President John F. Kennedy was an enormously popular figure and the first President to bring “celebrity” to the Oval Office. The youngest President ever elected was celebrated for advancing the Apollo Space Program and averting catastrophe during the 1962 Cuban Missile Crisis. Unfortunately, JFK’s life was abruptly cut short. Following his assassination in November 1963, JFK’s profile was mocked up and placed on the obverse of the redesigned Half Dollar with inscriptions LIBERTY, 1964, and IN GOD WE TRUST. The coin’s reverse features the iconic heraldic eagle affixed over the Presidential Seal, with inscriptions UNITED STATES OF AMERICA, E PLURIBUS UNUM, and HALF DOLLAR.
The Kennedy Half Dollars were minted from 90% pure silver in 1964 but converted to 40% silver following the passage of the Coinage Act of 1965. The 40% Kennedy Half Dollars were minted until 1971 when the US Mint finally converted to a more cost-effective Cupro-Nickel alloy.
In this lot, you will receive two (2) 40% Silver Kennedy Half Dollars dated between 1965 and 1970. Each $1 FV of 40% Silver Kennedy Half Dollars is equivalent to 0.1479 troy oz of pure silver. The coins will arrive in circulated condition and may exhibit signs of handling and wear.
