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

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

Expect the United States Mint to raise prices Wednesday, Oct. 14, on nearly two dozen collectible gold coins.

Current U.S. Mint pricing is based on a weekly average of London gold that’s within the range of $1,100.00 to $1,149.99 an ounce. Gold prices this week have marked more than three-month highs, pulling the average up and into a coin pricing tier that’s $50 higher.

Update: As expected, the Mint increased prices Wednesday. The new prices are shown in the ‘To’ column further below.

Gold at this writing is trading above $1,166 an ounce. If Wednesday’s LBMA PM gold price remains atop $1,150 an ounce, expect the following increases in coin prices:
