Expert Comments

Jaime Hernandez

From 1964 through 2001 most Kennedy Half Dollars have high mintages exceeding over 20 million. While other dates from that time frame have mintages over 200 million. However, the 1988-P Kennedy Half Dollar only has a mintage of about 13.6 million, making it much scarcer compared to most other coins struck from 1964-2001. Beginning in 2002 mintages were drastically reduced.

The 1988-P Kennedy Half Dollar is difficult to find in MS67 condition or higher. Anything grading lower is fairly easy to find or buy very inexpensively.
