For the obverse we have a composite study of Franklin’s face in full profile. The study was prepared from a variety of portraits of Franklin. It is a slight modification of a Franklin profile used for a medal issued by the Mint in 1933. The reserve has The Liberty Bell as a commemoration for the Sesquicentennial of American Independence in 1926. The bell is suspended from its familiar wooden beam, with the time-honored crack in the bell discernible.

The Franklin Half Dollar was minted by the Philadelphia, Denver and  San Francisco Mint.
