Additional Details on 50th Anniversary Kennedy Half Products

Details continue to emerge for the United States Mint’s 2014 50th Anniversary Kennedy Half Dollar products. Release dates have been provided for two of the three products, pricing for all three products is available, and a preliminary product page has been posted for the first product.

Preliminary details for the products were available last month. In addition to an individual proof gold coin, the Mint would also offer a two coin uncirculated set containing copper nickel clad coins and a four coin set containing 90% silver coins in four different finishes. The gold coin would carry a dual date of “1964-2014” and the remaining coins would carry the “2014” date. All products would include coins which replicate the portrait used on the original 1964 design.

Across all products, there will be an initial ordering limit of five per household. The US Mint indicates that the order limit will be re-evaluated as necessary over the period the products are available for sale. There have been no specific mintage limits indicated suggesting that the products may be minted to demand.

The first product available for release will be the 50th Anniversary Kennedy Half Dollar Uncirculated Coin Set, scheduled to go on sale July 24, 2014 at 12:00 Noon ET. Each set contains two 2014-dated half dollars struck in the standard copper-nickel clad composition at the Philadelphia and Denver facilities. A preliminary product page has already been posted on the United States Mint’s website here.

The coins are packaged in an illustrated coin card and folder, which will contain information about the 50th anniversary of the coin design in addition to coin specifications and a certificate of authenticity.

The set carries the lowest price point of $9.95 per set.

Gold Kennedy Half Dollar

A release date of August 5, 2014, 12:00 Noon ET has been provided for the 50th Anniversary Kennedy Half Dollar Gold Proof Coin. The coins will also be available for purchase at the ANA Chicago World’s Fair of Money starting on August 5.

Each coin will contain three-quarters of a troy ounce of .9999 fine, 24 karat gold. Packaging will consist of a custom designed, brown mahogany hardwood presentation case with a removable coin well. The coins will be accompanied by a certificate of authenticity.

Pricing will be determined based on the US Mint’s flexible pricing mechanism used for gold and platinum numismatic coins. The initial price will be established based on the average weekly price of gold during the period leading up to release and may be adjusted weekly. A pricing chart for the coin is scheduled for publication in the Federal Register. According to the chart, for an average gold price in the $1,300 to $1,349.99 range, the coins would be priced at $1,277.50. For each $50 price range increment, prices move higher or lower by $37.50.

The third product will be the 50th Anniversary Kennedy Half Dollar Silver Coin Collection. Each collection will contain four 2014-dated half dollars struck in 90% silver. One reverse proof coin will be from the West Point Mint, one proof coin will be from Philadelphia, one enhanced uncirculated coin will be from San Francisco, and one uncirculated coin will be from Denver.

The coins will be packaged within an embossed leatherette-type folder which includes the image of President Kennedy from the coins. The capsules are removable from the folder, which can be displayed as trifold or stored in a protective outer sleeve. A booklet with information and images of the design of the 1964 Kennedy Half Dollar is included along with a certificate of authenticity.

Each set is priced at $99.95. At this point, the US Mint indicates that the set is scheduled for release in the fall of 2014.

    smiledon… I don’t think the mint can actually do it on their own. With the laws passed requiring them to produce the coins – there needs to be a change in the law – that would allow them to cease production. I suspect as is the case with the Kennedy’s they would have to request congress permission to cease production altogether before they could stop producing the coins. (that said they do seem to skirt the legal issues – such as the $1 coin being required to be minted at a certain level in regards to the $1 presidents)

  2. Mk says

    @Pitt-Louis. I made contact with the guy selling the France Astronomy coins… He has sold the coins before with positive ratings left by the buyers. Maybe they got scammed and are holding fakes. I agree with you both, the price appears too good to be true. Though if they turn out to be real, someone got a good deal. He sold out all 5 he had available really quickly of course.

  3. Zeeman says

    MK@ i dout they will be fake, one thing somone mention is he might ship empty package, its hard to fake the Curve coin, let alone mint a real one, ask US mint. For $80 dollars even fake , i cannot see him making too much money after e-bay , paypal fee, fake coin, packaging. well it also depends on my defination of “too much money”, anyway good luck to whoever order it.

