    Hey everyone, I know that this forum is mostly about PM's and such but I was curious if anyone knew the value of the 1976 Bicentennial Kennedy Half Dollar. I have over $100 face value and really wish they were silver but yeah... lol

    My plan is to basically get some cash out of these so I can then spend it on more bullion. I've looked everywhere but there are so many different answers to this seemingly simple question but I guess the old saying is right, a coin is only worth what someone is willing to pay for it. I've seen them go for $2.99 each on eBay and that seems like a pipe dream to me. I'd be stoked to get even more than face for them. lol

    For the skim readers... Yes, I know this coin is NOT Silver and is pretty common and is otherwise only worth it's face value but here's to hoping I can get more. :p

    They are very very common. People would be a fool to pay more than $.50 for em.

    As a 90% silver prospector, I can tell you that searching thru boxes of halves from the banks, I get about 1 in 5 or 6 that are bicentennial halves. These are extremely common as already noted on this thread unless you have proofs which would get you above face value if in pristine condition. Advice for your halves? Change them in the bank for some FRN's and use them to pick up some real metal at your favorite dealer or coin shop.

    The bicentennial halves and quarters were made in very huge quantities, as they were minted in both '75 and '76, and thus will never have numismatic value.

    My ex-father-in-law collected bicentennial coins and I tried to tell him pretty much what is being said here. That lead to my pronouncing Krugerrands minted in 1976 had more intrinsic value that a bicentennial quarter could ever hope to have. Since then whenever I have a chance to refer to bicentennial Krugers I give myself a little chuckle.:haha:

    Yeah, you all pretty much confirmed my suspicions. Thanks! I'll go ahead and take the FRN's and buy some Ag! :)
