Half dollar may refer to a half-unit of several currencies that are named "dollar". Normally, $1 is divided into 100 cents, so a half dollar is equal to 50 cents. Coins and/or banknotes of that amount are as such denominated at a value of 50 cents.
As of 2013[update] the face on the front of the United States half dollar is that of former President, John F. Kennedy. The Half Dollar currently is not commonly used in circulation anymore, the government now mints this coin mainly for collectors.
