The United States Mint began sales of 2011 Kennedy Half Dollar numismatic bags and rolls on February 15, 2011. Since the half dollar is not issued for circulation, US Mint products are the only source for acquiring newly issued coins for the series.
Available products include 200-coin bags, containing 100 coins each from the Philadelphia and Denver Mints, and two roll sets, which include 20-coin rolls from each mint facility. The bags or wrappers include an indication of the year, mint mark, and face value of the contents. The 200-coin bags are priced at $134.95 and the two roll sets are priced at $34.95.
To coincide with the start of sales for this years offering, the US Mint stopped selling the 2010 Kennedy Half Dollar Two Roll Set. The 200-coin bags had previously sold out.
The Kennedy Half Dollar has been issued since 1964. The obverse features the bust of President John F. Kennedy by Gilroy Roberts and the reverse features the Presidential Seal designed by Frank Gasparro.
