In this post we are going to talk about a 1966 silver Kennedy half dollar (US 50 cent piece) coin. We have pictures of it below and you will notice that is in superb condition, definitely uncirculated and perhaps MS 63 (or better). On its obverse is John Fitzgerald Kennedy, 35th President of the United States of America, founder of the Peace Corps and author of Pulitzer Prize winning book Profiles in Courage. The back side of this coin has the Great Seal of the USA. It is forty percent silver in its content and contains exactly .1479 ounces or 4.6002 grams of the precious metal. This coin was struck in Philadelphia where 108.98 million were produced in that particular year. Email us at butikmewah@gmail for additional questions on it or if you are interested in purchasing it.
The US half dollar coin has a long history going way back to the year 1794. They have featured various designs including several variations on Lady Liberty as well as Benjamin Franklin and JFK. Silver was discontinued in them (circulated coins) starting in 1971.
