Choice Brilliant Uncirculated 1964 Kennedy Half Dollar
The Kennedy half dollar was first struck by the US Mint in 1964 and these are from that year and in Choice Brilliant Uncirculated condition - even after 51 years. The design has not changed and is still used today, although there are few half dollars in this condition to be found anywhere. In 1963, following the assassination of President Kennedy, this coin was created to honor his service as the 35th President of the United States. Even today, John F. Kennedy is dearly remembered and is one of the most recognizable faces of United States history.
90% Silver Struck in 1964
In 1964, the US Mint decided to use 90% silver in this Kennedy half dollar. It ended up being the last year of the 90% circulation coinage in our US history. Each roll of these Kennedy half dollars contain over 7 Troy oz. of silver.
$10 Face Roll
There are 20 half dollars in this tube - which translates to $10 in face value. However, in this condition and 51 years later, you would not want to cash them in for that today. Because they are uncirculated from that time period - makes them much more valuable than just the face denomination value.
Kennedy Half Dollar Roll Packaging
Originally, these rolls from the mint would have been in paper rolls. Since these coins were not purchased directly from the US Mint, they will not arrive in the original paper rolls but are in plastic tubes as shown; to preserve and protect these halves as much as possible. While these plastic tubes are not impervious, they do provide a much greater level of protection than original paper rolls would have. The tubes do allow easy access to the coins and the top is re-screwable to secure them after inspections. The transparent aspect of the tube allows you to easily see the coins without removing them and thus keeping them better preserved.
Kennedy Half Design
The 1964 Kennedy half dollar features an side view depiction of John F. Kennedy on the obverse.

Directly next to the banner is a collection of 13 stars - representing the original thirteen colonies. Surrounding the eagle is a complete circle made of 50 stars as well. This side of the coin bears the words "UNITED STATES OF AMERICA" and "HALF DOLLAR."
