Midwest Bullion - JFK Silver Round
Written by Midwest Bullion Exchange     February 22, 2017    

The quality of the 1 oz. JFK silver round is impeccable and is produced in the United States by the Highland Mint. Because of its high quality, the Kennedy Silver Round is Precious Metals IRA approved.

The 1 oz. JFK Silver Round is a huge favorite with many silver bullion investors. This replica of the Kennedy half dollar reminds us of a time not long ago when United States coinage was 90% silver. After 1964 silver was taken out of US coinage with the exception of the 40% Kennedy half dollar, which lasted until 1970.

Please keep in mind the 1 oz. JFK silver round is a replica of the original Kennedy half dollar that was released in 1964, just 69 days after Kennedy`s assassination. The original Kennedy half dollar was designed as a memorial for the slain president and contained .900 silver. 90% Kennedy half dollar bags are still available but not easy to come by. BU Kennedy half dollar bags are even tougher to find and we rarely find people willing to part with them. Kennedy Silver Rounds make a perfect addition to your IRA or as a private holding and because of its highly popular design.

The obverse of the 1 oz. JFK Silver Round features a profile image of the 35th president himself with the word “Liberty” above the profile and “Kennedy Half” inscribed around the edge of the coin. “In God We Trust” and 1964 are minted below the image profile. The reverse is the classic image of the Heraldic Eagle clutching arrows in one talon and an olive branch in the other. United States of America and Half Dollar circle the eagle. “ONE TROY OUNCE 999 SILVER” circles the lower outer edge and “COMMERATIVE COPY” on the upper outer edge.

We are confident if you are looking to buy silver bullion with a popular design and top notch quality, the 1 oz. JFK silver round is a fine choice. If you have any questions about Kennedy Silver Rounds or other silver bullion products please call us at 888-928-3390 8-5 CST.
