Following his tragic assassination, numerous memorials for President John F. Kennedy were established throughout the United States. One of the more iconic tributes to the fallen president was the Kennedy Half Dollar, which was approved just one month after Kennedy’s death. The coin was first struck at the Denver and Philadelphia mints simultaneously on February 11, 1964. It was an instant hit upon its release as well, with all 70,000 initial pieces selling out on the first day.
