This is a "brilliant uncirculated" coin which means, although it is "uncirculated" it isn't bright and shiny like the proof coins. It is NOT a proof or a gem coin.
The John F. Kennedy fifty cent coin is a bicentennial 1776-1976 coin with a "tat" motto stamp on the front, and two logo stamps on the back. Carry this everywhere...it is meant to be used.
Comes in a plastic "flipper" for protection. **There is NO SILVER in this coin**
