Commemorating the 50th anniversary of the Kennedy half-dollar, the United States Mint will offer its first-ever gold half-dollar. It features the original 1964 obverse (heads) design created by United States Mint Chief Engraver Gilroy Roberts with a special 1964-2014 inscription. Each coin contains 3/4 troy ounce of pure, 24-karat gold and is struck with a proof finish at the United States Mint at West Point.
The obverse (heads side) design of the 2014 Kennedy Gold Half-Dollar depicts a portrait of John Fitzgerald Kennedy, the youngest-ever-elected president. United States Mint Chief Engraver Gilroy Roberts based this profile on a portrait prepared for Kennedy’s presidential medal.
The reverse (tails) design is based on the Presidential Seal and was created by United States Mint Sculptor-Engraver Frank Gasparro. It consists of a heraldic eagle with a shield on its breast holding a symbolic olive branch and bundle of 13 arrows. It features the inscriptions UNITED STATES OF AMERICA, HALF DOLLAR and 3/4 OZ. .9999 FINE GOLD. A ring of 50 stars surrounds the design, which gives this coin the distinction of having more stars than any other U.S. coin ever produced for circulation. Please note, due to the age of the coin, small copper spots may be visible, which are perfectly natural and part of the aging process of the coin.
