The obverse of the 2023 JFK Half Dollar Set proudly features a captivating left-profile relief portrait of President John F. Kennedy. This iconic design was skillfully created by Gilroy Roberts, the 9th Chief Engraver of the US Mint, serving from 1948 to 1964. Inscriptions include LIBERTY, IN GOD WE TRUST, 2023, and a D or P mint mark.


On the reverse side, a modified version of the presidential seal takes center stage. The design showcases an awe-inspiring front-facing relief of the American bald eagle, with the US national shield emblazoned on its chest. Clasping the arrows of war in one talon and the olive branch of peace in the other, this design was meticulously crafted by Frank Gasparro, the 10th Chief Engraver of the United States Mint, serving from 1965 to 1981. Inscriptions read UNITED STATES OF AMERICA, HALF DOLLAR, and E PLURIBUS UNUM.


Ruthenium has several industrial applications due to its unique properties. It is used as a catalyst in various chemical reactions, including in the production of fertilizers, petrochemicals, and pharmaceuticals. Ruthenium alloys are employed in the manufacture of electrical contacts, wear-resistant coatings, and high-temperature resistors. It is also used in the electronics industry for thin-film resistors and electrical contacts.
