Description & Analysis

The Denver Mint coined 114,411,608 1964-dated half dollars during this year and another 41,793,838 in 1965, accounting for the total mintage displayed above. As with their Philadelphia Mint cousins, the 1964-D halves were destined to be hoarded in Mint State condition, with the ones that actually circulated rarely being found in less than AU-50 state. The vast majority of unworn survivors are quite heavily marked from years of being traded by the bag and thus repeatedly in contact with one another. Gems are fairly available through MS-66, but this issue is rare above that grade.

The 1964-D half dollar is rich in doubled-die and repunched mintmark varieties. The better of these are attributed by NGC under its VarietyPlus service.

NGC Price and Value Guides Disclaimer

Disclaimer: The prices listed in the various NGC Price and Value Guides are compiled from a number of independent, third party sources in the numismatic community which NGC believes to be reliable. Prices provided are averages, not specific prices for individual coins. Further, because these prices are only updated from time to time, they do not reflect short term pricing trends, which are quite common and are often quite dramatic, given the volatile nature of the collectible coin marketplace. This is especially true for rare coins, where there are fewer sales and greater variations in sale prices. For all of these reasons, the prices in these guides are designed to serve merely as one of many measures and factors that coin buyers and sellers can use in determining coin values. These prices are not intended, and should not be relied upon, to replace the due diligence and — when appropriate — expert consultation that coin buyers and sellers should undertake when entering into a coin transaction. As such, NGC disclaims all warranties, express or implied, with respect to the information contained in the NGC Guides. By using the NGC Guides, the user agrees that neither NGC nor any of its affiliates, shareholders, officers, employees or agents shall have any liability for any loss or damage of any kind, including without limitation any loss arising from reliance on the information contained in the Guides.
