The United States Mint released new sales figures for its three 50th Anniversary Kennedy Half-Dollar products featuring 7 coins in varying finishes and compositions.
Orders slowed from a week earlier, expectantly so for the Kennedy silver coin collection as the days lengthen from its release on Oct. 28.
The two other anniversary products, out for much longer, enjoyed a bit of a sales resurgence because, in part, they were prominently featured in the Mint’s 2014 Fall Catalog which hit mailboxes about two weeks ago. Based on the latest figures, it looks like orders from the catalog peaked toward the end of October. In summary, here’s a table showing 50th Anniversary Kennedy product sales as of Nov. 9.
|Kennedy Half-Dollar Silver Coin Collection||125,147||12,655||137,802||300,000|
|Kennedy Half-Dollar Gold Proof Coin||66,054||493||66,547||None|
|Kennedy Half-Dollar Uncirculated Coin Set||141,808||4,414||146,222||200,000|
Based on their limits, the silver coin collection is at 45.9% of maximum sales and the uncirculated coin set is at 73.1% of maximum sales.
