2014 50th Anniversary Gold Kennedy Half Dollar ~ NGC PF 70 Ultra Cameo

In honor of the 50th Anniversary of the Kennedy Half dollar's initial minting, the U.S. Mint released this special 3/4 oz Kennedy half dollar.

Obverse: A portrait of John Fitzgerald Kennedy, the youngest–ever–elected president. U.S. Mint Chief Engraver Gilroy Roberts based this profile on a portrait prepared for Kennedy’s presidential medal.

Reverse: Based on the Presidential Seal and was created by U.S. Mint Sculptor–Engraver Frank Gasparro. It consists of a heraldic eagle with a shield on its breast holding a symbolic olive branch and bundle of 13 arrows. It features the inscriptions “UNITED STATES OF AMERICA, HALF DOLLAR” and “ 3/4 OZ. .9999 FINE GOLD.” A ring of 50 stars surrounds the design, which gives this coin the distinction of having more stars than any other U.S. coin ever produced for circulation.
