On Wednesday, Jan. 18, the United States Mint is likely to increase prices on 17 numismatic gold products.
The agency’s collections of gold coins have prices that can change weekly depending on the trending value of gold. The U.S. Mint most recently raised prices on Jan. 4 when the metal’s average climbed to between $1,150.00 and $1,199.99 an ounce. Gold has since jumped to a 2-month high and is now trading near $1,214 an ounce.
If Wednesday’s LBMA gold price for the PM stays above $1,200.00 an ounce, then prices of U.S. gold coins will increase by as much as $50 for every ounce of the precious metal they contain.
The following table lists current and possible coin prices:
|Current Prices||Likely Prices|
|2016-W Walking Liberty Gold Half-Dollar||$840.00||$865.00|
|2016-W Standing Liberty Gold Quarter||$447.50||$460.00|

If gold coin prices move higher Wednesday, it will mark the second time this year. Last year, the U.S. Mint made eleven pricing adjustments, raising them six times and reducing them five times. In 2015, the agency made fourteen changes, dropping them in eight instances and increasing them six times.
Update (Jan. 18): As expected, the U.S. Mint increased its gold coin prices.
