Product description

Product Information
Add one more to your enviable collection of the formerly used currencies by getting the 1969, Kennedy Half Dollar home. Struck just two months after the unprecedented assassination of the 35th president of America, this Kennedy Half Dollar was marked as a tribute to John F. Kennedy. Initially this American coin was composed of 90 percent silver which was reduced to 40 percent later due to rising silver prices in 1965. First minted in early 1964, the 1969, Kennedy Half Dollar came as a replacement to the Franklin Half Dollar. The obverse image of this American coin that depicted Kennedy was designed by Chief Engraver Gilroy Roberts while the reverse image of the coin has Eagle holding an olive branch (peace) and arrows along (strength), was designed by Frank Gasparro. Although this Kennedy Half Dollar entered in commerce in 1964, it did not do the rounds immediately because of the collectors’ hoarders who kept it for its silver content and as a memento of the slain patriot. This Kennedy Half Dollar, now an integral part of the American currency system has been through various changes over these years.

Please...do not miss the boat! This may be the last decent buying opportunity for silver coinage! I'm encouraging all of my clients to stay on a continuous BUY SILVER schedule starting NOW! DUMP ALL PAPER holdings while there is still time to convert to HARD ASSETS like good real estate (believe it or not) and precious metals...SILVER IN PARTICULAR which in my opinion will now quadruple in value as gold doubles. If the Mayans were wrong, and 2013 comes...metals will take off, (if they have not already), and / or many nations will convert to a silver AND gold standard for currency, and metals will take off, or the worthless nature of paper money / fiat currency will be discovered, and metals will take off...YOU NAME IT...why are you not buying more? Protect your ASSets and true wealth. Insure the value of your LIFE-WAD by turning into something which is backed only by itself, and cannot be messed with! Don't let the "giant invisible hand", as my wife refers to is as, come in and scoop your fortune! US90% coins, in BU, or miniumum XF condition is recommended, because when they start weighing it...you'll want FULL WEIGHT...circulated is OK, but make is good strong material. U.S. HALF DOLLARS, QUARTERS, or DIMES only!! 1964 or older ONLY! Got it. Get 'em. They are the MOST LIQUID of all forms. They are globally-recognized for purity & quality. When you buy, you can also get collection-grade material, since we may transition into another money-form without violence in our nation, then the collectors will come out of the woodwork. Only those desparate for cash are selling at this point! BE A BUYER! THIS IS IT! HELP ME RETIRE! I'm still buying every deal I can...God Bless America...God Bless our leaders, especially those who respect, honor, and admire the Constitution of the United States of America!!! PLEASE crush the banks...buy silver now, buy gold! Good luck!!

Any collection containing a Kennedy half combined with the first man on the moon is an investment. A piece of history that can be passed on for generations is worth the investment.
