Kennedy Anniversary Commemorative News: NGC Labels Announced

The recently announced Kennedy Half Dollar 50th anniversary commemorative coins will receive a special large-size NGC label when submitted for encapsulation, according to the Sarasota, Florida-based company.

The US Mint has announced seven new commemorative coins that will mark the 50th anniversary of the popular Kennedy half dollar. The new coins are:

  • 1964-2014-W High Relief Proof Gold Half Dollar
  • 2014-P High Relief Proof Silver Half Dollar
  • 2014-W High Relief Reverse Proof Silver Half Dollar
  • 2014-S High Relief Enhanced Uncirculated Silver Half Dollar
  • 2014-D High Relief Uncirculated Silver Half Dollar
  • 2014-P High Relief Uncirculated Clad Half Dollar
  • 2014-D High Relief Uncirculated Clad Half Dollar

All of the 50th anniversary Kennedy half dollars feature the original high relief, accented hair design used for the 1964 Kennedy half dollars.

The gold half dollar is further distinguished by the dual dates of 1964 and 2014, reminiscent of the 1776-1976 bicentennial Kennedy half dollar.

JFKLabels_AskNot_WhiteCore_NGC has created a special large-sized label to enhance the presentation of these exciting new releases. The NGC label features an iconic portrait of John F. Kennedy, the 35th President of the United States, along with his famous quote: “Ask not what your country can do for you, ask what you can do for your country.”

ANA Sales Note: The US Mint is expected to release the 1964-2014-W High Relief Proof Gold Half Dollar and the 2014-P and D High Relief Uncirculated Clad Half Dollars at the ANA show. NGC will designate these coins with the “ANA INAUGURAL RELEASES” pedigree. Clad Half Dollars must be submitted in pairs. Coins must be submitted to NGC at the ANA show to receive this special pedigree. Original purchase receipt required.
