With so many accomplishments, it is no surprise that Mint Director Nellie Tayloe Ross’ goal was to place Benjamin Franklin on a U.S. coin. Ross had to make a decision between replacing the Walking Liberty on the half dollar or replacing Abraham Lincoln on the penny. She decided that Franklin would be placed on the half dollar so as to not dishonor Prefsident Lincoln. The 90% silver Franklin Half Dollar began production in 1948 and continued to be minted until 1963.
