When we think about the graduation ceremony as we know it today, much of the traditional elements can be traced back to the University of Oxford, which held the first baccalaureate ceremony in 1432. However, one aspect has definitely changed. Back then, each graduating student was required to give a speech in Latin. That tradition has been abandoned, replaced by what we now call the Commencement Address. This is a speech given by a notable figure who is meant to provide words of wisdom to the graduating class as they embark on the next adventure in their lives.
These Graduation JFK Half Dollars have been produced using state-of-the-art techniques by the Merrick Mint. Each coin is a genuine JFK Half Dollar that has received a beautiful graduation-themed colorized enhancement on the front side. With each purchase, you will also receive a protective acrylic capsule and a Certificate of Authenticity. Also included is a special card with a space to write a note.
The obverse of Congratulations On Your Graduation Half Dollars depicts a fully colorized design over the original JFK portrait. The background is a rich shade of blue, and in the center, there is a graduation cap and diploma scroll. Around the edges are the words Congratulations on Your Graduation.
On the reverse of the Graduation Half Dollar is a rendition of the Presidential Seal. Designed by Frank Gasparro, this famous design shows a heraldic eagle with a shield on its chest. In its talons, you will see both arrows and an olive branch, symbols of war and peace. A ring of 50 stars symbolizes the 50 US states. Inscriptions read United States of America, Half Dollar.
