New collector products with release dates in November and December were added to the U.S. Mint’s product schedule this week.

In a bit of a surprise, no products are currently scheduled for release in October.

Releases include products featuring the final 2012-dated America the Beautiful Quarter, Presidential $1 coin and the five ounce silver uncirculated coin. The annual circulating coin set of all five 2012 America the Beautiful Quarters is also scheduled for the first time.

All of the 2012 First Spouse Gold Coins, however, still have TBD, or "To Be Determined" listings. For more about this year’s 24-karat gold coins, read about what is delaying them.

it’s already near end of 2012, and not 1 single spouse coin has been released.

in addition to the 4 spouses already scheduled in 2013, who has money to collect all 16 (8 proofs and 8 uncirculated) coins next year? especially with gold hanging around at this price, perhaps even higher next year.

thank you US Mint for making this series even more unpopular and difficult to collect!

Hi Werner,
I just got a letter from the Department Of The Treasury updating the Status of the 2012 Spouse Program and Apologizing for the Delay. Once Problems are Resolved both the Proof and the Uncirculated coins will be Struck at the West Point “W” Mint. They have not Yet announced the On-Sales-Dates. The Letter was Dated September 18, 2012.

Also, NGC is adding the Spouse Program to their New Retro Holders:
Due to popular demand, the previously announced NGC Retro Holder program is now expanding to include additional coin types. Reminiscent of the original NGC holder used in 1987, the NGC Retro Holder features a sleek, black core… Coins eligible for the NGC Retro Holder:

•First Spouse Gold ─ NEW!
•Half Ounce $25 Gold Eagles ─ NEW!
•Half Ounce $50 Platinum Eagles ─ NEW!
•Silver Eagles
•Presidential Dollars
•Sacagawea Dollars

Hope this is helpful.

I got the same letter. Well if you can stand the higher costs and the telescoped release dates, these are going to have strong upside potential in a few years. Hang in there dude!
