1964 Kennedy Half Dollar

These 1964 Kennedy silver half dollars are coins in the 50 cent denomination minted only in 1964 by the United States Mint. This was the one and only year that 90% Kennedy half dollars were ever minted. These silver half dollars were produced the year after John F. Kennedy was assassinated as a means of honoring the late president.

The 1964 Kennedy half dollar is a popular 90% silver bullion investment because 1) many of these coins are in excellent condition because they were not in circulation for a long period of time, 2) it carries an intrinsic face value since it was once used in circulation, and 3) it is a highly fungible hard asset. Many of the 1964 Kennedy half dollars are in XF or better condition with very little wear.

How much silver is in 90% Coins?

Junk silver is always bought and sold in terms of face value, regardless of quantity or denomination. The amount of silver in $1.00 face value of dimes (10 x $.10) is equivalent to $1.00 face value of quarters (4 x $.25) or halves (2 x $.50). For every $1.00 face value of 90% silver, there is approximately .715 of a troy ounce of silver. So if you buy $100 face value of junk silver, you will buy about 71.5 troy ounces of silver. A full bag of junk silver is $1,000 face value, or approximately 715 troy ounces of actual silver weight
