40 Percent Kennedy Half Dollars for Sale - $100 Face Value
One of the last circulated US coins that contained any silver, the 40% Silver Kennedy Half Dollar was the product of a government quest to mint a lower cost form of coinage compared to the 90% silver coins that were in circulation pre- 1965. Continually increasing prices of silver contributed to the change from 90% junk silver coins to 40% silver coins.
These coins are composed of 40% silver and 60% copper and are still recognized as legal tender in the United States; each coin weighs 11.5g. The chief advantage of purchasing these Kennedy Half-Dollars is the fact that they will never be worth lower than their face value, as each coin is actual, spendable money! An ideal way to purchase silver without bearing the premiums carried by other silver bullion coins, these coins ensure one of the best ‘Silver Gained to Dollars Spent’ ratios in the market.
Bearing the face of the prolific American president, John F Kennedy, on its obverse – the coin itself is an important part of American history. The motto ‘In God We Trust’ is inscribed below the neck of the president and the year of minting is imprinted below the motto. At the top, the word ‘Liberty’ can be seen, with the word, partly obscured by the head of the president.
An Eagle soaring in front of a shield is featured on the reverse, an adaptation of the official United States seal. This is accompanied by the words ‘United States of America’ on the top of the coin while its value, ‘Half Dollar’, is imprinted on the bottom.
These coins were minted from 1965-1970 and any such coins available in the market will feature a year from that time period. They are the most cost-effective method of obtaining silver for investment purposes as they are redeemable at their face value, i.e. they will always be worth at least their official monetary value – in this case, a hundred dollars (200 coins). They are an excellent choice for a gift due to the presence of an adored US President on it. Moreover, they are a great avenue for investment in silver.
