  • Description:

    The 90% Silver Kennedy Halves are among the most popular 90% silver we sell. There 1,000 Kennedy Halves in this bag and all are in circulated condition, which ranges from good condition and goes up. All halves should also have readable dates and mint-marks, which are both mixed. The 90% Silver Kennedy Halves are becoming increasingly difficult to find, since the demand has gotten higher with the 50th anniversary of Kennedy's assassination.

    Just one month after the assassination of John F. Kennedy, the US Mint quickly released the new half dollar. Replacing the Franklin Half Dollar, the new Kennedy Half Dollar's design was already an existed work by sculptors, Gilroy Roberts and Frank Gasparro. By already having a prominent design at hand, the Philadelphia Mint was able to produce over 273 million brilliant uncirculated coins in 30 short days. Upon their release in March of 1964, almost the entire collection disappeared from the market. Collectors rushed to hoard thousands of these historical gems, while others wanted them for their 90% silver content. Then, there were those Kennedy fans, who just wanted something to remember the late president by. The Mint even drastically increased production but were unsuccessful in giving others the ability to enjoy the new half dollar. 1964 was also the last year of the US Mint using 90% silver in their coins and changing the metal to 40% so this also could have affected the public's intense reaction to hoarding them.
