Kennedy/JFK Half Dollar

Kennedy Half Dollar

The Kennedy Half Dollar was created as a memorial to the President John F. Kennedy who was assassinated in 1963 and is still being minted to this day.

The original 1964 version was minted in 90% silver, the 1965-1970 versions were only 40% silver (note silver coins from 1970 can only be found in silver proof sets and similar as the government never released them into actual circulation). The coins from 1971 and up are not silver but are a good looking coin nonetheless.

The coin was designed by Frank Gasparro, the front has JFK's Picture while the rear has the presidential seal.
