Ahead of the planned launch of the 2014 50th Anniversary Kennedy Half Dollar Silver Coin Collection, the United States Mint has reminded customers to log into their online account to reset their password if they have not done so already. This will ensure the most streamlined, expedited shopping experience once the eagerly anticipated product goes on sale.
“The U.S. Mint knows our customers are eagerly awaiting the launch of the Kennedy Half-Dollar Silver Coin set and we want them to be able to purchase the set as easily as possible,” said Marc Landry, Acting Associate Director for Sales and Marketing. “While we have measures in place to alleviate call center wait times, the easiest way to order the product is to do so online. By logging on and resetting their passwords before Tuesday, Oct. 28, customers will have a better experience when the product launches this Tuesday.”
The United States Mint launched a new retail website and order management system on October 1, 2014 which provided a range of upgrades aimed at improving the shopping experience for customers. As part of the upgrade, all existing account holders were required to reset their passwords when logging into their account for the first time under the new system.
The steps to reset passwords as as follows:
- Use your existing U.S. Mint Login
- Enter your existing password
- You will then be prompted to reset your password
The 50th Anniversary Kennedy Half Dollar Silver Coin Collection is issued to mark the 50th anniversary of the Kennedy Half Dollar first released in 1964. Each of the four 90% silver coins in the collection features the original portrait design by Gilroy Roberts.
The four coins in the set are each from a different US Mint facility and carry a different finish. The coins include a reverse proof coin from West Point, a proof coin from Philadelphia, an enhanced uncirculated coin from San Francisco, and an uncirculated coin from Denver.
The collection is priced at $99.95 each and carries an ordering limit of five per household. The product will officially go on sale next week on Tuesday, October 28, 2014 at 12:00 Noon ET.
