Stock up on silver with a roll of historic 1964 Kennedy Half Dollars. 1964 was the first year these coins were issued and it’s the only year that they were minted from 90% silver. This is the key year to own from the Kennedy series. Every coin is in brilliant uncirculated condition, sealed in air-tight rolls for protection and posterity. Each roll contains 10 coins from the Philadelphia mint and 10 coins from the Denver mint.
The Kennedy Half Dollar was struck in 1964 as a tribute to President John F. Kennedy following his assassination in Dallas, Texas, on November 22, 1963. Coin collectors and ordinary citizens alike stood in line to acquire these hugely popular coins that so beautifully captured his optimism and humanity. The obverse features a portrait of Kennedy by Gilroy Roberts. This portrait was first used on Kennedy’s official presidential medal that was issued by the U.S. Mint. The design was personally approved by his widow, Jacqueline Kennedy, and his brother, Robert F. Kennedy. The reverse depicts the Presidential seal by Frank Gasparro.
These vintage American coins are nearly impossible to find in everyday circulation. By 1970, the price of silver was so high that the only 90% silver Kennedy Half Dollars still available were in U.S. Mint collector sets. Don’t miss this opportunity to own what is arguably the most popular American coin in the world.
