On Friday, the United States Mint updated its release schedule, adding dates in November for products that include Fort Moultrie quarters, the 2016-W Walking Liberty Half Dollar Centennial Gold Coin and 2016-W Proof Silver Eagles.

Up first for the month with a Nov. 14 release are rolls and bags of circulating quality South Carolina’s Fort Moultrie quarters, the last of the five quarter-dollars for this year. Available products will range in price from $18.95 to $46.95 and contain from 40 to 120 quarters that come from U.S. Mint facilities in Denver, Philadelphia and San Francisco.

2016 Walking Liberty Gold Coin

Next up on Nov. 17 is the Walking Liberty Gold Coin. The gold piece commemorates the 100th anniversary of the Walking Liberty half dollar, which was struck in .900 fine silver and produced for circulation from 1916 to 1947. The centennial rendition is in .9999 fine, 24-karat gold and shares the original 50-cent designs.

Mintage and ordering limits are yet to be unveiled. Its price will be set based on a weekly average of London gold, according to this pricing schedule. If gold remains within the range of $1,250.00 to $1,299.99 an ounce, it’ll cost $890.

Struck at the West Point Mint, the anniversary half dollar is one of three gold coins that celebrate the 1916 renaissance in American coinage. Mercury Dime and Standing Liberty Quarter Centennial Gold Coins were released earlier this year.

November Product Releases

Other products scheduled for release in November include a 10-coin set of circulating 2016 quarters, with 5 quarters from the Denver Mint and 5 quarters from the Philadelphia Mint, and two silver sets with 30th anniversary proof Silver Eagles.

Here’s a table listing the Mint’s products for next month:

Beautiful design for sure. The mintage will be extremely high so no need for a first day feeding frenzy lol

Great coin. And $260 over spot. For $890, you can buy some very nice and rare Walking Liberty Silver half dollars. You could buy a 2016 US 1/2 oz gold eagle and a very nice, but common Walking Liberty Silver half dollar.

$890=$1780 spot….he mint must be including a tube of astrolube with every delivery. They are becoming so unrealistic. Bad enough the Proof ASE is almost 3x spot………BOYCOTT seems to be a valid idea. Especially with the funky RR set & m,intage @ 15oK yeah it will sell out, after Trump is elected…..and Hillary publishes her Emails, and MCDonald’s goes vegan

At that price, we’re out. Well Set, I believe you were correct regarding the scale. If the mintage were 50,000 *’across all options’; then, possibly we might, might purchase. Being a business strike is considered a hybrid coin, whereby serious collectors do not recognize any value.

Whistler –

Too funny man! LOL. A tube of lube & a coupon for a free prostate exam with every purchase of this coin! Courtesy of the U.S. Mint (or a free plastic U.S.Mint tote bag made in Vietnam like they did a few years ago – what a mess that was!).

What’s up with the burnished Silver Eagle. I don’t remember it being sold this late in the year since 2006.

Whistler October 10, 2016 at 4:19 pm

Yeah Seth like I want to go to the market with a US MINT bag, all it needs is a little place to put, hey folks, rob me if you can!!

Put in a reminder for 11/17. Can’t wait to complete the set. If only the US would return to good, aesthetic depictions of liberty for all coinage and remove all living (or formerly) living persons from circulating coins and currency…

I agree that it is a nice coin and that the mintage will probably be high.
