Comments

The reprisal of KM#202b issue mintage after 1977 as KM#A202b.

Gilroy Roberts monogram, which some confuse for a hammer and sickle, appears on the truncation.


Type II Proofs have clearer mint marks than Type I Proofs.

Because of low demand, no Half Dollars were struck for general circulation in 1987 and again from 2002 to 2020. During this period the coin could be found in mint sets or purchased from the Mint in rolls and bags, at a premium above face value. Starting in 2021, the Federal Reserve resumed ordering these coins for general circulation.
