Classic President John F. Kennedy Design by Gilroy Roberts

Gilroy Roberts designed the left-side effigy of President Kennedy that serves as the obverse design. The young leader appears poised and confident. Also on this face are the inscriptions "LIBERTY," "IN GOD WE TRUST," and the date, "1972."

An eagle guards a union shield at the center of Frank Gasparro's reverse design, which is based on the Presidential Seal. The bird holds arrows in one talon and an olive branch in the other. Thirteen stars arch over its head, while fifty encircle it. "UNITED STATES OF AMERICA" and "HALF DOLLAR" are inscribed on the top and bottom of the rim, respectively.
