One of the U.S. Mint’s most talked about products of the year is no longer available. The online ordering option for the 2015-W $100 American Liberty High Relief Gold Coin is gone. Its product page is now showing "currently unavailable."

This step is the last before a product officially sells out. Of course, it’s possible that ordering could return. Here’s the Mint’s definition for its unavailable status:

"Currently Unavailable products have no remaining inventory in our warehouse and no additional production is scheduled. Additional inventory may be produced or become available. If so, customers who opt to receive an email notice will be notified that we are taking orders again."

Latest Sales

The one ounce, 24–karat gold piece surged in its start, scoring sales of more than 35,000 within 4 hours of its July 30 release. By the first four days, nearly 42,000 of the maximum 50,000 had been claimed.

Demand for them then slowed. Several weekly reports in August and in September actually yanked its sales total lower. Then there was the resurgence. A color catalog the U.S. Mint mailed to its customers about 1-1/2 weeks ago boosted orders. The high relief coin was prominently featured on page 6 of the brochure. It presented two large, eye-catching images of the coin. Last week’s U.S. Mint sales report had the total at 44,843 coins, up 1,923 for the biggest 7-day increase since the launch week. Figures for this week have sales up another 578 to 45,421 coins.

2015-W $100 American Liberty Gold Coins debuted at $1,490.00. The price changed several times since as gold has moved both higher and lower. The coin was last listed for $1,590.00. Its product page now has a ‘Remind Me’ button that lets customers sign up for an email message should more become available.

It took what, 2 to 3 months to sell out 30,000 much hyped first ever $100.00 24k hi releif U.S. Gold Coin? To think I sat there waiting for High Noon hoping to get one only to find out in the end I could have waited. At least I got one of the jewels of the bunch. An NGC graded MS70 PL Early Release. I have a little over $1,450.00 in it and I have seen the coin in the same grade going for between $5,000 and $10,000. So, in the end it was worth it. Should got 2 and hoped they both graded the same.
What I’m really excited about is next year and I hope the Mint really gets innovated and doesn’t dissapoint and comes out with coins like other Mints have been producing for the last 5yrs. or so. Hi Releif in 1 to 10 oz, Fractional Set’s, ect.
There’s always hope, I hope.

Still waiting for the coins I ordered in early September from First Coin Company. Last email from them said Thanksgiving to maybe before Christmas. Preordering, Ha! I told them I might be dead before I get them. I turn 60 on November 6th. I can only hope and wait. Best of luck to those that Preorder outside a well established Mint.

Right before the price of gold coins goes down… Of course!

Danny – It is always a better deal to order directly form the US Mint. Many of the what I will kindly call advertised sellers are overpriced and take advantage of the inexperienced collector.
