This stunning 2018 Kennedy Silver Reverse Proof Half Dollar was created to commemorate the 50th anniversary of the San Francisco Mint producing proof coinage. What makes this half dollar unique is the beautiful reverse proof finish, resulting in a magnificent effect where the reverse proof coin's shiny design elements and frosted backgrounds makes a stunning contrast (photos above do not do this coin justice!). With a limited mintage of 200,000, it will be a true collector's item for years to come.
The Kennedy Half Dollar was first minted in 1964 as a memorial to the assassinated President John F. Kennedy. It was authorized by Congress just a month after his death. Since 2002, Kennedy Half Dollars have only been struck to satisfy the demand from collectors, and are available at a premium through the Mint. This beautiful 2018 coin comes encased in an air-tight capsule to protect the coin's integrity.
