In 1964, the United States Mint unveiled a new design for its half-dollar circulation coin in honor of President John F. Kennedy. Released into circulation within months of his assassination in Dallas, TX, on November 22, 1963, the designs on the coin were created by US Mint Sculptor-Engraver Gilroy Roberts and US Mint Sculptor-Engraver Frank Gasparro. In 2014, the US Mint honored the 50th anniversary of Kennedys half-dollar coins with a commemorative half-dollar gold coin.
