Franklin Half Dollars

Franklin Half Dollars
Nellie Taylor Ross, director of the mint, in 1947 had the chief engraver John R. Sinnock design a new half dollar. Ross admired Franklin and wanted to have him portrayed on a coin. Franklin himself did not want portraits on coins, but rather he preferred to have sayings on coins tthat would be a benefit to the holder. He would have been a little upset had he known his likeness would be used for a coin. But Nellie got her way and the coin was produced from 1948 until 1963.
