Crafted in gleaming gold, the JFK Half Dollar isn't just a coin, it's a tangible piece of American history. Minted since 1964 to honor the beloved President John F. Kennedy, this commemorative treasure continues to captivate collectors and history buffs alike.
Under existing law, U.S. coin designs could not be changed more often than every 25 years; the Franklin half dollar was then only 15 years old, and its replacement would quite literally require an act of congress. Partisan disputes were largely set aside in recognition of the nation's and the world's loss, and congress managed to pass legislation permitting a change in the half dollar's design with only a few weeks' debate
On one side, a stoic John F. Kennedy gazes out, his likeness captured with exquisite detail by the masterful duo of Gilroy Roberts and Frank Gasparro. Flip the coin, and you'll encounter the American presidential coat of arms, a powerful symbol of unity and resilience. Each element, from the soaring eagle to the delicate olive branches, is rendered with precision and grace, making this coin a true work of art.
More than just a conversation starter, the JFK Gold Half Dollar is an heirloom to be cherished for generations.

With its rich history and stunning design, the JFK Gold Half Dollar is sure to become a prized possession.
