In 1872, President Ulysses S. Grant created Yellowstone National Park with the swipe of a pen. As he signed a Congressional bill into law on March 1, 1872, President Grant established not only the first-ever US national park, but also what is believed to be the first-ever national park in the world. Celebrating 150 years of the park, Merrick Mint has added beautiful, colorized visuals on the obverse. Today, you have the opportunity to get Yellowstone National Park 150th Anniversary JFK Half Dollar Coins online from Provident Metals.
The JFK Half Dollar is one of the largest coins in circulation in the United States, both in terms of size and denomination. Only the modern Sacagawea Dollar has a larger denomination. The JFK Half Dollar has been in production since 1964 and traditionally features a bust of President John F. Kennedy on the obverse with a modified presidential seal on the reverse.
On the obverse side of Yellowstone National Park 150th Anniversary JFK Half Dollar Coins is a depiction of the American bison. The American bison is captured on this side of the coin in a colorized relief that is reminiscent of James Earle Frasers bison from the Buffalo Nickel. In the background, the geyser at Old Faithful is visible spewing steam into the sky. The field includes notations of 150TH ANNIVERSARY, YELLOWSTONE NATIONAL PARK, and 1872-2022.
The reverse field of the Yellowstone National Park 150th Anniversary JFK Half Dollar Coin features the modified presidential seal. The seal shows a front-facing bald eagle with the US national shield on its chest, the arrows of war in one talon, and the olive branch of peace in the other. The field includes a banner with E PLURIBUS UNUM inscribed and a ring of 50 stars. The other inscriptions read UNITED STATES OF AMERICA and HALF DOLLAR.
Yellowstone National Park was Americas first-ever national park and was founded more than 40 years before the National Park Service even existed. It was administered by various governmental organizations until 1916 when the National Park Service was formed.
