This question comes up fairly often and is a common misunderstanding. What you almost certainly have is a HALF dollar (check the back!!) that carries the same front-side design as modern 1 oz bullion coins issued since 1986.

Those half dollar coins are called Walking Liberty halves and they don't contain 1 oz of silver. They were ordinary circulation coins meant for spending. There's more information at the Related Question.
