50th Anniversary Kennedy Half-Dollar Gold Proof Coin

The essay series launched during National Coin Week in April to celebrate the 50th anniversary of the iconic 1964 Kennedy half-dollar and to remember President Kennedy's legacy concludes this month with a spotlight on the 50th anniversary of the Civil Rights Act of 1964.  The United States Mint takes enormous pride in participating in both milestone anniversaries.  Please join us in remembering these events and leaders, many of them commemorated with iconic coin and medal designs.  As we honor President Kennedy's contributions to the advancement of civil rights, we also celebrate 50 years of connecting him to Americans through the popular Kennedy half-dollar coin.
