The special 50th Anniversary Kennedy Half-Dollar Uncirculated Coin Set was designed to commemorate the 50th anniversary of the Kennedy half-dollar, first released in 1964. Each coin features the Kennedy portrait design on the obverse (heads) with the year 2014. Something special for any collector or the perfect gift!
The set includes two 2014 Kennedy half-dollars with uncirculated finishes, one each from the U.S. Mint at Philadelphia and Denver.
The packaging includes a coin card and folder. On the front of the folder is the U.S. Mint logo with the words “50th Anniversary Kennedy Half-Dollar Uncirculated Coin Set.” The coins are encapsulated in a separate card in the folder and the obverse (heads) and reverse (tails) of each coin are visible. When the coin card is flipped over from the front to the back, the text and reverse designs appear upright.
The front of the folder includes an enlarged partial image of the obverse of the 1964 Kennedy half-dollar, along with the number “5” and the 1964 obverse coin image to represent the “0,” representing “50”. The inside of the folder includes an enlarged partial image of the reverse of the 1964 Kennedy half-dollar, smaller coin images of the obverse and reverse of the coin, and information regarding the 50th anniversary of this coin design.
Coin design descriptions, a Certificate of Authenticity, coin specifications, and the official Department of the Treasury seal are printed on the back of the card containing the two coins.
The designs on the coins replicate the portrait on the 1964 design:
Obverse: The design shows a portrait of John Fitzgerald Kennedy, the youngest-ever-elected president. U.S. Mint Sculptor-Engraver Gilroy Roberts based this profile on a portrait prepared for Kennedy’s presidential medal. Roberts created his original 1964 design shortly after Kennedy’s assassination.
Reverse: The design is based on the presidential seal and was done by U.S. Mint Sculptor-Engraver Frank Gasparro. 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 United States coin ever produced for circulation.
Note: All other U.S. Mint 2014 Kennedy half-dollars that are not included in the K13, K14 and K15 sets share the common reverse described above, while the obverse features a strong but simple portrait of President John Fitzgerald Kennedy and the inscriptions “LIBERTY” and “IN GOD WE TRUST”.
The designs on the coins in this set feature the 1964 Kennedy half-dollar portrait design on the obverse (heads) and include the year “2014” to commemorate the 50th anniversary of the coin.
