Prior to 1965, coins such as the US dime, quarter, and half-dollar contained a total of 90% silver in the metal content. With rising prices for silver in the 1960s, the US Mint was forced to drop the silver content of its coins to 40% instead. This did not last long before the US Mint switched to a cupro-nickel alloy instead for its circulation coins. Today, you can purchase some 40% Silver Coins with a total face value of $1 (USD) online at Silver.com.

Coin Highlights:

  • Available to you inside of small plastic bags!
  • Includes 1965 to 1970 date marks!
  • Consists of .1479 Troy ounces of actual silver content.
  • The individual face values of $.50 (USD) are fully backed by the US government.
  • President John F. Kennedy’s portrait is on the obverse.
  • A modified Presidential Seal is on the reverse.

From 1965 to 1970, the United States Mint issued the popular Kennedy Half Dollar coin with an adjusted 40% silver content. The coin first appeared with the Kennedy design in 1964 and featured 90% silver content at the time. With rising prices for silver and people hoarding the original 1964 Kennedy Half Dollars as mementos of the fallen president, changes were made to the silver content. By this time, all US coins had been adjusted away from 90% and 40% silver content with the exception of the half dollars.

All 40% Silver Coins available in this listing are shipped to you in plastic bags. You will receive a total of two half-dollar coins inside the bag for a total face value of $1 (USD). The date marks for your coins are chosen at random based on availability at the time your order is prepared for shipping. As mentioned above, the only available date marks include a range from 1965 to 1970.

The designs of the Kennedy Half Dollar are unique in that they are the only ones the individual depicted actually had a say in the creation of. President Kennedy was assassinated in November 1963 and by March 1964 new half dollars were out with his image. This was made possible because existing images of the president from his Presidential Medal Series, which he approved himself, were used.

On the obverse of Kennedy Half Dollars is the Gilroy Roberts left-profile bust of President John F. Kennedy. The reverse side of the coins includes Frank Gasparro’s modified image of the Presidential Seal. The seal includes the heraldic eagle of the United States with a ring of 50 stars around its figure.

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.
