Full Answer

No proofs for the double-headed Kennedy half-dollar were struck in 1965, 1966 or 1967. While coins minted in 1964 contained a 90-percent silver alloy, those made in 1965 and after contained a lower amount of silver in favor of more copper and nickel. As of 2014, the U.S. Mint continues to manufacture the double-headed Kennedy half-dollar.
