    Not what I was looking for.
    I wonder how much of these I will be seeing?

    Bummer, I would be tempted to save one roll & toss the rest back.

    Yes, I would save a roll or two. Plus, my local non brick and mortar coin dealer will buy the occasional roll of Uncirculated NIFCs for a slight premium ($15-$20) per roll.

    I'm seeing more solid 2018 boxes of DIMES lately if that helps ease the pain any.

    Get some plastic coin flips, and print off some little cards to put in with them that say "Brilliant Uncirculated ______" and sell them at a premium. New collectors eat that stuff up.

    I do 2 per week as well.
    I did not expect demand for halfs in my area would ever require this.
    I remember reading a few years back on here that 1996 was the go to year when the Fed had to shore up supply.
    The way I understand NIFC is that the US mint is the sole issuer of todays half dollar coin.
    That must be incorrect, as this was a Loomis labelled box, which has always been the coin supplier.

    Im hoping to never see another!

    yes and no (i hope I understand this right). The mint mints all coins nifc or not. They haven't sent out halves for circulation since 2001. They sell the halves direct.

    However, my guess is the demand for halves was less than expected this year and sent the surplus out for circulation. Remember That loomis, brings, Garda or Dunbar do not make the coin. The U.S. Mint mints the coin and sends it to these carriers to distribute

    Dangit. Another one.
    That is 2 in two weeks.
    Very strange, considering I have never seen even one before this.
    I have a standing order of 2 boxes per week.
    The other box this week yielded 2 40%ers. Last week was a very respectable 9 40's and 2 90% JFK's.
    It would be a nice little vein without the brand new Fed dump.
    Sure. I look for a blank or clipped planchet, or maybe a die clash or rotated die. Not much of that happening, though.

    It could also be some bulk buyer looking for high grades to slab. This many seems less likely, because of the cost differential after buying/sorting/dumping.

    Solid Box of Half Dollars

    Any guesses on when we will start seeing any new denom of 2019 coins? Is there going to be any mint changes, just like the 2009 cents were, in the works?
    I guess April 1, 2019.
    What's your gut guess?

    It looks like the US Mint about doubled their production #s for halves for 2018. Probably why more are showing up in boxes.
