The Obverse features a portrait of John Fitzgerald Kennedy, the youngest-ever-elected president. United States Mint Chief Engraver Gilroy Roberts based this profile on a portrait prepared for Kennedy’s presidential medal.
Based on the Presidential Seal and was created by United States Mint Sculptor-Engraver Frank Gasparro, the Reverse design consists of a heraldic eagle with a shield on its breast holding a symbolic olive branch and bundle of 13 arrows. It features the inscriptions UNITED STATES OF AMERICA, HALF DOLLAR and 3/4 OZ. .9999 FINE GOLD. A ring of 50 stars surrounds the design, which gives this coin the distinction of having more stars than any other U.S. coin ever produced for circulation.
