S United States Mint, San Francisco, United States (1854-date)


The 1998 Robert F. Kennedy Silver Dollar was issued to commemorate the life and work of Robert F. Kennedy, authorized under Public Law 103-328. The year of release for the coin took place on the 30th anniversary of his death.

The Robert F. Kennedy Silver Dollar was produced at the San Francisco Mint, available in proof and uncirculated versions. The coins were sold individually or as a two coin set, containing one of each finish. The United States Mint also offered a Kennedy Collector’s Set, which included the uncirculated version of the Robert F. Kennedy Silver Dollar and a 1998-S Matte Proof Kennedy Half Dollar. This set, originally priced at $59.95, was very popular with collectors due to the specially issued Kennedy Half Dollar.

The maximum authorized mintage of the RFK silver dollar across all product options was 500,000. Surcharges added to the cost of each coin were intended to be used for the Robert F. Kennedy Memorial. Coins were available for sale from the US Mint from January 2, 1998 to December 31, 1998.
