    When I look through halves, I always find tons of 2018 halves. I have been keeping them because after 2002 are NIFCs. I usually find an average of two per roll so they aren’t really that rare... Are they worth keeping?

    Thanks,
    Matthew

    So these NIFC coins are coming out of mint set people can't give away. So they're breaking the coins out and just spending them.

    My guess is that thousands upon thousands upon thousands are dumped back into circulation from bags and rolls that are ordered from the Mint but do not grade high enough. That's what I used to do! ~ Chris

    That would make sense. Thanks!

    Technically they are worth more than 50 cents. But who is going to buy them?
    A dealer doesn't want them for 55 or 60 cents because there's no resale market and even if there was, there's no profit even at a dollar a coin.
    You could hold them for 20 years and maybe get a dollar a coin, if they ever stop making them, but 50 cents today is probably worth more than $1 in 20 years anyway. I would keep the very best highest grade coin, and spend the rest.

    The only ones that will be profitable are those that grade MS68 or higher. ~ Chris
