Product description
Product Information
The 1968 US Kennedy half dollar contains 40 percent silver, and 60 percent copper and nickel material. Although it contains only 40 percent silver, it is still considered a silver coin. This 1968 50-cent piece features former President John F. Kennedy facing to the left on the obverse side. Congress approved the production of this half dollar one month after President Kennedy's death, and Gilroy Roberts and Frank Gasparro created the design of this US Kennedy half dollar. Furthermore, the obverse side features the word "Liberty," the phrase "In God We Trust," and the year 1968. The reverse side of this 1968 50-cent piece depicts the presidential seal and the words "half dollar." If a mint mark is present on the silver coin, it will be located on the obverse side of this US Kennedy half dollar, just under the head of President Kennedy. This 1968 50-cent piece includes a weight of 11.5 g (0.15 oz), a reeded edge, and a diameter of 30.6 mm (1.2 inches).

High quality Kennedy Half Dollar, an underated silver coin at a great price

Yes, I would recommend this product to a friend.

The purchase of this coin was to add to my 1964-1970 MS and PF NGC Kennedy set. This coin is a very underated coin that can be purchased at a very affordable price, especially for a silver coin that can provide real wealth not just for the collector but for the investor.

Piece of American History.

Yes, I would recommend this product to a friend.

The Kennedy Half Dollars are piece of history. They replaced the Franklin Half Dollars after JFK was assassinated and they are just not that common in circulation.

A nice coin and nice way to invest without a large commitment.

Yes, I would recommend this product to a friend.

The lesser silver means more coin, less cost. It is a much nicer coin when struck in silver to commemorate JFK.
The nicer coins can be added to your collection while less attractive ones can be easily sold for their silver content when prices spike.
