Succeeding the Franklin half dollar, the Kennedy half dollar was first issued in 1964, the year following the assassination of John F. Kennedy, one of our most beloved presidents.
The coin’s obverse was designed by US Mint Sculptor-Engraver Gilroy Roberts and features a portrait of America’s youngest-ever-elected president, John Fitzgerald Kennedy.
On the coin’s reverse is a design based on the presidential seal by Frank Gasparro. It depicts a heraldic eagle grasping an olive branch in one talon and a bundle of 13 arrows in the other. Surrounding this design are 50 stars representing each state.
The proof versions of this coin were struck 90% silver at the San Francisco mint facility with special, highly polished dies and have an immediately recognizable mirror-like finish.
