The Silver Tone Half Dollar Coin Pocket Watch is the classic time piece. A simple but sleek silver tone case houses a genuine United States half dollar. The reverse design of the JFK Half Dollar featuring the Presidential Seal has been selectively layered in 24K pure gold. The JFK Half Dollar first minted in 1964 was intended as a memorial to the assassination of President John F. Kennedy. It is still minted today but rarely seen as they have not been released into circulation for over 10 years. The coin is secure in the pocket watch casing and opens to quartz style and second sweeping hand over classic Roman numerals. The pocket watch is 1 7/8 inches in diameter and hangs from a 14 inch steel fob open link chain. This historical high polished time piece displays the beauty of a genuine US coin on the front and then brushed finish on the back, which may be engraved and personalized. Comes with a Certificate of Authenticity.
