Introduced in 1964, the JFK Half Dollar was quickly introduced following the assassination of the 35th President of the United States of America. Just over two months after the assassination of JFK, dies were approved for the design of the new US half dollar. Four months after his assassination, the new JFK Half Dollar was in production and distributed into circulation. Still available today, the modern cupro-nickel coin is an ideal target for enhancement in affordable coin collections. Today, you have the opportunity to get 9/11 20th Anniversary JFK Half Dollars online from Provident Metals.
These commemorative 9/11 20th Anniversary Half Dollars have colorized obverse visuals honor the solemn anniversary of the most devastating attack on American soil in modern history. The destruction wrought by the attacks took 2,977 American lives in the immediate aftermath, with 340 FDNY members killed and 72 members of NYPD killed as well.
On the obverse face of 9/11 20th Anniversary JFK Half Dollars is a depiction of the New York City skyline in the years before the 9/11 attacks and as it appears have been rebuilt. The Twin Towers stand tall in their former glory in the left field. To the right side of the design is the image of One World Trade Center, the centerpiece of a rebuilt NYC skyline. The American flag flutters in the background field with the Statue of Liberty in the lower field of the coin. There are inscriptions of 20th Anniversary, 9-11 Never Forget, and 2001-2021 on this side.
The reverse of 9/11 20th Anniversary JFK Half Dollars comes with an image of the modified Presidential Seal. Designed by Frank Gasparro, the seal features a bald eagle in front-facing relief with an olive branch in one talon and the arrows of war in the other. The US national shield rests on its chest. The bird clutches a ribbon with E Pluribus Unum inscribed. Its head looks toward the olive branch of peace. Outside of the ring of stars around the seal are inscriptions of United States of America and Half Dollar.
The JFK Half Dollar was designed and released quickly by the US Mint as a result of design dies already available to it. Gilroy Roberts, then the 9th Chief Engraver of the US Mint, and Frank Gasparro, then the Assistant Chief Engraver and future 10th Chief Engraver of the US Mint, created the images for the obverse and reverse. The duo had created the design dies eventually used for the JFK Half Dollar in 1962 for two separate Presidential Medal series releases.
These 9/11 20th Anniversary JFK Half Dollars are available with protective capsules and a Certificate of Authenticity. The coins come with beautiful visuals on the obverse that have been created with precise applications of colorization that create a new design visual.
