Half dollars have never been made out of pure silver but all half dollars minted before 1965 are 90% silver, halves dated 1965-1970 are 40% silver. Circulation issue halves dated 1971 and later are copper nickel and thus worth 50 cents. The US still makes commemorative half dollars such as the 90% silver proof half dollars made from 1992-present.
Yes. US dimes, quarters, and half dollars dated 1964 and earlier, as well as silver dollars dated 1935 and earlier, are made of an alloy of 90% silver and 10% copper. A 90% silver quarter contains about 0.18 of a troy ounce of silver, and its value as scrap metal will change along with precious metal prices.
For circulated half-dollars, ones dated 1964 are 90% silver and worth about $15.50 in silver value. Half-dollars dated 1965-1970 are 40% silver and worth about $6 in silver value. Circulated examples of 1971 and later half dollars are only worth 50 cents. Coins in mint sets that are uncirculated or proof may bring a premium to collectors but in general there is low collector demand for Kennedy half dollars outside of their bullion value.
US dimes, quarters, and half dollars dated 1964 and earlier are made of 90% silver and 10% copper. The same ratio is in dollar coins dated 1935 and earlier.

Any other date or denomination is either cupronickel or brass ($1 coins only, in brass).
