Notes: 1964 was the first and only year that the Kennedy Half Dollar was minted in 90% silver. This coin was minted after his assassination, and some of the 1964 proofs have the Accented Hair. Kennedys wife requested the changes be made so that his hair would look better. Those are valued at between $100 and $900 depending on the condition and the market. Key date. High value listed would be for a coin in perfect condition, certified, and never having seen circulation.

How much is a 1964 Kennedy Half Dollar worth?

In Average Circulated (AC) condition it's worth around $10.00, one in certified mint state (MS+) condition could bring as much as $20 at auction. This price does not reference any standard coin grading scale. So when we say Average Circulated, we mean in a similar condition to other coins circulated in 1964, and mint state meaning it is certified MS+ by one of the top coin grading companies. *** [?].
