As of 2015, the value of a Kennedy half dollar is 50 cents. While these coins were first minted in 1964 in commemoration of the late and former President John F. Kennedy, The U.S. Mint still mints and circulates the coins today.
Even though the value of these coins hasn't changed, their worth may have. Collectors base the coin's worth on the year minted and their condition. The mint year is important because it determines how much silver the coin contains. There are two types of worth related to a silver coin, its face value and bullion or melt value.
