Why add this perfectly graded 1998-S Matte Finish Kennedy Silver Half Dollar to your collection?

The only way to get this Silver Matte Finish Kennedy Half Dollar in 1998 was to purchase the two coin Kennedy Collector's Set, which was only available for a period of six weeks. The set, released by the U.S. Mint as a tribute to Robert F. Kennedy, included an uncirculated 1998 Robert F. Kennedy Silver Dollar and this specially finished 90% silver Kennedy Half Dollar. This half dollar coin measures 30.6mm in diameter, is struck from 0.36169 Troy oz. of .900 fine silver at the San Francisco Mint, and weighs 12.5g. The U.S. Mint reports the final mintage of this gorgeous specimen to be an incredibly low 62,350.

Classic Kennedy Half Dollar design

The Kennedy Half Dollar design is based upon a presidential medal, the design of which had been approved by Kennedy himself not long before his assassination. The obverse is graced with the bust of Kennedy, facing left, designed by Gilroy Roberts. The reverse, designed by Frank Gasparro, features the United States Presidential Seal, surrounded by a circle of fifty stars.

Flawless Specimen 70

The Numismatic Guaranty Corporation (NGC) has graded this 1998-S Matte Finish Kennedy Silver Half Dollar a perfect Specimen 70. This matte-like finish Specimen coin is minted especially for collectors with a uniform finely frosted texture, and a hybrid strike quality between a Mint State and Proof.
