As of 2014, the value of a half dollar coin minted between 1822 to 1922 ranges between $30 to over $1,000 based on its condition, year, mint mark and variety. Consult a coin collection publication or organization to get an exact value. Coins from early years are usually worth more.
Collectors grade the condition of a coin on a scale of good, fine, extremely fine and uncirculated, with uncirculated coins worth the most. Coins minted at smaller mint facilities, such as Carson City, New Orleans and Denver, typically carry a higher value than those minted in Philadelphia and San Francisco.