  4. says

    There have been rumblings from some posters (and even COIN WORLD) as to why we are celebrating or commemorating a coin series, especially one which is no longer minted for circulation, Well, didn’t the Mint do the same thing in 2009, producing several versions of the Lincoln cent in commemoration of its 100th anniversary?
    And yet it remains that the 50th anniversary Kennedy offerings will essentially be a baby boomer product. It’s the older baby boomers who became attached to the Kennedys, many putting together nice sets. Perhaps the Mint should title these offerings “Baby Boomer Kennedy Half Dollar Reward Sets”.

  5. Clark says

    The flood of gold $5 BHoF continues and seems to be picking up for the holiday weekend. I just picked up a gold MS70 for a little over $700 and am going for more of the series key. It will be interesting to see how low they go before hitting bottom and swinging back up. Let freedom (and free markets) ring!

  6. Dave61 says

    Hi, sorry to piggyback on another thread but I have a question about the

    2014 America the Beautiful Quarters Three-Coin Set™ – Great Smoky Mountains National Park (P87)

    I recently got a notification from the Treasury Dept about an error with the 3 coin set. The packaging incorrectly states 1962 instead of 1926 in the date the park was created.

    Are these kinds of errors worth saving? Are they being corrected in subsequent issues or will they continue to sell them with the error?

    tia,
    Dave

  7. Scott says

    @ Hawkster, Actually 2009 was the 200th anniversary of Lincoln’s birth, and the 100th anniversary of that event was commemorated with the first Lincoln cent in 1909. The 2014 “anniversary” Kennedy half dollars celebrate nothing more than the 50th anniversary of the first Kennedy half dollar, which if you stop to think about it, is really pretty stupid.

  8. gary says

    @Hawkster… I get your point, the cent is seldom used but it is still manufactured with intent to circulate. By the way, 2009 was the Bicentennial of Lincoln’s birth, that was the reason for the separate issues commemorating his life. It had nothing to do with the birthday of a coin design.

  9. thePhelps says

    I guess I’ll find out if it is real – an empty box or a fake. I snatched it up using eBay bucks to pay for most of it.

  10. says

    Gary and Scott,

    If the Kennedy half hangs on for another few years to 2017, will we have still another commemorative to celebrate the 100th anniversary of JFK’s birth as we did for Lincoln’s 200th?
    Maybe that one will be platinum.

  11. Wes says

    It is celebrating a Coin that commemorates JFK not really that stupid. IMO it is far better reason than the 2012 ASE set to mark the 75th anniversary of the current mint facility in San Fransisco.

  12. Pittsburgh P says

    @thePhelps keep me updated on that. I’m intetested to see what comes of it. I don’t think its fake & if anything is fishy at all it’d be stolen like I said earlier & that shouldn’t affect you. I got mine for 30$ more so it isn’t a huge stretch… The one that went for 400+ was an anomoly imo. Did it come with the OGP & COA?

  13. Mk says

    @thePhelps- good luck, let me know how it turns out. Hopefully the tip turns out to be a good one.
    @Pitt- 100% profit….that’s okay too! Lol

  14. Mk says

    Oh and if it turns out to be the real thing, you can owe Pittp a beer, because I still owe him one and I’ll pass on my debt to you….lol Oh and the $400 eBay coin included all OGP, box, outer sleeve, COA, etc.

  15. Pittsburgh P says

    Mk That one better have! 🙂
    Shoulda been clearer, I meant the one for 80$ that Phelps just picked up.

  16. Mk says

    Hahaha… Yeah buyer should have shipped with a case and then some. Though it does boggle my mind that someone didn’t do a little a homework and realize with a little homework and patience, the coin could be found in the $150 range.

  17. Mk says

    Someone asked about who has the latest BBHOF order shipped. Not me, I have a silver proof with an estimated ship date of 06/12 and proof clads est. 06/18…lol

  18. Mk says

    @Louis – NGC has only one proof France astronomy coin graded PF70… Hope it’s yours! 🙂

  19. fmtransmitter says

    no one answered my question…anyway happy fourth…sounds like many can’t see the font to well. i agree it needs an upgrade to darker…i used my bay buckaroos for the buffalo 2014 hr tuvalu…cheerios….

  20. thePhelps says

    Mk-Pitts… the seller has sold a few of the coins and gotten positive feedback on them. I see he even auctioned 1 off and only got $19.50 for it… the rest are in the $80 range. I typically don’t buy from international sellers – but figured since most of it was eBay bucks – I decided to roll the dice.

