The Kennedy Half Dollar is a Fifty Cent US Coin and was first minted in 1964. It was put into place rather quickly after the assassination of John F. Kennedy on November 22, 1963 to replace the popular Benjamin Franklin Half Dollar. Many of the earlier coins were hoarded by collectors as momentos of JFK, then the rising price of silver caused many of them to be melted for their silver content. The obverse of the coin depicts a bust of John F. Kennedy with the words Liberty and In God We Trust and was designed by Gilroy Roberts. The reverse is an eagle with a shield and the words United States of America and Half Dollar and was designed by Frank Gasparro. The coins were originally 90% Silver, but in 1965, began to be produced with only 40% Silver and in 1971 Silver was entirely eliminated.
A silver U.S. Franklin half dollar from 1963. These coins are in Mint State Brilliant Uncirculated condition, with no wear and strong luster. The obverse side of the coin features a portrait of Benjamin Franklin, notable eccentric and Founding Father. The reverse side of the coin features the Liberty Bell. The Franklin half dollar series was the successor of the Walking Liberty half dollar series and the predecessor of the Kennedy half dollar series. The coin was the brainchild of U.S. Mint director Nellie Ross, an admirer of Franklin, who felt a replacement was needed for the "outdated" Walking Liberty design (first minted in 1916). After the first draft of the Franklin half design was completed, the Mint realized that a law from 1873 dictated that all coins of higher value than a dime must feature an eagle within their design. Rather than abandoning the Liberty Bell reverse, the Mint decided to insert a small eagle to the right of the bell. As some historians noted, Franklin himself would have disapproved of the coin, as he opposed featuring portraits of men on the first American coins and instead favored coin designs featuring thought-inspiring proverbs. Each coin measures 30.6mm in diameter, weighs 12.5g, and is made of .900 fine silver
