The Kennedy half dollar, first minted in 1964, is a fifty-cent coin currently issued by the United States Mint. Intended as a memorial to the assassinated President John F. Kennedy, it was authorized by Congress just over a month after his death. In 1971, silver was eliminated entirely from the coins. A special design for the reverse of the half dollar was issued for the United States Bicentennial and was struck in 1975 and 1976. In addition to business strikes,
special collector coins were struck for the Bicentennial in silver
clad; silver proof sets in which the dime, quarter and half dollar were
struck in 90% silver were first minted in 1992. We carry Uncirculated and Proof Kennedy Half Dollars in Philadelphia and Denver Sets, San Francisco Proof Singles, or in 20 Coin Rolls.
