Why buy this Limited Edition Silver Proof Set 2018-S Kennedy Half Dollar?

This Kennedy Half dollar was struck as part of one of 50,000 Limited Edition Silver Proof Sets. As arguably the most iconic coin in the set, this one is a highlight for discerning collectors. It was struck from 12.5 g of .900 fine silver at the San Francisco Mint. That mint's "S" mint mark can be found on the obverse.

Powerful John F. Kennedy Design by Gilroy Roberts

The Kennedy half dollar was issued quickly following the beloved President's death. The obverse features a left-side effigy of the young leader. Designed by Gilroy Roberts, the portrait conveys the President's quiet confidence. He is joined by the inscriptions "LIBERTY," "2018," and "IN GOD WE TRUST."

Frank Gasparro's reverse design is a modified presidential seal. An eagle spreads its wings and legs wide as it guards a union shield. It holds symbols of military readiness, arrows, and a preference for peace, an olive branch, in its talons. Thirteen stars, which represent the original states, arch over its head, while fifty encircle the entire image. Rim inscriptions read, "UNITED STATES OF AMERICA" and "HALF DOLLAR."

Nearly Perfect PF69 UC FDI Trolley Label

This coin is flawless as seen by the naked eye according to the experts at Numismatic Guaranty Corporation (NGC), who awarded it their second highest grade, Proof 69. Its Ultra Cameo certification further indicates that it bears particularly sharp contrasts between frosted devices and mirrored fields, while its exclusive First Day of Issue certification indicates that it one of just a handful of coins of its type that has undergone an exclusive submission process. The label gives a nod to the city in which this coin was struck with one of the trolley cars for which that city is famous.
