We are delighted to offer these $1,000 face value bags of Kennedy Half Dollars minted between 1965 and 1970. These U.S. silver coins contain approximately 295 ounces of pure silver and are extremely collectible. These coins are comprised of 40% silver and are in various degrees of condition.
Released in 1964, the revered Kennedy Half Dollar did not see much circulation time. It was in hot demand at the time of its release and snapped up by investors and collectors alike. The coins commemorate late President John F. Kennedy and depict his profile. The original 1964 coins were produced with 90% pure silver. In 1965, the mint began to produce coins with 40% silver. They also minted more of the Kennedy Half Dollars owing to their popularity. The coins were minted with 40% pure silver through 1970. In 1971 the mint removed pure silver from the composition of circulated coins.
These renowned coins reflect one of the most revered presidents of the twentieth century. Moreover, it was Jacqueline Kennedy who recommended the half dollar denomination when asked which coin she preferred as a commemoration of her late husband. Her reasoning for the half dollar was that she did not wish to remove George Washington from the quarter. Even so, the Kennedy Half Dollar has become a landmark coin and these $1000 face value bags contain a collection’s worth!
