Proof sets have been issued on an annual basis by the US Mint for collectors for numerous decades. What makes the 1964 Proof Set special is that it contains the first year of the John F. Kennedy Half Dollar, in honor of the late President. Kennedy’s popularity and the idea of a new Half Dollar sent sales for this set through the roof. Orders for this Proof Set had to be halted at one point, and once continued, were limited. The US Mint typically sets aside each year a certain number of Proof Sets as a contingency against loss. In 1964, 36,086 Proof Sets were lost in the mail, a number far exceeding the quantity they had set aside. Presently, Silver.com has 1964 US Mint Proof Sets available for purchase.

Coin Highlights:

  • Delivered in sealed plastic pouch with US Mint manila envelope!
  • First year of the Kennedy Half Dollar!
  • Set consists of five 1964 coins from the US Mint!
  • Coins consist of .6148 Troy ounce of actual silver content in total.
  • Each coin has its respective face value in US dollars.
  • Each coin has its own obverse and reverse design.
  • 3,950,762 proof sets were issued in 1964.
  • Proof specimens.
  • Please bear in mind that some sets may no longer have the envelope or other shipper materials, but all coins remain in good condition inside the sealed pouches.

The 3,950,762 Proof Sets sold in 1964 held the record for the most Proof Sets minted until the Bicentennial year in 1976. 1964 was the last year that the coins in the US Mint Proof Sets contained 90% fine silver. Beginning in 1965, the Proof Sets were reduced to 40% fine silver (silver clad).

Each sealed plastic pouch contains five coins in addition to an octagonal foil seal imprinted with US MINT PHILADELPHIA. This pouch is then inserted into a Treasury Department US Mint manila envelope.

Each coin is struck in brilliant proof, resulting in coins that are visually beautiful. A Proof Set consists of one each of the Lincoln Cent, Jefferson Nickel, Roosevelt Dime, Washington Quarter, and the new Kennedy Half Dollar.

The obverse of the Kennedy Half Dollar features the left profile of the 35th President of the United States, John F. Kennedy. It was Jacqueline Kennedy who expressed the preference that President Kennedy be depicted on the half dollar, as she did not want to replace George Washington on the quarter. This design was created by Chief Engraver Gilroy Roberts.

The reverse of the Kennedy Half Dollar features a version of the Presidential Seal that was on the Mint’s Presidential series. Frank Gasparro had worked in conjunction with President Kennedy in creating the bust of Kennedy for the Kennedy medal in the Presidential series.

Is my information secure?

We take data security very seriously. When you place an order with silver.com, your information is transmitted with the utmost SSL (secure socket layers) 256-bit protection. We also never have access to your credit/debit card details, as they are securely communicated directly to the payment processor (Authorize.net) and never retained by Silver.com. For this reason, we also don't process credit/debit card orders over the phone, as it is the least secure way to process those transactions.

In addition, all VISA and MasterCard orders undergo an additional step of user authentication - the respective Verified by VISA or MasterCard SecureCode programs. Upon completing checkout with a VISA or MasterCard credit/debit card, you may be promoted for additional details to confirm your identity and protect our customers against credit card fraud.

Finally, the data we do retain in our system, including but not limited to name, address, phone number, and order history, is never shared with or sold to any unrelated third-parties. Please review our Privacy Policy for full details on our data security measures.

Please feel welcome to call us toll free at 1(888) 989-7223 or use our Live Chat feature during normal business hours Monday through Friday, 08:00 a.m. to 06:00 p.m. CST. Alternatively, you can email us at help@silver.com and expect a response within 1 business day.

Please note, the Silver.com website accepts orders 24/7/365, so you can always lock in live product prices and make purchases outside of business hours.

Do you charge sales tax?

We are required to collect sales tax in certain states. You can review your states sales tax policy here: https://www.silver.com/taxes. You should always consult with a tax adviser for specific advice in your area.

Where does your spot price come from?

We use a live, up-to-the-second spot price feed supplied by Xignite.com, a worldwide leader in the data supply market.

Are your products actually in stock?

Yes. We are one of the few bullion dealers in the industry who only deems products "in stock" when we have them on-hand and ready to ship immediately. In the instance of a presale item, we denote that the product is on presale and the estimated shipping date. While we make the best efforts to hit presale dates, the dates are only estimates, given we cannot control mint production issues and/or carrier dealyes.

Why are multiple prices listed?

We offer a 4% discount to "cash" paying customers - with paper check, bank wire, and bitcoin payments being defined as cash. On many products, we are also able to offer volume discounts to customers purchasing large quantities of the same item. All volume pricing is laid out in the chart on the product's description page, as well as in the cart.

When do I lock in my price?

All prices are locked in at the time of purchase. Credit/debit card, PayPal, BitCoin, Ethereum, and Ripple orders are paid at the time of checkout, while paper check and bank wire orders require a credit/debit card on file to lock in your pricing while we await your payment. Please note, paper check and bank wire orders will NOT result in a charge to your card - we simple maintain the card on file while we await full payment by your selected payment method.

Do you ship internationally?

We currently only ship to addresses in the United States, including APOs.
