is no mint mark, it was produced in Philadelphia. An O means that it was minted in New Orleans, an S means San Francisco, a D indicates Denver, and a CC is Carson City.

The production of silver half dollars in the United States started in the early 1790s. These pieces have a face value of $0.50; however, depending on the year the coin was minted, it may be worth much more than this. From 1790 to 1965 every single coin in the mint was made with 90% pure silver. From 1965 to 1970, this dropped to 40% silver. However, since 1970 the coins have been made without silver.

The coins were particularly popular in the first half of the 20th century. They were popular for gaming, as well as spending on consumer items. Over time, they have become less popular due to the rise of paper money and eventually the use of cards for all types of transactions.

In 1964, the half dollars were taken from circulation. This is because they had the Kennedy design, and they were pulled from circulation for sentimental reasons. On top of this, the pre-1960 coins were collected and kept, because of the amount of silver used. As the prices of silver continued going up, more of the silver half dollar coins started being hoarded.

In the 1960s, it became clearly evident that the silver half dollar was no longer going to be worth the cost of the silver. With the rising cost of silver, the coins became more expensive to produce than their face value. Because of this, the government decided to start minting the coins with a smaller silver percentage. This helped save money on the minting.

Silver half dollars that are from the pre-1965 era are hard to come by. This, combined with the fact that the pricing on these coins changes depending on the silver market, makes them valuable pieces. While you can find silver half dollars from after 1970 fairly easily, those with 90% or even 40% silver are rare. This is because many people over the years decided to hold onto them, due to the rising price of silver.

One of the most popular ways to invest in silver bullion coins is buying circulated US half dollars minted prior to 1965. These coins, along with Pre-1965 dimes and quarters, are commonly referred to as "junk" silver, or 90% silver. The term "junk" silver developed in the 1970s. Savvy people began pulling these coins from circulation and trading them at dollar values based on their silver content. Coin dealers applied the term to distinguish this circulated coinage with no collectible value from more collectible coins they wanted to sell at higher prices. Making the coin prices on "junk" silver more appealing to buyers more interested in the silver content, versus the condition of the coin.

Today these coins are widely traded by bullion dealers. They are very popular because they often cost less than other US bullion coins such as US Silver Eagles. Half dollars, which each contain .358 ounces of actual silver content, are also much smaller than the 1-ounce American Eagles. Preparedness minded investors consider official, recognizable US coins in smaller sizes ideal for use in barter. 90% US silver half dollars are anything but "junk", despite being referred to that way.

Silver Kennedy half dollars, the Franklin half dollar, and Liberty half dollars are the variety these half dollars come in and an excellent store of value. Americans buying gas in 1964 could have purchased 1.667 gallons of gasoline for fifty cents -- the face value of one of these coins. Today, these coins have a value which is still roughly equivalent to that amount of gas. The fiat dollar may buy dramatically less, but the purchasing power of silver has held up very well.

These coins are "honest" money. They have worked well to protect investors from the destruction of the fiat US dollar in the decades since politicians and central bankers abandoned the gold and silver standard that once underpinned our currency.

All US silver coins struck in 1964 or earlier were minted with 90% silver and 10% copper. Please note: the copper content of these rare coins is excluded from any calculation of pricing. Only the silver content is valued!

So what makes these silver coins a good investment? Each dollar of face value contains .715 ounces of actual silver content, so a full junk silver coin bag ($1,000 face value) contains 715 ounces of silver.

Pre-1965 half dollar silver coins are older and carry historical interest, but no additional premium is added to their price based on age , condition or collectible value. The coins are delivered unsorted, with any batch containing a variety of minting dates and coin conditions.

Secondly, like bullion rounds, this form of silver offers a low premium over the spot market price of silver. The market value of "junk silver" is often very close to the actual melt value of the coins. Investors can get more ounces of silver for whatever they plan to spend by choosing half dollars in favor of more expensive alternatives.

Silver half dollars are machine counted into bags when a client's order is released to be packed and shipped. Money Metals can accommodate orders starting as small as $5 face value (10 coins). Silver coin bags of dimes and quarters are available in addition to half dollars and are generally priced even lower. Making the cost and the coin values, a great choice for those looking to spend less, yet still obtain silver. Or a great choice for those coin collecting, because you're able to buy them in bulk, giving you a variety of dates.

The Mint made the first half dollar in 1794 of silver. The designs from 1794 to 1947 showed a woman symbolizing liberty on the obverse and an eagle on the reverse. 1947 was the last year that Liberty appeared on a U.S. circulating coin.
