The Story

What can you say about JFK? Whether agreed with his politics or not, Kennedy was the President for the generation of Baby-Boomers. When Congress authorized putting his likeness on a coin they sealed his place both in history and the world of coin collecting. Growing up in the 1960’s has become synonymous with Kennedy’s vision of putting a man on the moon and the growth of the space program. Apart from the Kennedy Half Dollar, Kennedy indirectly left his mark on the Eisenhower and Susan B. Anthony Dollars with their depiction of the moon on the reverse of the coins as well as the National Community Service commemorative half dollar. Only FDR can rival JFK for his impact on the psyche of the United States in the 20th century.

The Kennedy Half Dollar was one the fastest coins designed, approved, minted and circulated in United States history. The design for the half dollar was completed on November 27th, 1963 just 5 days after Kennedy’s assassination. Congress approved the coin on December 30, 1963 and the coin was released to general circulation in March 24, 1964.

As a kid growing up in the 1960’s, I didn’t remember the Franklin Half Dollar although I have grown to love the coin. (But that is another story.) It was always a treat to get a Kennedy Half from mom and dad or especially my grandparents. I have long had an album of them and it is one of my most complete sets. The set truly does have much sentimental value for me. The progression into high grade Kennedy Halves was a forgone conclusion when I started this journey. I suspect this may also be one of the first graded sets I complete. My goal for the set is 100 percent PF70 coins.
