|Add one more to your enviable collection of the formerly used currencies by getting the 1964, Kennedy Half Dollar home. Struck just two months after the unprecedented assassination of the 35th president of America, this silver coin was marked as a tribute to John F. Kennedy. Initially composed of 90 percent silver and 10 percent copper, this Kennedy Half Dollar has undergone composition changes due to rising silver prizes. First minted in early 1964, the 1964, Kennedy Half Dollar came as a replacement to the Franklin Half Dollar. The obverse image of this silver coin that depicted Kennedy was designed by Chief Engraver Gilroy Roberts, while the reverse image of the coin has Eagle holding an olive branch (peace) and arrows along (strength), was designed by Frank Gasparro. Although this Kennedy Half Dollar entered in commerce in 1964, it did not do the round immediately because of the collectors’ hoarders who kept it for its silver content and as a memento of the slain patriot. The Kennedy Half Dollar, now an integral part of the American currency system underwent various changes over the years.|
