Why purchase this perfectly graded 2017-S Silver Proof Kennedy Half Dollar?

The U.S. Mint introduced the Kennedy Half Dollar in 1964, just a few months after the devastating assassination of President John F. Kennedy. Traditionally, U.S. circulating coinage designs were struck for a minimum of twenty-five years before a major change in design. An exception was made by Congressional decree for the production of the Kennedy Half Dollar to honor the much-loved president, replacing the Franklin Half Dollar design after only fifteen years of minting. Originally included in the 2017-S U.S. Mint Limited Edition Silver Proof Set with a mintage of 50,000, this proof was struck at the San Francisco Mint from 0.36169 Troy oz. of .900 fine silver measuring 30.60 mm in diameter.

Distinctive Commemorative Design

Designed by Gilroy Roberts, the obverse depicts the portrait of Kennedy, facing left. The reverse, designed by Frank Gasparro, features the United States Presidential Seal surrounded by fifty stars.

Perfectly Struck Proof 70

This flawless Silver Proof Kennedy Half Dollar from the 2017-S Limited Edition Silver Proof Set is graded Proof 70 UC by Numismatic Guaranty Corporation (NGC). The Ultra Cameo (UC) designation refers to the outstanding quality and contrast of the proof's mirror-like and frosted surfaces. The exceptional proof coin is enclosed within a protective holder along with the First Releases Label, indicating that it was received by NGC for grading within the first thirty days of release.
