The JFK Half Dollar, first minted in 1964, was intended as a memorial to the assassination of President John F. Kennedy and what better way to showcase it then to put it into a classic pocket watch. A simple but sleek silver tone case houses the genuine United States half dollar, which hasn’t been released into circulation for over 10 years. The obverse side of the coin bears the Presidential Seal and this is what is displayed on the front of the watch case. It is selectively gold-layered, adding a handsome richness to this classic timepiece. This 1 7/8” pocket watch has a sweep second hand, quartz precision, and is attached to a 14” steel fob chain.
