I have seen many Kennedy half dollars of about every date that have been gold plated, none have a collectible value and are considered altered or novelty coins. The only value other than 50 cents is if you find someone that wants it.

All gold plated circulating coins were plated after they left the Mint. Because of this the value is often actually less than the coin itself. By and large, post Mint gold plated coins are worth very little. However, there are exceptions. The only notable exception to this rule is with numbered commemorative issues. CSOA and several other commemorative coin companies issued 24K gold plated coins that included individually numbered certificates of authenticity. These are now quite rare and demand a good amount when sold. The John Fitzgerald Kennedy 24K Gold clad coin issued by CSOA (Collector's Society of America) is worth around $100, as long as the original numbered certificate of authenticity (Gold Electroplate Certificate) is included. These coins were struck in 1985 on the 1976 bicentennial half dollar, and the CSOA only issued 100,000 coins.

925 Italy means your bracelet was: made in Italy, it's 92.5% pure sterling silver, 7.5% infused alloy metal (possibly copper) and gold plated. -JagiMonster I believe that the above answer is correct for the most part, however since it was made in Italy and it is 925 sterling, the gold could be gold filled or vermeil both of which are much, much better than gold plated. You would have to ask a jewler. I know that there is an FAS jewelry school in Ireland. They may have one in Italy as well but I'm not certain.

Gold filled is all gold while a plated one is just a combination of other metals that are then gold plated.

The other 2 dates were added after the coin was minted by someone who used a metal punch. It's a reasonable assumption they were trying to create some sort of memento of the 25th anniversary of JFK's election, but it's not something done at the Mint. In any case a standard 1984 circulation half dollar is only worth face value, so the fact that someone altered it doesn't affect its value.
