CoinWeek reported that NGC has certified a sealed bag of 1964-D Kennedy half-dollars and will be the only Kennedy half dollars with a First Day of Issue designation. https://coinweek.com/modern-coins/ngc-certifies-bag-of-first-day-of-issue-1964-d-kennedy-half-dollars-for-rare-collectibles-tv/?fbclid=IwAR0df9kJo2_o-wMa22gWljXgrWdgSu8X9OZKDOi9HHKM58_mGxpEJAgO6HA
I wonder how the collector world take the news that I have President Johnson gifted First Day Issue 1964-P Kennedy half dollar.
In any case, I look forward in obtaining a companion 1964-D FDI for my 1964-P FDI.
Graded/encapsulated 4th quarter 2019. These four specimens completes the entire series of Princess Kaiulani 1 ounce gold akahi crowns.
In my collection !
An MS 63 specimen of 2M-94 was sold for $2640 !
Found a 1996 Princess Kaiulani Akahi Crown (reworked seller image). WIGB indicates mintage at 20.
I was perusing the internet for available Princess Kaiulani coins for my wife’s collection and found this… Mintage is 500 for gold/silver set and 1000 for silver only set. No prices listed on their website.
An intact Souvenir of Hawaii 49TH State made the MS 64 grade!
NGC population is now 5 (with this specimen).
Yesterday, I visited the National Museum of American History (Washington DC) and got a good look at this coin. It’s a coincidence that my last blog entry is a copy of this original specimen.
