So as of late, the store has been having trouble getting quarters and yes even pennies from the bank they use. That said, they bought $200 in 50c pieces to use for change to save on quarters. It's fantastic having that extra slot for them! Love it! And it DID save on quarters. I usually open a few rolls per day, but today I didn't have to. 50c coins makes sense. I didn't see any silver but my eyes and ears are wide open. An older gentlemen asked if I had more because he wanted to buy them but I said we had them because we are short on quarters. So I wasn't able to oblige his request.

I used to buy rolls of 50c coins and use as change every now and then. Still have several rolls laying around. Forgot about doing this during the pandemic but maybe it's time to start again!

There are other businesses in the area also getting 50c coins from the bank. I like the trend. Maybe there will be a demand.

Day 2...didn't even have to open a roll of quarters today. The benefit of the halves have been realized. I cracked open a roll of halves but nothing good.

Day 3...went well. Opened a roll of halves, nothing good. Still haven't opened any quarter rolls yet. I really hope the store keeps using halves. It feels right.

Interesting, sounds like a good plan.

I was reading that mintage numbers for halves this year have increased significantly over previous years. And there have been reports of 2021 rolls being gotten at banks. It would seem the Feds are ordering halves for circulation to help alleviate the quarter shortage (not really a shortage, but rather a circulation problem).

Day 4 in the books! Opened another roll of halves and NO quarters! Actually got a few comments on the halves. I mentioned we're using them because we're having trouble getting quarters. Everyone seemed pleasantly surprised....oh that is a good idea!

Day 5... more of the same. Operation Half Dollar is an astounding success!

Last Friday I was able to purchase a bag of halves from my bank that came off their coin counter. I had been taking quarters into a local Sheetz store for the last couple of months. I mentioned I also had halves if they wanted them. They were more than happy to take and use them they said. So far they have taken $200 of the $500 bag.

I think this is a great opportunity to reintroduce halves into circulation. Maybe they'll stick this time. I heard reports of people getting rolls of 2021 halves at their banks. I am curious if there was a mintage increase?

I believe there was. All you people getting halves circulating again is draining the supply at the Fed!
