Do WMATA (DC/Maryland SmartTrip-equipped) buses take half-dollar coins?

I'm wondering if the on-bus machine where you insert coins to pay for bus fare (if you don't have a SmartTrip card) take Kennedy half-dollar coins. Do they fit in the slot? Are they read?
I put money on my SmartTrip card but it won't be loaded until some time after I touch it a fare machine, so I need to scrape together coin fare; since I only have enough coin fare around the house by using half-dollar coins, I'm wondering whether I can use those or whether I need to make the two-mile walk to the bank. Thank you!