  21. thePhelps says

    Update: the seller just sent me an eBay message indicating the coin has shipped. So far so good – better than many sellers.

  22. says

    Progress people Progress… I have a 04/03 and a 04/04 order for Proof Clads and both went In Stock and Reserved this morning…Progress people Progress…
    MAYBE just maybe, I will have them for July 15th’s All Star Game…

  23. Pittsburgh P says

    VaRich that is a SWEET bat… Idk about 250$ though. If it had the 1$ BHoF coins instead of the .50 cent’ers I’d be in like flynn!

    Phelps thats good, can’t believe someone got one for under 20$!
    That guys probably happy as hell!
    Did you ask the seller why he shipped from Russia & it says he’s located in the US? Does it come with COA & box/sleeve. . .

    Cag thanks for the update off to the mint website to see whats up…

  24. john says

    stolen coins I got a email from a coin shop I know back east.I guess that guy at hsn,mike got rip off for some hall of fame gold coins.there looking for so,so, about 40 of them. In mint issues boxs.I guess that what happen went you use someone else to order for you.

  25. says

    It’s pretty amusing how the Mint, as is the case with the Kennedy half, produces special sets and commemoratives geared around “anniversaries”. How about all the “anniversary” silver eagle sets that have been offered since 2006? Some of these “anniversaries” leave you scratching your head. Anyone remember the Marine Corps commem, which oddly celebrated their 235th anniversary?

    So, yes, the Mint utilizes “anniversaries” as a marketing tool–and usually very successfully.

  26. says

    All of the comments bouncing back and forth regarding Russian coins, astronomy coins, ebay sellers of these, etc, is confusing the hell out of me. What are you guys trying to say? And why?

  27. says

    235th anniversary must be the reason I could buy a PF70 last year for $45 delivered! And yet I can’t touch a 2001 buff same grade for under $250. Semper fi!

  28. thePhelps says

    Hawkster it is a Russian seller – who had a 2009 Domed Astronomy coin for sale on eBay. Yesterday Mk posted a note pointing to the coin and I purchased 1. They have varying price points – but this one was $80 plus shipping – so I used my eBay bucks and paid for much it on a gamble.

    Pitts… I don’t see where you are finding the seller in the US. I checked his profile and see no US reference.

    flaier26 – Based in Russian Federation

  29. says

    thePhelps,

    Thanks for the explanation. I hope your domed coin is not doomed. But what is the big fascination with theses coins anyway? Are they really that desirable that collectors are suddenly scrambling to snap them up?

  30. Pittsburgh P says

    Phelps if you click on the seller it says
    location:US
    Here’s a link..
    http://m.ebay.com/seller?itemId=231273314421&sid=flaier26

    It ships from the russian federation.

    @Hawkster these have been popular with collectors for a while now and seldom come up for sale especially at that price point. First domed coin ever with the nice design and 10,000 max mintage.
    That’s why it was odd this guy had more than a couple for so cheap.

    lol classic greed….

  32. says

    Pittsburgh P,

    O.K., I went on ebay and looked up this 2009 astronomy coin. Although the Phelps says this is a domed coin, I did not see any indication, either in the photos or in the description, that the coin is, indeed, domed.

    The 2013 Australian astronomy coin is, however, domed. It is also colorized. So I’m still confused as to what coin the Phelps is alluding to.

  33. Pittsburgh P says

    @hawster I don’t think there are any available on ebay right now. The domed one is 1 oz made in gold and silver. They also made a 5 oz one in silver with the same design that isn’t domed & thats the one your probably seein on the bay. Yes there are 2 austrailian southern sky colorized domed coins also with the final one of the series coming out this year but those are not the ones we are talkin about.

  34. VA Rich says

    Happy Birthday America!

    Boy, did I ever win the lottery when I was born in this country!

  35. says

    Pittsburgh P,

    Thanks. By the way, are you a Pirates fan? If so, you may remember a player by the name of Keith Osik, who was Jason Kendall’s backup catcher. Keith was my former next door neighbor on L.I.

  36. says

    Happy July 4th everone….VA Rich…well said!!! We really are very lucky.

    I thought I’d share the letter/article below…if anyone wants to know where it came from, I’ll be glad to give the source…but I just thought the message is right on target…we need to do a better job of educaing our young on our Nation’s great history.

