2010 Kennedy Half Dollars

The United States Mint released the 2010 Kennedy Half Dollar on January 29, 2010. The Kennedy Half Dollar series began in 1964, although since 2002, the coins have not bee issued for circulation. Rather, a limited number of coins has been produced to satisfy the demand from coin collectors.

The US Mint is selling the 2010 Kennedy Halves packaged in either two roll sets of 200-coin bags. The two roll sets contain one 20-coin roll with the “P” mint mark and one 20-coin roll with the “D” mint mark. These sets are priced at $32.95. The 200-coin bags contain 100 coins for each mint mark. These bags are priced at $130.95.

Since I have collected the series for many years, I pick up a few of the US Mint’s two roll sets each year. Although I have heard that the quality of the coins often varies, the rolls I opened last year yielded a few examples that graded MS67 at NGC.

Later in the year, the US Mint will release satin finish versions of the 2009-P&D Kennedy Half Dollar in the uncirculated mint set and clad proof and 90% silver proof versions of the 2009-S Kennedy Half Dollar in the annual proof sets.

I just ordered some of these. It is a shame that they are not released into circulation. Maybe there should be a change in the design to make it more popular. Anyone have any comments about something like that?

I read someone’s idea that the National Parks should have been put on the reverse of the Half Dollar and circulation of the denomination resumed. I thought that would have been a great idea.
