The half dollar is one of the more intriguing coins produced by the U.S. Mint — and also one of the scarcest. While half-dollars are still minted today, they do not enter circulation — they're reserved strictly for special-edition coin sets and other numismatic products. What also distinguishes half-dollars from other coins is their size. A JFK 50-cent piece, for example, measures an impressive 30.6 mm in diameter and weighs 12.5 g. It's not hard to tell when you have a half-dollar in your hand!
There have been approximately nine incarnations of the silver half-dollar over the past 200+ years in the United States, many of which have become favorite collector's items. The earliest version was the so-called "Flowing Hair" half-dollar that was minted from 1794 to 1795 and featured a design based on the Spanish dollar that was a popular trading currency at the time. More recently, half-dollars have displayed the likeness of John F. Kennedy, our 35th president who was assassinated in Dallas in 1963. The first JFK half-dollars were minted in 1964, shortly after his death. Since 1992, the U.S. Mint has issued a JFK 50-cent piece composed of 90% silver and 10% copper.
The Liberty Half-Dollar: Minted During One of the Most Pivotal Eras in American History
The Walking Liberty Half-Dollar was another 50-cent piece that played a prominent role in our nation's history, introduced in 1916 and minted until 1947. Designed by Adolph A. Weinman, the coin featured a stylistic and strong Miss Liberty with an American flag draped across her shoulders, striding toward the sun as it rises on a new day. This powerful image served as inspiration during the tumultuous times during which the coins were issued, which included World War I, the Great Depression, and World War II. Today, 100 years after this magnificent coin was introduced, they are among the most collected coins in the world because of their historical significance and their high silver content.
Purchase Your Liberty Half-Dollar From American Mint
Although not classified as "rare," Walking Liberty half-dollars are not always easy to find today. However, they are still a prime target of serious numismatists and casual collectors alike. These coins are minted in .900 pure silver and the current precious metal market has caused the cost of these coins to rise. American Mint has been able to acquire a limited supply of 1943 Walking Liberty Half-Dollars. This Liberty half-dollar features the classic Weinman obverse design that bears a striking resemblance to the one created by Oscar Roty for earlier French coins. The coin's reverse portrays a proud eagle, the enduring symbol of American freedom and independence.
Exploring the 1943 Walking Liberty Half-Dollar Value
Many people purchase coins hoping that their value will increase over time. Our 1943 Liberty Half-Dollars are in "fine" condition, which means they exhibit "medium" wear. While they might not be as valuable as uncirculated pieces, they're still highly coveted collector's items. Of course, there are also intangible benefits that come with owning such a unique piece, particularly the thrill that comes from viewing it and showing it off to visitors — and fellow coin collectors!
