David Bleicher - Kennedy half dollars-  the coin you only thought you knew

   

  Kennedy half dollars are unique in many ways.  It is perhaps the best example of American nationalism affecting coinage.  Never before or again would the  decision to create a coin be made so suddenly, new coins introduced so swiftly, or a design that should have been minted for at least ten more years get replaced so abruptly, all revolving around public sentiment toward an assassinated president.  

     Join David Bleicher as we examine the coin’s timeline, from its inception, design, and minting, along with its varieties, collecting, and the impact the Kennedy half dollar had on coin collecting.  This presentation is a great start for newer to intermediate collectors, yet interesting enough to surprise the advanced collector.  Dust off your Kennedy album and prepare  to get re-introduced to a coin you only thought you knew.
