55 Years Ago, John F. Kennedy Rallied the Nation for Civil Rights

55 years ago in June 1963, President John F. Kennedy unveiled the Report to the American People on Civil Rights. His report, delivered to a nationwide TV and radio audience, outlined his commitment to the civil rights movement; he also explained his proposed legislation that, following his tragic assassination six months later, would become the Civil Rights Act of 1964 that outlawed discrimination in voting. Now, 55 years later, you can own a stunning array of collections honoring Kennedy’s legacy.

This collection includes all four Kennedy Half Dollar types: 90% silver (1964 only), 40% silver (1965-1970), copper-nickel (1971-present), and the one-time-only 1976 coin commemorating the 200th anniversary of the Declaration of Independence.

JFK Mint Mark Collection

The Kennedy Half Dollar was first struck in 1964 to honor President John F. Kennedy, and it remains a moving tribute to one of our nation’s most popular leaders. However, it has not been released into circulation since 2001, making it increasingly hard to find even a single coin. This collection features superb uncirculated coins from both the Philadelphia and Denver Mints, plus a hard-to-find proof (the U.S. Mint’s highest quality strike) from the San Francisco Mint.

 

 

JFK Complete Circulating 40% Silver Half Dollar Collection

Due to the rising cost of silver, the U.S. Mint last made 90% silver coins in 1964. From 1965 to 1969, however, it made Kennedy Half Dollars for circulation in 40% silver … the only 40% silver coins in U.S. history ever released for circulation! This collection features each year’s 40% silver coin – a fabulous collection from a fascinating era in U.S. Mint history.
