On the obverse of 1976-S 40% Silver Half Dollars a bust of President Kennedy is depicted. This portrait is widely recognized as the greatest work of former Chief Engraver Gilroy Roberts. In it, we see JFK facing left, a dignified, stoic expression on his face. We also see inscriptions on the obverse reading IN GOD WE TRUST, LIBERTY, 1776-1976.


The reverse face of 1976-S 40% Kennedy Silver Half Dollars features Independence Hall. Located in Philadelphia, this building finished construction in 1753 and was an essential meeting place for the Founding Fathers. You will find inscriptions on the reverse also reading INDEPENDENCE HALL, UNITED STATES OF AMERICA, 200 YEARS OF FREEDOM, E PLURIBUS UNUM, HALF DOLLAR.


The Kennedy Half Dollar originally debuted in 1964. Following the assassination of JFK, Jackie Kennedy and the director of the U.S. Mint collaborated on a new coin to honor the fallen president. Production was expedited and included modified renderings of existing works from designers Frank Gasparro and Gilroy Roberts. The Kennedy Half Dollar replaced the Benjamin Franklin Half Dollar and is recognized today as a classic of American coinage.
