US Mint Gold Coin Prices to Rise

The US Mint's current pricing policy for numismatic gold coins allows them to adjust prices as frequently as once per week in response to the change price of gold. The recent surge in the price of gold has brought the average price for the preceding week high enough to cause a price change.

Prices changes have usually become effective around mid morning on Wednesday. There should still be a few hours to place final orders before prices are increased.

The price of the 2009 Ultra High Relief Double Eagle Gold Coin will be raised from $1,339 to $1,389 per coin.

The price of available First Spouse Gold Coins will be raised from $641 and $654 to $665.75 $666.00 and $679 for uncirculated and proof coins, respectively.

This change will bring the prices of these coins back to their highest levels for the year.

Have no idea why they are still churning out the UHRs when they are cutting the other gold products; only 1oz proof buffalo manage to escape the Mint's termination.

The Mint a.k.a. THE TERMINATOR.

Prices raised, as of 1:00 PM ET. They also used the $666.00 price instead of the $665.75 price they used two weeks ago.

I guess they got over the "stigma" a price like $666 entails. That's so funny!
