Description
The $1 Face Value (FV) 40% Silver Kennedy Half Dollars represents a significant chapter in U.S. coinage, marking a period of change in the metal content of American coins. Minted from 1965 to 1969, these Kennedy half dollars contain 40% silver, translating to an Actual Silver Weight (ASW) of approximately 0.295 troy ounces for every dollar of face value. The decision to reduce the silver content from the previous 90% was a response to rising silver prices and coin hoarding. On the obverse of each coin is a portrait of President John F. Kennedy, a tribute to his legacy following his assassination in 1963. The reverse showcases the Presidential Seal, emphasizing the coin's commemorative nature. When collectors and investors purchase this offering, they will receive two of these half dollars, summing up to the specified face value, and connecting them to a poignant period in American history.
