Frequently Asked Questions

Answers to popular questions: Explore our FAQ Section.
What is a United States Half Dime?
The United States Half Dime is a small coin with a face value of five cents. It was minted from 1794 to 1873. The Half Dime is unique because it was not minted from nickel, as the modern five-cent piece or "nickel" is, but from silver.
What are the different designs of the United States Half Dime?
Over its nearly 80 years of production, the Half Dime went through several design changes. The four main designs are: Flowing Hair (1794-1795), Draped Bust (1796-1805), Capped Bust (1829-1837) and Seated Liberty (1837-1873). Each design represents a different period in U.S. history and minting technology
How much is a United States Half Dime worth today?
The value of a Half Dime can vary significantly depending on factors such as its age, rarity, design, mint mark, and condition. For example, a Half Dime in good condition from the early Flowing Hair period may be worth several thousand dollars. On the other hand, a Seated Liberty Half Dime from the later years might be worth only a few dollars if it's in poor condition. For a precise valuation, a professional coin grading service should be consulted.
