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 was only the president for a short time but his legacy lives on even more than 50 years later.

    Sculptors, Gilroy Roberts and Frank Gasparro, were approached since they had previously designed a coin of President Kennedy for a medal. When John F. Kennedy was assassinated, within hours, the US Mint had a plan to produce the next half dollar with his portrait on the obverse. This design was even approved by the late president so there were no hesitations when it came to completing the die for the half dollar. Robert's obverse design and Gasparro's reverse design worked together to make the Kennedy Half Dollar. Not only was the design popular, but the Mint couldn't make enough to stay in circulation. As the Kennedy Half Dollar continued to be minted, it's numismatic and intrinsic values began to slowly strip away. Apart from a few Kennedy halves, that carry higher premiums, the series is ideal for a beginner collector. New Kennedy halves are still being minted today and is something collectors look forward to on a yearly basis.
