History: The US Mint produced the first Kennedy half dollars in 1964, just a few months after the assassination of President Kennedy. The whole nation was in mourning and Congress quickly passed a law to end production of the Franklin half dollar and replace it with a new coin to commemorate the life of Kennedy. Gilroy Roberts designed the obverse of the coin which features an image of Kennedy and Frank Gasparro created the American eagle on the reverse. The designs used were modified versions of those already created for use on the Presidential medal. President Kennedy had already approved the medal design before his death. The coin is still minted in the present day but it is now struck from copper and nickel. The 1964 Kennedy half dollar was minted in San Francisco, Denver, and Philadelphia.
