Some of the most collectible American coin designs are actually those the United States Mint struck and released into circulation, rather than the modern bullion coins with collectible versions. Designs of the past are highly coveted by collectors and reproduced by countless private mints. Few of those mints have envisioned those designs as the Osborne Mint does in the American Legacy Collection. Right now, 1 oz Proof Silver Domed American Legacy Kennedy Half Dollar Rounds are available to purchase online at Silver.com.

This final release in the American Legacy Collection of 1 oz silver rounds features the 1964 Kennedy Half Dollar design. The half dollar had featured the effigy of Benjamin Franklin from 1948 until 1963. There were no plans to replace the Franklin Half Dollar design until President Kennedy was assassinated in November 1963. In an effort to immortalize the beloved president, the US Mint swiftly put plans into action to replace Franklin’s bust with one of Kennedy.
The obverse of 1 oz Proof Silver Domed American Legacy Kennedy Half Dollar Rounds features the Gilroy Roberts left-profile portrait of President John Fitzgerald Kennedy. This design has been struck on a domed surface by the Osborne Mint, creating 10 times the depth for the design and enhancing the visual intricacies of the design. Inscriptions include “Liberty” across the top of the design field, “In God We Trust,” and the “1964” date mark that signaled the introduction of the Kennedy Half Dollar.
On the reverse side of 1 oz Proof Silver Domed American Legacy Kennedy Half Dollar Rounds, you will find the same design element struck differently. The reverse has a sunken field with the bust of Kennedy struck into that sunken field in right-profile relief instead of left-profile.
