Circulating coins are the coins that the United States Mint produces for everyday transactions. Circulating coins are also included in the United States Mint’s annual coin sets, which are the staple of coin collecting.
Note: Kennedy Half Dollars and $1 coins are circulating quality produced as collectibles, not for everyday transactions. However, they may be still used as legal tender.
