When the United States Mint last December published its preliminary product schedule for this year, prices for some products like the 2013 commemorative coins were missing.
Available now are introductory and regular commemorative coin prices for this year’s 2013 5-Star Generals coins in silver and clad and the 2013 Girl Scouts of the USA Centennial Silver Dollars.
In total, there are eight coins the U.S. Mint will release this year for commemorative purposes as mandated by Acts passed in Congress and signed into law by the President of the United States. These laws include Public Law 111-262 for the 5-Star Generals Commemorative Coins and Public Law 111-86 for the 2013 Girl Scouts Silver Dollars.
Prices for the two gold 5-Star Generals coins will not get set until the Wednesday before their release, and they will depend upon the prevailing market value of gold at the time. (See this Mint PDF pricing guide for how gold commemorative coin prices are decided.)
Introductory and regular prices for the silver and clad commemorative coins follow.