    It was 238 years ago today that 56 men pledged “their lives, their fortunes, and their sacred honor” for the freedom of a new nation, signing a document that might have been their death sentence, the Declaration of Independence.

    Their act of courage, like that of the patriots at Concord a year earlier, reverberated around the world. Their words did, too, stating the cause of the Revolution (and of many revolutions to follow) with a clarity that no one has ever matched.

    “We hold these truths to be self-evident,” they wrote: “that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable rights, that among these are life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness.”

    With these words on that hot summer day in Philadelphia, the Founding Fathers changed the course of human history. The United States became the first country on earth to be established on fundamental principles of freedom. And for more than two centuries, our nation has continued to be defined by these big ideas. They are the basis of our system of government, the subject of our political debates, and at the heart of what makes America exceptional.

    Most Americans still understand these timeless ideals. In 2010, a Gallup survey asked respondents, “Because of the United States’ history and its Constitution, do you think the U.S. has a unique character that makes it the greatest country in the world?” 80 percent of all Americans affirmed their belief in America as an exceptional nation, including 91 percent of Republicans, 77 percent of Independents, and 73 percent of Democrats.

    Unfortunately, we are failing to pass on our appreciation for America to the next generation of Americans. A recent Pew Research Center survey found that only 34 percent of people between the ages of 18 and 34 say they believe America is the greatest country in the world.

    The problem begins in our schools. Our students are failing to learn American history–and without understanding our country’s past, they can’t possibly understand what makes America an exceptional nation.

    For two generations now, we have taught our children revisionist or politically correct history–like the strange idea that our Founding Fathers risked their lives out of greed or self-interest. As a result of this failure to teach the truth about our history, we are beginning to see our nation’s memory of the past slip away–especially the values and principles for which our founders actually fought.

    Recent results of a Department of Education National Assessment of Educational Progress survey suggest how great a challenge we face in correcting this problem. Just 20 percent of fourth-graders, 17 percent of eighth-graders and 12 percent of twelfth-graders are at grade-level proficiency in American history.

    Only one in three fourth-graders can identify the purpose of the Declaration of Independence that we celebrate this week. Less than half understand why George Washington was an important leader in American history. And most fourth-graders don’t know why the Pilgrims left England.

    These are alarming findings. It seems we are doing a poor job of helping the next generation understand both our amazing history and the great privilege of being American.

    Those of us who are proud of our country and committed to passing on the lessons of its past must find creative ways to tell the American story.

    Children’s books can be a good way to introduce young people to American history. As the author of three children’s history books (including my most recent, Yankee Doodle Dandy, about the American Revolution), I have visited classrooms across the country to share the adventures of Ellis the Elephant, my time traveling pachyderm, with four to eight year olds. Most young people I meet are eager to learn and are excited to discover our nation’s pivotal moments.

    Interactive online courses, television programs like Liberty’s Kids, and educational video games like Oregon Trail can also teach critical history lessons. And of course, visits to historic sites like George Washington’s home at Mount Vernon or Independence Hall in Philadelphia are wonderful ways to inspire a love for American history.

    This Independence Day, take a moment to appreciate the courage and sacrifice of those who signed the Declaration of Independence–the youngest just 26 years old. And then, take the opportunity to share with the young Americans in your life the meaning of that extraordinary document.

  37. says

    btw…my BHoF order for proof clads placed on 4/4 is in stock and my cc pinged. Also, today I received 5 proof silver dollars that were ordered on 3/31. Other orders still pending.

  38. Pittsburgh P says

    ThePhelps I see what you are seeing now. I posted that link from my phone and it should’ve taken you to ebay mobile site not a welcome screen. If you use your phone and go back to the link posted yesterday and click it then click on his user name that’s where it states location US… I don’t expect you to do that and it’s probably a glitch on ebay but if you want to check it out.

    Hawkster- I am a die hard Pirates fan and have been all my life and do remember him! Didn’t play too much but that is awesome he was your neighbor!

  39. Hidalgo says

    Can anyone recommend a store where I can purchase the bullion version of the Australian 2014 Wedge Tailed silver Eagle coin?

    I checked GovMInt.com. The price is reasonable. However, the company charges $6.95 for shipping and handling (for one coin) and adds another $1.80 for tax. Total: $38.70. For just $3.30 more, I can buy a PCGS certified version of the same bullion coin.

    Any recommendations?

