leave a comment »

WASHINGTON – The United States Mint is pleased to announce that it is reducing or maintaining 2011 prices for some of its most popular products to be offered in 2012.  The bureau was able to set these lower prices and maintain others by refining the product costing process, taking advantage of current lower prices for precious metals and negotiating better pricing from its suppliers.

“We hope these prices will allow us to attract more Americans to coin collecting, while increasing collecting opportunities for our current customer base,” said United States Mint Deputy Director Richard A. Peterson.

Products with reduced prices in 2012 include the following:
United States Mint Uncirculated Coin Set® – reduced from $31.95 to $27.95
America the Beautiful Quarters Three-Coin SetTM – reduced from $14.95 to $9.95
America the Beautiful Quarters Uncirculated Coin SetTM – reduced from $21.95 to $12.95
America the Beautiful Quarters® 100-Coin Bag – reduced from $49.95 to $34.95
American Eagle Proof Silver Dollar – reduced from $68.45 to $61.95*
Presidential and Native American $1 Coin Rolls – reduced from $39.95 to $32.95
United States Mint Presidential $1 Coin Proof SetTM – reduced from $19.95 to $18.95
Presidential $1 Coin Uncirculated SetTM – reduced from $19.95 to $16.95
United States Mint Presidential $1 Coin & First Spouse Medal SetTM – reduced from $14.95 to $9.95

In addition, 2012 prices will be the same for the United States Mint Proof Set®, priced at $31.95, and the United States Mint Silver Proof Set®, priced at $67.95.*

* Pricing for products containing silver, gold and platinum are subject to change throughout the year based on market volatility.
