Place the ham and onion halves in a large cooking pot or Dutch oven and pour the Coca-Cola over them. Bring to a boil, then reduce the heat and simmer covered loosely for 2 and a half hours.
Heat the oven to 500 degrees Fahrenheit and remove the ham from the pot, keeping the liquid. Trim the skin with a knife to leave a thin layer of fat. Score diagonally with diamond shapes and insert a clove into each diamond. Spread the molasses over the ham, then pat with the mustard powder and sugar.
Place the ham in a roasting pan lined with foil. Cook for 10 minutes, or until the glaze is bubbly.
