Never seen a half-dollar coin. It has never occurred to me whether there are half-dollar coins in America until my cousin, a would-be magician, asked me about it and told me there actually were.

Half-dollar coin has been produced nearly every year since the inception of the United States Mint in 1794. However, its circulation was obviously very restricted, in casinos and movie theatres in old days but nowhere nowadays. Only the Kennedy halves were hoarded for sentimental reasons.

Besides that reason, halves are commonly used by Sleight-of-hand magicians who specialize in coin magic because of its size and weight.

It is understandable why my cousin needs it and why I cannot find it anywhere. Now it turned out to be a tough task for me to find 15 half-dollar coins for my magician cousin.

Is there anyone who can tell me how I can find half-dollar coins?
