Celebrate the legacy of one of America's most beloved presidents with our 1964 90% Silver Kennedy Half Dollars, now available in $10 tubes with Brilliant Uncirculated (BU) grades. John F. Kennedy, the youngest president ever elected and the first Catholic to hold the office, left an indelible mark on American history. Honor his memory with these iconic half-dollars.

Product Highlights:

  • Each order includes a $10 tube of 1964 90% Silver Kennedy Half Dollars, featuring approximately 7.23 oz of 90% silver.
  • The coins represent the first year of issue for Kennedy Half Dollars, introduced in January 1964, just three months after President Kennedy's tragic assassination.
  • Each coin carries a face value of $.50 (USD), fully backed by the US government.
  • The obverse features a left-profile portrait of President John F. Kennedy, skillfully crafted by Gilroy Roberts. Engravings include "Liberty," "In God We Trust," and the year of issue.
  • The reverse showcases Frank Gasparro's modification of the Seal of the President of the United States, featuring a heraldic eagle with an olive branch and arrows. The banner in its beak reads "E Pluribus Unum."
  • All coins in the tube were struck in 1964 and contain 90% silver content, a distinction from subsequent releases with 40% silver.
  • Minting locations may vary, with Philadelphia-minted coins being unmarked and Denver-minted coins featuring a D mintmark on the reverse side.

Designed in the aftermath of President Kennedy's assassination, these coins hold historical significance as they replaced the existing Benjamin Franklin Half Dollars. The quick turnaround and production were made possible by the dedication of US Mint sculptors Gilroy Roberts and Frank Gasparro, resulting in a lasting tribute to the late president.

Your $10 tube may contain coins with or without mintmarks, offering a glimpse into the minting variations of that year. Despite minor flaws such as breaks in the luster, spotted surfaces, or contact marks, each coin in this tube boasts a Brilliant Uncirculated grade, ensuring a pristine addition to your collection. Capture the spirit of a pivotal moment in American history with our 1964 90% Silver Kennedy Half Dollars.
