The United States Mint has announced that they will be lifting the household ordering limits on the 50th Anniversary Kennedy Half Dollar Uncirculated Coin Set and Silver Coin Collection effective Monday, November 17, 2014 at 12:01 AM.
This year, the US Mint created three separate products to mark the 50th anniversary of the Kennedy Half Dollar. The Uncirculated Coin Set containing two clad coins with an uncirculated finish went on sale July 24. Initially, the sets were offered with an ordering limit of five sets per household and without a stated product limit. A product limit of 200,000 units was subsequently established.
A three-quarter ounce gold proof coin was offered for sale starting on August 5. The initial ordering limit was five coins per household for online and phone orders. The ordering limit was lifted on October 14. The product remains without a stated product limit.
The final product was the silver coin collection containing 90% silver half dollars struck at four different facilities with four different finishes. The collection went on sale on October 28, carrying an ordering limit of five units per household and product limit of 300,000 units.
The sales levels from the weekly reports for each of the products are reproduced below. The removal of the limit for the gold proof coin last month did not have much of an impact on sales. However, the removal of the ordering limit for the clad and silver sets may have more of an impact due to the lower price points and the stated product limits.
