The Kennedy half dollar, first minted in 1964, is a fifty-cent coin. Intended as a memorial to the assassinated President John F. Kennedy, it was authorized by Congress just over a month after his death. The obverse shows a portrait of John Fitzgerald Kennedy, the youngest-ever-elected president. United States Mint Sculptor-Engraver Gilroy Roberts based this profile on a portrait prepared for Kennedy's presidential medal. Roberts created this design immediately after Kennedy's assassination. The design on the back of Kennedy half dollar, by United States Mint Scupltor-Engraver Frank Gasparro, is based on the presidential seal. It consists of a heraldic eagle with a shield on its breast, holding a symbolic olive branch and a bundle of 13 arrows. A ring of 50 stars surrounds the design, which gives this coin the distinction of having more stars than any other circulating coin.
They are not available in public circulation or at any bank. Since 2002, Kennedy half dollars have only been struck to satisfy the demand from collectors, making it the perfect coin to colorize with your image.
