US Kennedy (JFK) Half Dollar 1964 to Date | half dollar kennedy liberty eagle shield man hawk nickel falcon king halves kenedy jfk dollars halfe doller dol usa shiled As you probably know, Bob, JFK half dollars were issued in 90% silver in 1964. Then, from 1965 to 1970, these coins contain 40% silver. After that, today's half dollars contain no silver at all, so all JFK halves minted after 1970 are worth face value, that is, one-half US dollar. Bicentennial JFK half dollars, dated 1776-1978 with Independence Hall on the reverse side, contain no silver and are worth face value.

Pre-1971 coins are worth their silver content. Here is the amount of pure silver in the pre-1971 coins:

1964: 0.3617 troy ounces
1965-1970: 0.1479 troy ounces

Silver price at the time of this writing is around $13 US dollars per troy ounce. That makes the value of these coins:

1964: 0.3617 x $13 = $4.70
1965-1970: 0.1479 x $13 = $1.90

The value of silver changes every day. Look up the current value at kitco.com, then do the multiplication to see what they are worth today.
