On Wednesday, Dec. 30, the U.S. Mint will stop selling products with 2015-dated American Silver Eagles and Commemorative Coins and then on Thursday, Dec. 31, it will halt sales of six 2014-dated annual sets.

"With 2016 just around the corner, the close of this year will mark the last time many of our products will be available for purchase," the U.S. Mint said Saturday in an email promotion. "Don’t miss this opportunity to capture these limited edition products before they go off sale forever."

The products and their off-sale dates and times include:

Off Sale 12/30 at Noon ET Off Sale 12/31 3 PM ET
2015 Marshals Commemorative Coins 2014 Proof Set
2015 March of Dimes Commemorative Coins 2014 Mint Set
2015 Proof American Silver Eagle 2014 Silver Proof Set
2015 Uncirculated American Silver Eagle 2014 ATB Proof Set
2013-2015 Congratulations Sets 2014 ATB Silver Proof Set
2014-2015 Annual Unc Dollar Coin Sets 2014 Pres $1 Coin Proof Set
2014 Limited Edition Silver Proof Set  

 

Sales of a year’s American Silver Eagles usually go well into the following year. The Mint is citing a new law as the reason to end sales of products with Silver Eagles struck this year and earlier. Mandated by Public Law 114-94, next year’s collectible editions must have a smooth edge with lettering noting the 30th anniversary of the first issue.

To order any of the products above, visit the U.S. Mint’s online store, right here, or call 1-800-USA-MINT (872-6468).

Quick question. Are all 2015 gold and silver coins not sold melted down and used for 2016?

Mike Unser & Jeffrey Razook – It is somewhat disconcerting that the U.S. Mint doesn’t quickly melt all gold & silver commemorative coins left over at the end of sales after December 30. This is a situation just asking for abuse (theft). Just research the archives of articles by the largest numismatic publication in the world – Coin World weekly newspaper/magazine since 1960 when they started publication & the number of inside theft jobs by U.S. Mint employees & U.S. Mint Police even recently arrested for taking error coins outside the Mint & selling to dealers! This practice is well documeted & very sad. The presidential dollars without edge lettering is one small example of Mint employees & U.S. Mint Police officers taking advantage of the system. The U.S. Mint’s at Philadelphia & Denver are not as secure as the West Point or San Francisco Mint for sure. I have… Read more »

Silver planchets must come from sub-contractors, elsewise why is there contantly an inability to keep up with demand?

Just asking.

Yes, I am anxiously awaiting the next discovery of hoards of 1895-O Morgans found in the bowels of the vault.

Also still awaiting the release of the 2007-2012 clad coins that must be hoarded somewhere, as they sure have not yet made it into circulation in my neck of the woods.

Boz – You may never see a lot of the $1 coins from 2007 through 2012 in circulation , including presidential $1 coins, Sacagawea $1 coins & Native American $1 coins. The reason is simple but sad – the public & merchants in USA don’t like using them, much like the old, ugly Susan B. Anthony $1 coins from 1979-1981 ! The Federal Reserve System had to build a new $600,000 building with vault in Dallas, Texas to store the approximately $1.2 Billion of the $1 coins in 2012 which is where they sit today gathering dust. They can’t be melted down either because the U.S. government has already received the seigniorage profit on those coins when they were released originally to the 12 Federal Reserve Banks across the U.S. Treasury Secretary Timothy F. Geithner signed an order back then stopping the Mint from issuing anymore of these coins for… Read more »

Looks like the 2014 Silver Proof set recently sold out. Not a record low mintage.

2014 mint set has to have ended up as the lowest minted unc. set in over 50 years. 2014 Proof set mintage has to be even lower than the 2012. Can’t wait for the final numbers!!!!
