US Mint Product Schedule Update
Late last week, the US Mint updated their 2010 scheduled products listing to indicate release dates for products through April. Previously, release dates had only been available through the end of January.
The 2010 Presidential Dollar Proof Set will be released on February 11, 2010. This is one of the component proof sets that the US Mint releases each year, which contain a portion of the coins that are issued in the full set. Last year the Presidential Dollar Proof Set was released around the same date and priced at $14.95. The 2009 set still remains available for sale.
The Millard Fillmore Presidential Dollar Rolls will be released on February 18, 2010. These rolls contain 25 coins from either the Philadelphia or Denver Mint and in the past have been priced at $35.95 each. Last year the US Mint quickly sold out of the rolls offered for William Henry Harrison and John Tyler after reaching sales of 30,000 rolls for each mint. Curiously, the WHH rolls fetch big premiums on the secondary market, while the John Tyler rolls do not. The number of rolls available was increased for the next two Presidents, which still remain available for sale at the Mint.
The 2010 American Veterans Disabled for Life Silver Dollar will be released on February 25, 2010. About a month later on March 23, 2010, the 2010 Boy Scouts of American Centennial Silver Dollar will be released. These two coins will be the only commemorative coins issued by the US Mint for the year. Both programs include a maximum authorized mintage of 350,000.
The 2010 Abigail Fillmore First Spouse Gold Coin and Medal will be released on March 4, 2010. This will start the year for the 24 karat gold coin series featuring the First Spouses. On the same date, sales of the Anna Harrison Gold Coin will likely end. The uncirculated version of the Anna Harrison coin will be one to watch into the closing days, as it seems poised to mark a fresh mintage low for the series.
Lastly, the Presidential $1 Coin and Medal Set featuring Millard and Abigail Fillmore will be released on March 26, 2010. This set contains an uncirculated (satin finish) Presidential Dollar and First Spouse Bronze Medal for the Presidential couple. Last year these products were priced at $8.95 each.
As the release dates come closer and further information is available, there will be a separate post exploring each of these products.
