The 1984-P Kennedy Half Dollar will be packaged in a coin flip for protection while in transit.John F. Kennedy served as the 35th President of the United States for two years before being assassinated in Texas. The most famous events Kennedy had to deal with, in his shortened term, was the Cuban Missile Crisis, the Bay of Pigs Invasion, the Nuclear Test Ban Treaty, the establishment of the Peace Corps, the building of the Berlin Wall, and the Civil Rights movement. Kennedy also made history by being the only Roman-Catholic to ever serve as president.

    Before President Kennedy was assassinated, the US Mint desired to have the president on either the dollar, half dollar, or quarter. Once the president passed, his widow Jacqueline Kennedy desired to have his portrait on the half dollar. Sculptors, Gilroy Roberts and Frank Gasparro, had already designed a special presidential medal that wasn't released yet when they were notified of the new half dollar. Using Robert's obverse design and Gasparro's reverse design of the medal, the new Kennedy Half was born. In 1964, the Philadelphia and Denver Mints produced millions of the half dollar, resulting in millions being hoarded by collectors or investors since it was the last year for the 90% silver coins. The US Mint struggled to produce more to meet the demand but the coins never made it to circulation.
