The Franklin Half Dollar was minted from 1948 to 1963 and arguably, would have gone on long had it not been for the assassination of President Kennedy and the change of the Half Dollar to his likeness in his honor. The Franklin Half was very popular with the American population and remains one of the more popular coins for collectors today.

In total, there were 4.028 million 1948-D Franklin’s produced, a relatively small number compared to the 15-25 million produced in the mid-1950s. That makes finding this particular coin in brilliant uncirculated a nice find.
