By 1984 the Kennedy half dollar was already twenty years old and losing favor with most Americans. The size was an issue but the rising use of credit also meant large change was becoming unnecessary.
A generation had passed since Kennedy's assassination and the warm feelings for this coin began to go away. Production fell to a fraction of the 1970s average and continued to fall until they stopped circulation production by 2002. Yes they are still being made and new ones are occasionally still found in your change but they are not popular.
Here's the stats...
Type/Country: 50 Cents / United States
Metal: 91.67% Copper, 8.33% Nickel
