1964 US 50-Cent Kennedy Half Dollar 90% Silver Original Coin Roll

 

The United States Mint first produced the Kennedy half dollars in 1964 a few months after the assassination of President John F. Kennedy in Dallas, Texas. The nation was in mourning after the assassination of this popular president.

US Congress moved quickly to pass a law and eliminate the Franklin half dollar design and create a new 50-cent coin to commemorate President John F. Kennedy. 

1964 was the first and only year that the 50-cent Kennedy Half Dollar was minted in 90% silver.

The eagle holds an olive branch on its right talon and a bundle of thirteen arrows on its left, and in its beak a scroll with "E PLURIBUS UNUM". A circle of stars surrounds the eagle.
