Description & Analysis

The year 1967 marked the first time since 1964 that the U. S. Mint confined its production to coins bearing their actual date of manufacture. The coin shortage was over, and enough of the new clad coins were in circulation that the Treasury Department no longer had to maintain its deception in striking coins of previous dates to prevent hoarding. This is almost certainly why the mintage of 1967 half dollars is so high, as the entire year was devoted to coins of that date alone.

Gems are readily available through MS-65, with enough MS-66 coins certified to mostly meet the demand from advanced collectors. Worn examples are common, too, though only rarely are they seen grading less than Extremely Fine.

It was already evident by 1967 that half dollars of any date were becoming a rare sight in most of the country. In actual fact, the popularity of this denomination in commerce had been declining since the 1950s, but the novelty of the Kennedy design sealed its fate once and for all. By the 1970s half dollars were rarely seen in circulation except in areas near gambling casinos, as these coins remained in common use at casinos until the late 1980s.

Several nice doubled-die obverse (DDO) varieties are known for this issue, with a smaller number of minor DDR varieties.

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.
