Be debonair, carry a money clip. Show your gentlemanly social graces by securing your currency with a coin money clip. The Silver Franklin Half Dollar was minted from 1948 to 1963. When it was issued in 1948, Benjamin Franklin became the first person other than a president to be immortalized on a circulating U.S. coin. Even the Liberty Bell on the reverse is a “first”— all previous silver coins featured large stylized eagles (To comply with a requirement to include the national bird, a miniature eagle is adjacent to the bell). This half dollar is then lavishly layered in pure 24k Gold. The coin is secure in a screw top bezel. The screw top allows the coin to be removed and replaced safely and at any time by a professional jeweler. The 1 7/8 inch silver tone money clip has a high polished finish that looks great with any attire. A Certificate of Authenticity is included.
