I'm inclined to agree with Condor101 on the reason for the Half Cent being made. It was for the common folk to be able to have a spendable coin in the pocket for things like food or small supplies.

Most stores people had an account they charged good against and paid off each month or week, little purchases were made by children in cash like Half Cents for candy.
