The liaison in the beginning paragraph jumps to a CoinNews.net article that outlines the approaching products in detail, so very briefly :

Silver Set’s Melt Value
Collectors should be by and large comfortable with the $ 99.95 price of the four-coin argent set, or about $ 25 per coin.
Breaking down the numbers, each half-dollar from the fix has a fade or intrinsic argent respect of $ 7.46 at Friday ’ randomness London argent Fix price of $ 20.62. Combining the four argent coins, the set has a silver weight of 1.44 troy ounces and an intrinsic measure of $ 29.83, placing its premium over thaw at about $ 70.

50th Anniversary 24K Kennedy Gold Coin
The remaining anniversary product is a dual-dated 1964-2014 Kennedy half-dollar that is West Point struck in about three-quarters of an ounce of 24-karat, or 99.99 % fine gold.
