Default 1952 Half Dollar

A friend gave me this today. I have never seen this type of half dollar ever. Does anyone know if they were ever in circulation? I am guessing it is silver, but it's kinda neat regardless.

Default non circulated

This half was never introduced into circulation. It is a commemorative coin with a legal tender of 50cent. There are hundreds of different half dollars. Hope tho helps

Found this for you, https://www.ngccoin.com/coin-explore...s-coinid-19434

Yours looks to maybe be a little circulated so may in the lower categories for value. There are members that know a lot more than me that will chime in I'm sure. I only mess with pennies and pocket change from time to time. See, hahaha, while I was typing they jumped in.

Thanks for the info guys! I am somewhat ignorant when it comes to the issue of circulation. Can coins that were never introduced to circulation be used for purchases? Not that I would but just wanted to know.

Sure, simply take the 1970 Kennedy half dollar, for example. It was minted NIFC, or 'not intended for circulation', just like your commemorative 50c piece. The 1970 looks just like a regular Kennedy circulated Kennedy half, but was minted for collectors. It is somewhat rare, but I have found a 1970D and S among circulated Kennedy halves.
