APMEX offers a superb selection of Kennedy Half Dollars.
As 1963 drew to a close, there was a strong public outcry for a coin to honor our martyred President. Congress authorized the US Mint to issue a half dollar coin bearing President Kennedy's likeness, and thus, the Kennedy Half Dollar was born. Chief Engraver Gilroy Roberts designed a coin with a bust of John Kennedy on the obverse and the presidential coat of arms on the reverse. Since its debut in 1964, Kennedy Halves have been a favorite among collectors. These coins are a cherished keepsake not only for Americans, but also for the late President’s foreign admirers.
