1964 Kennedy Half Dollar history

The Kennedy Half Dollar was first minted in 1964, months after President Kennedy was assassinated. The American nation was in mourning, and it was decided that the Franklin half dollar should be redesigned to create a coin in remembrance to the fallen president. The coin was designed by Gilroy Roberts, a portrait of J.F Kennedy on the obverse. The coin's reverse was designed by Frank Gasparro and featured a heraldic eagle, which was based on the Great Seal of the United States. The coin's diameter is 30.6 mm, and it has a reeded edge.

In 1964, the Kennedy half dollar was struck using 90% silver and 10% copper. The percentage of silver used in the coins decreased in the following years due to an increase in silver prices, which caused the public to hoard the coins rather than spend them. In 1964, 156,205,446 coins were minted at the Denver mint. This was a high number compared with what would be minted in the following years.
