2011 Kennedy Half Dollar

Even though the denomination has not been issued for ten years, the US Mint continues to strike Kennedy Half Dollars to meet the needs of collectors. On February 15, 2011, sales of the collector bags and rolls of the 2011 half dollars began on the Mint’s website.

Featuring the same design since the launch of the series, the obverse of the 2011 Kennedy Half Dollar features a portrait of John F. Kennedy by Gilroy Roberts and the reverse features the Presidential Seal designed by Frank Gasparro. The coin was initially struck in 90% silver, which was reduced to 40%, and eliminated after 1970.

The circulation strike coins included in the US Mint’s bags and rolls are only issued through this channel. The US Mint strikes 2011 Kennedy Halves in proof version and 90% silver proof version for inclusion within annual sets. The US Mint also strikes coins with a brilliant finish for the 2011 Mint Set.

The US Mint issue price is $134.95 for 200-coin bags containing 100 coins from each mint facility. The two roll sets, containing 20 coins each from the Philadelphia and Denver Mint are $34.95 each.
