Description

In 2019, the U.S. Mint produced two half dollar coins that were unlike any other made before them. The 2019-S Silver Kennedy Half Dollar was the first half dollar to be struck from.999 fine silver. 412,509 examples of the 2019-S Proof Silver Kennedy Half Dollar were stuck. That same year, to celebrate the 50th anniversary of the Apollo 11 moon landing, the U.S. Mint struck 66,824 examples of the 2019-S Apollo 11 50th Anniversary Commemorative Half Dollar. President John F. Kennedy made a promise to the American people that NASA would reach the moon by the end of the decade. While he did not see this great act, it was his resolve and support of the space program that made it possible. These two monumental 2019-S half dollars are both graded in perfect Proof 70 Ultra Cameo condition. This set also includes a 1964 proof Kennedy Half Dollar, which was the first and only circulating issue that the coin was struck in .900 fine silver. To add to the quality of this stunning Kennedy Half Dollar, it will be housed in Rick Tomaska's exclusive NGC Aspiration holder. These renowned holders are only given to Kennedy Half Dollars that Rick Tomaska has inspected and deemed to exhibit the highest quality luster and eye appeal for their date and grade. With such low mintages, both 2019 coins are  each considered an Absolute Rarity.
