1964-D Kennedy Half Dollar. MS-66+ (PCGS). Luxurious frosty surfaces are brilliant at the centers with iridescent golden-apricot, olive-copper, powder blue and pinkish-silver, mainly at the peripheries. Thus us a premium quality coin that is very close to a Superb Gem rating. So popular was John F. Kennedy and so tragic his assassination in Dallas at the hands of Lee Harvey Oswald on November 22, 1963, that plans were immediately set in motion for a memorial coin. As early as November 27, in fact, Mint Director Eva Adams authorized work on the project, and by January 2, 1964, the first dies had been completed. The obverse was designed by Chief Engraver Gilroy Roberts by adapting the portrait from the presidents 1961 inaugural medal. The reverse, which features a rendition of the presidential seal, is the work of Assistant Engraver Frank Gasparro.The Denver Mint produced the lower mintage of the two circulation strike issues for the 1964-dated Kennedy half dollar, but the mintage still topped 150 million. In addition, the new Kennedy half dollars from both the Denver and Philadelphia mints were saved in large numbers by a mourning public. The Pogue specimen is more visually appealing than most Gem Mint State examples of the 1964-D that we have brought to auction over the years, and it is sure to sell for a nice premium.
