This United States Kennedy Half Dollar Money Clip was made from a United States Half Dollar which was first minted in our country in 1964, The Coin was the last in a series of Coins that the United States used that were 90% Silver and in 1965 was changed to 40 % Silver for a few years and than became only base metal. The Coin was put out to commemorate President Kennedy after his assassination in 1963. The Half Dollar size Money Clips are great in that they are a little smaller and lighter than our One Dollar Money Clips. They still hold plenty of Cash as well as a couple of credit cards to carry around. We mount the Coin in a Stainless Steel Money Clip that looks perfect for this Coin.