  40. says

    Mint Website question. I have 9 open orders for BHOF coins. Yesterday 2 orders (04/03 & 04/04) for Clad Proofs went ISAR WITH cancel boxes. Today cancel boxes are GONE. No problem with that, HOWEVER, on both of those order I have orders for Silvers and unc. Clads where the backorder status still shows BUT the cancel boxes are GONE. My other 7 orders still have backorder status with cancel boxes. Has anyone ever seen cancel boxes disappear before an item went ISAR? Is it possible that once my Clad Proofs are shipped that the cancel boxes will reappear for my remaining unshipped items on that specific order?

  41. Pittsburgh P says

    @hildago the govmint site has an exclusive deal to sell in the US…
    Those coins ara also certified by PCGS GEM GRADE but I’ve found out they’re anything below 69. Not 65 like on older coins… they’re also signed by Mercanti so I’d have to say thats your best bet even though I’m not their biggest fan. I wasn’t charged tax either though… You must live in the same state as them.

  42. VA Rich says

    Cag, canx boxes will reappear once the proof clads clear…, I’ve seen it on other mixed bag orders

  43. thePhelps says

    Pitts… you are right on the phone it shows US… must be an eBay issue with their mobile app.

  44. VA Rich says

    & just FYI – regarding JFK mintage, for reference, the RP Buff sold 12+k in the first day and ~21k by the following Sunday & has ended around 43-44k. It’ll be interesting to watch JFK sales to Buff sales for the first week & should be a fair predictor of where JFK may end up

  45. says

    Mk,

    Thanks for providing the link to Louis’ excellent article. I guess a collector now has the opportunity to obtain either astronomy or sports related domed coins. The FIFA World Cup ones are nice looking. The HSN guy has been pushing them on his show.

  46. Sith says

    @longarm – IMHO Steve is not a troll, but I will paraphase an old British quote to dampen the mood, “why are the greatest cries for freedom from the owner of slaves”

  47. Louis says

    Thanks, Mk and Hawkster, for the kind feedback. I just picked up the Galileo coin from the Congo, as you may have seen in the comment I added. It was $80 from Gainesville, and I could not be more pleased with it. I think the shape could apply to other themes too, but those that involves balls and the earth or sky come to mind first. The main point I was trying to convey is its less the novelty of the shape (there were oval and other unusual Roman coins, for ex.) and more the way the shape is used to effectively capture the subject matter. That is why the domed coins have done better than some of others were the shape is not as associated with the theme. I am also very pleased with the French silver astronomy coin. I have a large 3D frame and may try putting all the domed coins together and see how they look. I should say all the silver domed coins, as there is no way I could get the French gold astronomy coin.

  48. Louis says

    By the way, there is a new HR buffalo coin similar to the HR eagle, which I got today. The eagle is better, but it’s a nice coin and just $78-80 from Silvertowne with free shipping.

    Has anyone received their Poseidon coins?
    VA Rich did…

  51. fmtransmitter says

    founding fathers came today…huge folder for two notes…cool that the numbers match between the notes…

  52. Louis says

    Me too on the BHOF clad and silver, but I think it is system generated, not employees working overtime.

  53. VA Rich says

    Louis – PM Poseidon showed last week; they really know how to package for international shipment!

  54. stephen m says

    I would think a back log will justify overtime @ the mint. It’s the government way. It’s your money not theirs.

  55. fmtransmitter says

    @stephen m: They operate outside tax dollars, completely independent of tax money…

  56. stephen m says

    fmxmitter, true but you and I purchase from the mint. It’s our money. I ‘m hoping for a set mintage and not an open window for the gold Kennedy? Either way it will be a nice looking proof gold coin done in .9999 gold.

  57. Howard says

    Have a gut feeling the Mint will discontinue the Kennedy
    this yearbecause of all the hoopla with the many finishes.
    What will this do desirability of this coin in the future??

  58. hw says

    Off Topic. PM Poseidon delivered on June 24. Donald Duck gold coin shipped Friday.

  59. Pittsburgh P says

    Email from Mint this morn.

    Silver unc’s pushed back til 7/31
    Silver Proofs til August

  60. gary says

    What reason would cause the Kennedy half dollar to no longer be minted after 2014? They have ready customers every year for the clad coins produced for collectors/investors. Would make no sense at all to lose the revenue. Only a mandate by Congress to stop producing it will bring about the end of the denomination. The absence of a half dollar in proof sets would make the sets less interesting with the absence of a big coin.

