40% Silver Coins

As the price of Silver began to increase in the 1960s, the United States government began seeking a more cost-effective alternative to the minting of 90% Silver content coins. To honor assassinated President John F. Kennedy, the U.S. Mint began minting Silver Kennedy Half Dollars that were 40% Silver instead of 90% Silver.

Buy Kennedy Half Dollars Online

The 40% Silver Kennedy Half Dollar consists of an inner layer containing 79% copper and 21% Silver. This inner layer was clad by an outer layer of 20% copper and 80% Silver. Thus, rather than containing 90% Silver, the Kennedy Half Dollars contain 40% Silver and 60% copper. The 40% Silver Kennedy Half Dollars were the last regularly circulated coins from the U.S. Mint that still contain any Silver.

40% Eisenhower Dollar Coins

In addition to the Silver Kennedy Half Dollar, special editions of the Eisenhower Dollars were struck in 40% Silver from 1971-1976. These were more for collectors as they were not a part of the regular circulation strikes.
