The Franklin Half Dollar was a relatively short U.S. coin series, bring minted for only 16 years.  The assassination of John Kennedy on Nov 22, 1963 caused congress to act very quickly to revise the half dollar in 1964 to honor the fallen president.

  1. The scale of the chart is limited to 25,000,000 coins to allow the lowest quantity issues to be displayed, while accurately charting most other issues. The Franklin Half Dollar production in Denver exceeded the chart limit in 1962 and 1963:
  2. 1962 (D) = 35,473,281
  3. 1963 (D) = 67,069,292
