US Mint Revives Last Chance Sale


US Mint Last Opportunity pageThe US Mint this week revived their Last Chance Sale, a practice which began last year to alleviate the Mint’s inventory of old coin products. The sale will last until June 30.

This year the Mint has re-branded the sale, calling it the "Last Opportunity." A red button with the same name will now greet visitors of their online store. Clicking the button launches a listing of nearly 20 products from 2008 — mostly 25c First Day Coin Covers, $1 Coin Covers and Denver or Philadelphia Coin and Die Sets.

Although the products are being liquidated, expect no special savings. The prices are identical to when they were first introduced in 2008. Any price reduction would have elicited a barrage of complaints from collectors who spent money on the coin products last year.

Similar to before, sale expectations are set with the following statement:


This is a limited-time, first-come, first-served offer and no household limits will apply. A 7-day return policy is in effect. No returns will be accepted unless the product was delivered to the customer damaged.

If a return is made because the product is damaged, we cannot guarantee a replacement. You will receive a refund if we cannot replace your order. The sale of these products will increase any previously stated sales figures.
