John Tyler Presidential Dollar Rolls Back on Sale?
After apparently selling out more than a week ago, the John Tyler Presidential Dollar Rolls are now back on sale at the US Mint.
On June 2, 2009, the US Mint product pages for the Philadelphia and Denver rolls had both clearly indicated that the products were "Sold Out." Some time today, ordering options for the products reappeared and the sold out message was removed. This is not the first time the US Mint has listed a product as "Sold Out" only to have it return for another round of sales without explanation.
After the coins were listed as "sold out" on the US Mint's website, secondary market prices quickly rose. Days after the coins were no longer available at the Mint, some individual rolls had sold on eBay for prices in excess of $100. This compares to the original offering price of $35.95. Even with the rolls back on sale, they are still being bid up to the $60 to $70 level.
If you missed ordering your John Tyler Presidential Dollar Rolls, go to the US Mint website where they are still available at the original price. You can find the Philadelphia roll at the regular product page here. The Denver rolls are also available via the product page, although the page is not listed in the John Tyler Presidential Dollar section. You can find the Denver rolls here.
