How Many Face Cards Are There in a 52-card Deck?

There are 12 face cards in a deck of 52 cards. The cards with a king, queen, or jack on them are called face cards. There are four kings, four queens, and four jacks in a deck since there are four suits and one of each type of face card is contained in each of the four suits.

The red suits are hearts and diamonds, while the black suits are clubs and spades. There are 13 unique cards in each suit. Each suit also contains an ace and numbered cards from 2 through 10 in addition to the face cards. The ace can be ranked above or below the two or the king, depending on the card game and the circumstances.
