1963-D Denver Franklin Silver Half Dollar. At the time of issue in 1963, no one had any inkling that the Franklin halves produced by the Denver Mint would be the last in the popular series. But in late November of that year, John F. Kennedy was assassinated and the Franklin series was discontinued in favor of a new half dollar that honored the fallen President. Superb Brilliant Uncirculated quality.
1950-1959 Washington Silver Quarter. Issued when U.S. quarters still contained 90% precious silver, our 1950s specimens still remain in lustrous mintstate quality although struck more than six decades ago. Today almost three billion quarters are output annually and those issues still feature the bust of George Washington that appeared in 1932. Our Brilliant Uncirculated quality features crisp detail and excellent luster. Our choice of date and mintmark.
1959 Philadelphia Roosevelt Silver Dime. The U.S. Mint last issued 90% silver coins for circulation in 1964 and in subsequent years, the precious metal was reduced or replaced entirely. These days, 90% silver Roosevelt dimes are rarely found in pocket change due to their double dynamic of silver and numismatic value. Just 85 million 1959 Roosevelt silver dimes were struck by Philadelphia which was only about half of Denver's output. Never having circulated, our petite specimens are still as beautiful as the day they left the principal mint.
