The 1976 Kennedy Bicentennial Half Dollar was actually released in both 1975 and 1976. However, the US Mint chose not to designate which year the individual coins were minted in. Instead, they all bear the dual dates of 1776-1976 to remind us of the 200th anniversary of the signing of the Declaration of Independence. Over 500 million of these coins were minted in total. Other Bicentennial releases included the Washington Quarter and the Eisenhower Half Dollar. The JFK was the first of the three to be issued when it was unveiled at a ceremony in Minneapolis on July 7, 1975.
