2012 Commemorative Coins

Final sales are known for last year’s commemorative coins that the United States Mint stopped selling on Dec. 17, 2012.

Two weekly sales reports from the bureau have since published. The latest one closed the sales totals for the 2012 commemorative coin programs that celebrated the bicentennial of the writing of the American national anthem and the legacy of the U.S. Army Infantry. The former program features Star-Spangled Banner coins while the latter showcases Infantry Solder Silver Dollars.

The following two tables offer the unaudited final sales of the coins and related commemorative products produced and sold by the U.S. Mint. More information about the coins is available by clicking on the links that go to the coin news articles announcing their release.
