In 1955, the spotlight was on Error coins, and collectors were checking their change. So when the unusual “Bugs Bunny” half dollar error was discovered about a year later, it only created more excitement. Now you can add this popular 1955 Franklin variety to your own collection!
Due to an abundance of earlier half dollars, the U.S. Mint didn’t release the ’55 Franklins until the summer of 1956. And with collectors already looking for errors, the Bugs Bunny variety was soon spotted.
Called a die clash, this error occurred when the obverse and reverse dies hit each other without a planchet in between. The clash impressed design details from the reverse into Franklin’s lips, creating what appears to be fang-like buck teeth – hence, the nickname Bugs Bunny. Not only is this the best known of the Franklin errors, but it’s from 1955, a date that has the second lowest mintage in the series! Still affordable over 60 years later. Your coin comes encapsulated in a FREE display case. This is a must for any collection – get yours now!
