About Franklin Halves Early American coinage depicted figures from symbolism and allegory, like Lady Liberty for example. In 1948, American coinage faced a significant change when coins started depicting actual Americans instead.
The artistic ##x201C;golden era##x201D; had come to an end as history replaced imagery at the US Mint. This change begun with the introduction of the Franklin Half Dollar. Despite their popularity, these coins had a short production run due to the decision by Congress in late 1963 to issue a new half dollar to memorialize the martyred president.
