Additional Info: 1970 was the final year for the 40% Silver Kennedy Half Dollars. The S or San Francisco mint issued 2.6 million proofs this year, and for some odd reason they sometimes sell for less than the regular coins for this year. This is a key date for this coin series.

Numismatic vs Intrinsic Value: This coin in poor condition is worth $2.62 less than the intrinsic value from silver content of $3.62, this coin is thus more valuable to a silver bug than to a coin collector. You will most likely find however that it is hard to get a coin for less than spot price. At least that has been our experience. Want more info?
