The Kennedy half dollar, first minted in 1964, is a currently struck fifty cent coin issued by the United States Mint. It is still minted today in the same design. Since the coin is direct from a bank roll or bag, it shows much more detail because it has minimal circulation. About the coin design. It’s final coin design was hastily created and approved by Congress within just a month after JFK’s assassination, and first struck in 1964 of 90% silver. In 1965, the coin’s composition changed to a 40% overall silver-clad composition, then once again in 1971 to the current cupro-nickel composition with a copper core and nickel outer surface. This coin offered here is made with the modern cupro-nickel half dollar minted after 1970. With the coin’s reverse image showcasing the bald eagle, hightlighted in 24k gold. The coin’s reverse design is a modified Presidential Seal, emblazoned with a majestic bald eagle — olive branches in her right talons (representing peace), and arrows in her left (representing strength). Her beak grasps a tail of a banner reading E PLURIBUS UNUM. The eagle is encircled by 50 five-point stars completely encircling the full 360-degree area around the central design. The inner circumference reads, “UNITED STATES OF AMERICA, ” at the top half of the coin, with “HALF DOLLAR” on the bottom hemisphere. About the coin finish. As pictured, the eagle, banner, olive branch, and arrows are precision dual gold & silver plated creating a handsome contrast of both gold and silver. The coin artist accents the eagle image in gold and sliver by first plating the entire coin in gold, then selectively allows the coins image around the bald eagle to plate in silver. The final finished coin is then encapsulated in a Lexcote-type hard plastic surface capsule (to protect the plating). This is a stunning piece, and guaranteed to look better in your hands, than I can show on a computer screen. Item ships in a velvety gift box, ready to wrap (or even stocking stuff) for gift giving.
