Weighing twice as much as a quarter, and being the second largest coin being minted now, the United States half dollar like most US coins has a long history. Dating back to 1794 when the half dollar was first minted, it has been one of the nation’s favorite coins. The many different designs over the years include the Flowing Hair 1794–1795, Draped Bust 1796–1807, Capped Bust 1807–1839, Seated Liberty 1839–1891, Barber 1892–1915, Walking Liberty 1916–1947, Franklin 1948–1963, and the Kennedy 1964–present.
