John Fitzgerald Kennedy 1964 Silver and 1976 Bicentennial Half dollars

Coins-United States | AC coin$

On December 15, 1961 our great President and his wife Jackeline stayed as guests for one night at "La Fortaleza", the governor's mansion in Old San Juan, Puerto Rico. It was just a one day-night layover while the couple were en route to various South American countries. They were greeted by our then governor Luis Muñoz Marín.
