A bust of President John F. Kennedy features on the obverse of 1976-S 40% Silver Half Dollars. Here, the former President is shown in left-profile relief from the neck up. This neo-classical style portrait is credited to Gilroy Roberts, who was Chief Engraver at the U.S. Mint from 1948-1964. The obverse also contains inscriptions that read Liberty, In God We Trust, 1776-1976.

Independence Hall is featured on the reverse of these 40% Silver Kennedy Half Dollars. This iconic building in Philadelphia was a crucial meeting site for the Founders as they drafted the Declaration of Independence and United States Constitution. The reverse includes inscriptions reading United States of America, 200 Years of Freedom, E Pluribus Unum, Half Dollar.

The competition for the bicentennial coin re-designs was announced on October 23, 1973. For the Bicentennial Half Dollar, Seth Huntington’s rendition of Independence Hall was selected. Additionally, Jack L. Ahr’s colonial drummer design was chosen for the Bicentennial Quarter, while Dennis William’s superimposition of the Liberty Bell against a full moon was picked for the Bicentennial Dollar. The Bicentennial coins entered circulation on July 7, 1975, and were minted through 1976.

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 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.