  61. Paul says

    Well I just cancelled my baseball proof and unc silver dollars. The mint changed the date for the 5th time. I do have one of each coin on order, so I will keep those. I figured I would spend the money on some Kennedy sets and hope to have them by Christmas.

  62. says

    @Pittsburg P, my 04/03 order for Silver Proofs pushed back to 08/07. Silver Unc was left along (showing 06/19)

    @Paul, That is the exact reason that I think the Mint is not releasing the Silver Kennedy in August. Before Today’s numbers come out the Mint only has a 32,291 sales cushion over the 400k sales limit for the Silver BHOF. I truly believe that if the Mint said today that they would release the Silver Kennedy with the Gold Kennedy that there would be more than 32k cancellations of the Silver BHOF coins.

  63. Clark says

    In the wake of recent precipitous price decreases for gold $5 BHoFs, I expect large scale cancellations Silver $1 BHoF orders. By the end of this year, silver $1 BHoFs will be easy to come by at slightly over original mint price points.

  64. says

    Mint BHOF excel spreadsheet update for 07/06/14:
    Gold proof BHOF 38,743 down 33
    Gold unc. 21,804 down 29
    Silver proof 283,634 down 501
    Silver unc. 147,911 down 245
    Clad proof 192,976 up 2,744
    Clad unc. 111,229 up 2,071

    Gold BHOF oversold 10,547
    Silver BHOF oversold 31,545

  65. Pittsburgh P says

    Clark I agree with the cancelations but not bein able to get em at mint cost… The gold dropped a ton from their peak but are steady at a few hundred+ over mint issued pricing. I believe the silver will level at about the same ratio if not better. We all have our own thoughts on these but won’t know until years down the road…

  66. jeff says

    Keep cancelling those bhof and wait for the Kennedy’s lol will just make my Silver bhof be worth that more with less mintage. Remember you can’t buy um back there SOLD OUT

    @Gary, one reason is the Mint has too many issues of coin types.
    Lookk at the so often delays of shipping in a timely fashion.

  69. Paul says

    Also, the Mint charged me 4.95 for the bag they shipped 3 months ago, as i cancelled one order.
    jeff: There will not be much of a premium down the road. You’re still looking at 375,000 silver dollars. Probably not to many gold cancellations, I did not cancel mine.

  70. Clark says

    PittsP–I would not be unhappy if you turn out to be correct . Still, 300,000+ silver $1s pouring into homes and businesses this fall is a lot of supply for the “buy and hold” collector demand that we see with the gold $5s. I’m guessing gold $5s graded 70 will stabilize in the high three digits and grade 70 silver $1s in the high double digits AFTER a precipitous drop in price once the mint gets around to fulfilling orders. ER/FS/Baltimore labels should command a hefty premium if current trends hold. JMHO. With all that said, I am scooping up all the gold BHoFs I can while prices are low and will do the same once silver $1 BHoFs dip.

    Jeff,

    I don’t think that HOF cancellations will result in lower mintage figures. There is a wait list of customers that the Mint utilizes until the mintage limits are reached.

  72. Louis says

    What I find odd is the Mint removed the cancel boxes but said they will not ship for a month.
    In the past when the cancel box disappeared the coins were shipped within a week plus or minus.

  73. Ray says

    @Louis , all of my cancel boxes are still there, for gold proof, silver proof/unc.

    Any updates on where they are for shipping gold bhof proofs? Have we started seeing 3/28 order dates start to ship?

  74. says

    Anyone who chooses to cancel their HOF order has already paid the $4.95 shipping charge with a “free” bag thrown in.

  75. Jerry Diekmann says

    Back in 1996 there was a special dime in the uncirulated set only, with a W mint mark, marking the 50th anniversary of the Roosevelt dime. Not much hoopla about that anniversary, but the coins do sell at quite a premium now, after being broken out of the sets. Something like that could probably have worked just as well for the 2014 Kennedy half dollar, but I think the Mint went overboard on marking and marketing these 2014 coins.

  76. JOSEPH says

    So what is the average price of BHOF Gold PCGS PF70 FS and MS70 FS? anyone has an idea?

  77. BFN says

    Well, 28 October is the day for the release of the four Kennedy Half Dollars – shine your running shores and update your calendars….
