Tuesday is the deadline for a US Mint offering dubbed the "Last Opportunity" — a sale that includes nearly twenty products from the Mint’s about to be discontinued 2008-dated coin series.
The last chance sale began more than a month ago with an assortment of State Quarter Greeting Products, First Day Coin Covers, Presidential $1 Coin Covers and Denver or Philadelphia Coin and Die Sets.
The products are being sold at their original price points, but without household limits. A 7-day return policy is in effect for each although the Mint said it will not accept returns unless a product was delivered damaged.
The last chance sale has not caused a collector frenzy by any means. However, several thousand more coin covers have been purchased in recent weeks according to US Mint figures. The most recent totals of the soon to be discontinued coin covers follow:
US Mint Coin Cover Sales as of 6/21
|2008 Presidential Coin Cover Series|
|James Monroe $1||35,930|
|John Quincy Adams||31,244|
|Martin Van Buren||25,476|
|2008 50 State Quarters™ Official First Day Coin Covers|
The Mint does not report die set and greeting card figures weekly.
