The mint does roll coin, but only to sell for a premium on their website. Other rolls are done by contracted companies who then ship them to banks.
@cpm9ball has collected bags of Kennedy Half's in the past.....
called end toning nothing wrong with that I have rolls of Wheaties from mint 1937-1942? no idea what's in them
I routinely bought bags of SQ's, Kennedy half dollars and Sac dollars from the Mint to search for high grade specimens to submit for grading. While the bags are sold for a small premium by the Mint, it is the cheapest way to obtain bulk quantities of each date/mintmark, and it takes only a few to grade MS68 for the submitter to make a decent profit on each bag.
Personally, I don't recommend buying Mint rolls because the premium over face value is considerably higher and from my previous experience with buying rolls of SQ's from the Mint, they are unlikely to appreciate in value unless you expect to live another 50-100 years. ~ Chris
