US Mint Product Schedule Update
The US Mint has updated their Scheduled Product Listing with dates for products expected to be released in the month of August. As opposed to prior years, the US Mint continues to update this schedule in pieces, providing a look at upcoming release dates one month at a time.
The following represents the updated portion of the US Mint's schedule. (The full schedule can be found here.)
|8/6/2009||Julia Tyler First Spouse Gold Coins|
|8/6/2009||Julia Tyler Bronze Medal|
|8/13/2009||2009 Lincoln Cent Two-Roll Set “Professional Life”|
|8/18/2009||John & Julia Tyler Presidential $1 Coin & First Spouse Medal Set|
|8/20/2009||James K. Polk Presidential $1 Coin Rolls|
The Julia Tyler First Spouse Gold Coins will be released August 6, 2009. This is just a little bit more than a month after the prior release for the Letitia Tyler coins. During 2009, there will be a total of five First Spouse Coins released, rather than the usual four, so the short gap between the latest releases will help put the Mint back on schedule.
The next 2009 Lincoln Cent Two Roll Set featuring the Professional Life design will be released on August 13, 2009. This will also be the date of the launch ceremony to be held in Springfield, Illinois and the circulation release date.
The Presidential Dollar Coin and Medal Set for John and Julia Tyler will be released on August 18, 2009. A separate set featuring John Tyler and his first wife Letitia Tyler has already been released.
The James K. Polk Presidential Dollar Rolls will be released on August 20, 2009. This will also be the date of the official launch ceremony to be held at Polk's home in Columbia, Tennessee and the circulation release date.
One notable change to the schedule which had taken place previously was to switch the expected release date of the 2009 Uncirculated Mint Set to "Fall" after it was previously listed as "Summer". The US Mint has reportedly encountered unique tarnish issues with the 95% copper Lincoln Cents that will be included with this set.
