      What notable American family has had more of its members honored on US coins than any other family?

We’re beginning to think of what we owe the other fellow, not just what we’re compelled to give him. The time’s coming… when we shan’t be able to fill our bellies in comfort while others go hungry, sleep in warm beds while others shiver in the cold.... And God willing, we’ll live to see that day…” Basil Rathbone,"Sherlock Holmes Faces Death" (Universal 1943)

      There are actually several possible answers, as 4 families are tied at 4.

        That is one of the correct answers-

        John, Robert, Jackie, and Eunice have all been honored on US coins. John Kennedy has been honored on the half dollar, as well as a special gold commemorative half dollar and a presidential dollar. Robert and Eunice were each honored on commemorative silver dollars, while Jackie was honored in the Presidential Wives $10 gold coin series. Eunice has the honor of being the only woman honored as herself on a US coin while still alive.
