1968 Half-Dollar John F. Kennedy Circulated Coins

Obverse: The obverse shows a strong but simple bust of John Fitzgerald Kennedy, the youngest-ever-elected president. Gilroy Roberts, chief engraver of the Mint at this time, based this profile on a portrait prepared for Kennedy's presidential medal. Roberts created this design immediately after Kennedy's assassination.

* Weight: 11.5 g

* Composition:

Outer layers: 80% silver, 20% copper

Inner layers: 20.9% silver, 79.1% copper

* Silver content: 4.60 g (0.1479 troy oz of pure silver)

Reverse: The design on the back of Kennedy half-dollar is based on the presidential seal. It consists of a heraldic eagle with a shield on its breast, holding a symbolic olive branch and a bundle of 13 arrows. A ring of 50 stars surrounds the design, which gives this coin the distinction of having more stars than any other circulating coin.
