James Monroe First Day Coin Cover on Sale March 14

The 2008 James Monroe First Day Coin Cover is scheduled to go on sale at the US Mint this Friday, March 14, 2008 at 12:00 Noon ET.

The cover will include two James Monroe Presidential Dollars, one each from the Philadelphia and Denver Mints, on a display card with a 41 cent American Flag postage stamp. The postmark will be February 14, 2008, the first day James Monroe coins were issued.

Overall production is limited to 50,000. The Mint has placed a limit of 10 units per household. The price for each cover is $14.95.

The Mint's product page is available here, although ordering options won't be available until the coins officially go on sale.

The Mint's First Day Cover products for the Presidential Dollars coins have proven popular with collectors. The first three presidents sold out their entire 50,000 production runs. The fourth release for James Madison has sold approximately 40,000 of the maximum 50,000 production since its release on December 11, 2007.

The James Madison First Day Coin Cover is still available for sale here.

Thanks for an informative site. The Mint site provides lack of updates and misinformation.
Their product schedule is behind,
nor does it provide future product availability. My orders places shortly after noon reflect am versus pm. Some items show a shipping date in the past. Surely all the above can not be attibuted to a "problem Jan 15th"
