History: The Kennedy half dollar entered circulation quite quickly after President John F. Kennedy was assassinated on November 22, 1963. In fact, discussions about such a commemorative coin started the same day, and the bill that officially authorized the minting of the coin passed Congress before the year was out. The half-dollar denomination was chosen by Kennedy's widow, First Lady Jacqueline Kennedy.


The coin's first strike came on February 11, 1964, with the coins entering public circulation a few weeks later on March 24. However, many of the Kennedy half dollars immediately fell out of circulation due to collectors and mourners saving them as souvenirs; the Treasury Department sold its entire stock of 70,000 coins on the first day.


There were approximately 273 million Kennedy half dollars minted in the coin's first year, all of which were 90% silver and 10% copper. From 1965 to 1970, the composition switched to 40% silver and 60% copper, after which most such coins switched to a copper and nickel mix.


Due to the coin's extreme popularity, half dollars that were released between 1965 and 1967 did not contain a mint mark, and some 1965 and 1966 coins were intentionally mislabeled as being from 1964, as the Mint hoped the approach would reduce hoarding. The United States Mint produced about 295 million 1967 Kennedy half dollar coins in total, the highest mintage of all such Kennedy half dollars from 1965 to 1970. Today, the United States Mint continues to produce smaller sets of the Kennedy half dollar for the modern collectors' market.
