Benjamin Franklin's Philadelphia Post Earrings

- Sterling silver cast
- Gift boxed
Our Benjamin Franklin dangling earrings make a wonderful addition to a patriotic jewelry collection. Made from sterling silver casts of each side of the Franklin half-dollar, they are a stunning tribute to a fascinating Founding Father who lived an extraordinary life of many great accomplishments and helped shape our nation’s rich history.
The Franklin half dollar was produced by the United States Mint from 1948 to 1963. The fifty-cent piece features Founding Father Benjamin Franklin on the obverse and the Liberty Bell on the reverse. A eagle was placed to the right of the bell to fulfill the legal requirement that half dollars depict the bird of prey. Produced in 90 percent silver with a reeded edge, the coin was struck at the Philadelphia, Denver, and San Francisco mints.
