Sales End Tomorrow for US Mint Last Opportunity Products
Sales will officially end on December 31, 2009 at 3:00 PM ET for products included in the US Mint online catalog's Last Opportunity section. The products include 2007 Presidential Dollar bags and rolls, 2008 First Spouse Bronze Medals, and the 2009 Ultra High Relief Double Eagle Gold Coin.
The Presidential Dollar products include 250-coin bags and 25-coin rolls for Thomas Jefferson and James Madison from either the Philadelphia or Denver Mint. These products were originally released back on August 16 and November 15, 2007 and have been available for sale since. The sales totals to date are listed below. The 25-coin rolls have sold in far greater numbers than recent releases. The US Mint stopped offering the 250-coin bags after 2008.

The 2009 Ultra High Relief Gold Coin has attracted the most attention of the current Last Opportunity products. The US Mint had announced on December 10, 2009 that the coin would only be available until the end of the year. When the announcement was made, I had put together a UHR Double Eagle time line. The most recent reported sales figure for the coin came in at 112,065.
