Franklin Half Dollar Coin Values

U.S. Franklin Half Dollar value depends on the rarity of the date and mint and the fact they're 90% silver coins, but the real premium comes when they're uncirculated with Full Bell Lines (FBL). If you want to obtain top dollar for high graded FBL Franklin Halves then you will have to send them off to be certified and graded as such by PCGS or NGC. ANACS and ICG are your other two options but they don't bring the same premium as PCGS and NGC.

The values below for a 1953-S FBL is for coins certified by PCGS and NGC only, as are all the FBL values in the chart below, as an example. No coin will sell for such a premium when not certified.

The other aspect that effects the values fro Franklin Half Dollars is in the varieties and some of these can be pricy. So you should look for Doubled Die Reverses (DDR) and Doubled Die Obverses (DDO) as well as the Bugs Bugs Bunny variety and the different type reverses where the mint used a reverse proof die to strike business strike coins.

With that, most Franklin Halves sell as "junk" or bulk silver prices starting at $8-$9 and up to $12 for common, worn and low grade examples. Franklin Half Dollars are a good series to collect now as these prices do increase with time and as long as silver is up or goes up so does their values.
