2015-W $100 American Liberty High Relief Gold Coin in Hand

Prices on U.S. Mint collectible gold coins, like the high relief 2015-W $100 American Liberty, are likely to increase on Wednesday

With gold posting strong gains in recent days, there’s a good chance that the United States Mint on Wednesday will increase prices on its collectible gold coins.

The agency last changed its prices on July 29, reducing them by as much as $50 for every ounce of gold they contained. The adjustments happened as the weekly average of LBMA gold tumbled to within the range of $1,050.00 to $1,099.99 an ounce. The yellow metal has since rebounded into a higher pricing tier, although prices on Wednesday must still be considered.

The bottom line, expect pricing hikes if Wednesday’s PM gold price is at or above $1,100 an ounce. Spot gold at this writing is edging lower toward $1,116 an ounce.

This coin news article will be edited to show what actually happened. Based on current conditions, the table below offers the most likely changes for each gold product.

I’m glad I got all my Mint Silver, Gold and Platinum coins when I did. Plus, coins from other sources. I’ll finish off my Star Trek Transporter sets and wait to see what next year brings.

So if we have the liberty coin on backorder, does that mean we’re stuck paying the higher price or are we locked in when we ordered?

Mister… Good News. The price is locked in when the order is placed.
