    The Kennedy Half Dollar series carries loads of history for any collectors to appreciate through the years. This series is also ideal for beginner collectors, providing low premiums coins for any budget.Gilroy Roberts and Frank Gasparro were the sculptors who had the honor of designing the Kennedy Half Dollar. Needing a design quickly, the US Mint approved of a design the two had created for a presidential medal that was liked by the late president. His widow, Jacqueline Kennedy, wanted his portrait to be on the half dollar denomination. In just one short month, a new half dollar was being minted by the millions, and the public was ready for it. The reverse depicts a portrait of the late president, with the coin's date of mintage. The reverse contains the US National Seal and the coin's 50 cent denomination.

    The 1971-D Kennedy Half was minted by the Denver Mint, while the rest were proofs minted at the San Francisco Mint. The 1971-D Kennedy Half Dollar is in brilliant uncirculated condition, exhibiting an unbroken sheen rim to rim. The Denver Mint produced over 305 million half dollars in 1971, lending to low premiums and easy accessibility for the series. John F. Kennedy is the famous president, who was assassinated in November of 1963. But Kennedy has a footprint in history outside of his death. During his 2 year term, Kennedy constantly dealt with high tensions between communism and the US. Kennedy is still the only Roman Catholic to ever serve as president in the US.
