The 1964 Kennedy Half Dollar was the first year that the coin was minted, replacing the Franklin Half Dollar. The change to this new Half Dollar was fast tracked after the assassination of President Kennedy in 1963.
The two coins in this set both come in brilliant uncirculated condition and 1964 was the only year that the Kennedy Half was struck in 90% silver. Starting in 1965, production was moved silver-clad alloy with only 80% silver. In 1971, production moved to the full nickel-copper alloy we see today.
Value wise, at $28.40 these two coins are a great low cost addition to your collection. Book value for each of these coins are $20. If you are just starting out your collection or are looking to get these first year Half Dollar coins into your existing one, this is a solid opportunity to add them at a reasonable price.
