US Mint Sales Report Sees 2019 Kennedy Half Dollar Debut

The United States Mint has posted its weekly sales report for April 29-May 5, 2019. In that report, the recently released Kennedy Half Dollar makes a glowing debut while the 2019 Silver Proof Set remains the Mint’s top seller for a third consecutive week.

A reported earlier in the week, the 2019 Kennedy Half Dollar two-roll sets and 200-count bag from both the Denver and Philadelphia Mints. Clearly collectors have taken to them as the two products sold a combined 14,516 units of these products (11,561 two-roll sets and 2,955 bags). That’s a total of 1.053 million coins in the first week, making it the third fastest selling release of these products since 2011.

Put another way, the 2019 Kennedy two-roll sets were the number 2 seller for the week while the bag sales were fourth on the list. That’s impressive given they were event available at the first of this report window.
