US Mint Product Schedule Update, Another Price Increase

A few days ago the United States Mint updated their product release schedule to include specific release dates for several products to be released in March and April. Yesterday, I wrote about the Abigail Fillmore First Spouse Gold Coins, today I wanted to mention the other products.

The US Mint now has the following upcoming products with exact release dates specified:
3/18/2010 Abigail Fillmore First Spouse Gold Coins
3/18/2010 Abigail Fillmore Bronze Medal
3/23/2010 2010 Boy Scouts of America Centennial Silver Dollar
3/26/2010 Presidential Dollar Coin & First Spouse Medal Set - Fillmore
3/26/2010 Women Airforce Service Pilots Bronze Medal
4/2/2010 Millard Fillmore Dollar Coin Cover
4/13/2010 2010 Presidential Dollar Uncirculated Set (P&D)
4/19/2010 America the Beautiful Quarters Bags and Two-Roll Set - Hot Springs (AR)

Following the release of the Abigail Fillmore coins and medal, the next product will be the 2010 Boy Scouts Silver Dollar. The release date had previously been known as March 23, 2010 and the pricing had been separately published. I will have a full post on the coins next week, leading into the release.

On March 26, 2010, the Presidential Dollar Coin and First Spouse Medal Set featuring Millard and Abigail Fillmore will be released. This will be the first product released for the year, which contains a satin finish coin. Until recently, there had been a persistent rumor that the finish would no longer be used. Pricing for the product has not yet been announced, but based on the $2 increase for the individual Abigail Fillmore medal, I think the set price may also creep higher.

The Millard Fillmore Dollar Coin Cover will be released on April 2, followed by the 2010 Presidential Dollar Uncirculated Set on April 13. The latter will likely prove to be a popular seller, since it will mark the first appearance of the 2010-P & D Satin Finish Abraham Lincoln Presidential Dollars.

On April 19, 2010 the first of the America the Beautiful Quarters will debut with the Hot Springs Quarter products. The US Mint recently published notice of this product and pricing in the Federal Register. The notice mentions the Two Roll Set will be priced at $32.95, representing the same price for the comparable two roll set from last year. However, the 100-coin bags from the Philadelphia and Denver Mints will be priced at $35.95 per bag, representing a price increase of $3 from last year's similar product. The larger sized 1,000-coin bags were not mentioned in the notice.

One upcoming product which has still not been listed on the 2010 scheduled products listing is the 2010 Lincoln Cent Two Roll Set. On the day of the official launch ceremony for the new design, the US Mint had mentioned plans for the set. Subsequent reports suggested that the set would be released in the month of March.

I'm not sure, but bring an extra sandwich just in case.

With the delays in getting coins out this year and the recently announced price increases --- coupled with the tough economy, it's going to be a challenge for collectors to keep up with the releases.
Aside from the Lincoln dollar/gold coins later this year, I'm not sensing any sellouts or even near sellouts. I will need to be more picky than in recent memory.

I don't have any information on this yet. The US Mint usually announces the details of the ceremonies a week or two beforehand.
