5 Decades of S Mint Proof Half Dollars

 E-mail this product to a friend


• The San Francisco Mint started minting Proof coins in 1968;  previously, Proof coins were made at the Philadelphia Mint. 

• Proofs are the highest quality U.S. coins.

• Each coin is struck multiple times under high pressure to bring out the three-dimensional designs and mirror-like background.

• Due to the painstaking minting process, Proofs are limited editions.

• Proof coins are never released into circulation but are made exclusively for collectors.

• The coins are not available individually from the Mint but only in official U.S. Proof Sets.

• This collection includes one Proof Kennedy Half Dollar from each decade it was struck at the San Francisco Mint.

• All coins from San Francisco feature the coveted “S” mint mark.

• The “S” mint mark appears above the date on the obverse of the coin.

• There are five coins – one from the 1960’s, 1970’s, 1980’s, 1990’s, and 2000’s.

• The 1960’s coin is dated 1968 or 1969 and is one of the first-ever Proof Kennedy Half Dollars struck at the San Francisco Mint.

• The 1960’s coin was struck in .400 silver.

• The Kennedy Half Dollar was first minted in early 1964 to honor President John F. Kennedy.

• The portrait of Kennedy was approved by Jacqueline Kennedy, the President’s widow.

• The other side features the Presidential coat of arms. 

• Each coin is protected in a clear capsule and the set is displayed in a custom case with a Certificate of Authenticity.
