In what has become a traditional end-of-year reminder, the United States Mint on Wednesday added a new section to its website that lists dozens of "last chance" products.
These include popular annual sets, gold and silver coins, America the Beautiful quarters, Presidential $1 coins, September 11 silver medals and all of its Infantry Soldier Silver Dollar and Star-Spangled Banner commemorative coins. End of sale periods for the last chance products range from as early as November 14 to as late as December 31.
The Mint’s last opportunity product page warns that the offers are limited-time, first-come, first-served and without household ordering limits. It adds that it will honor a 7-day return policy. If a return is made because of damaged product, the U.S. Mint will not guarantee a replacement but it will offer a refund.

Wish they’d do this for coins they drop during the year, too (like uncirculated spouse coins, for example).
I don’t recall Lucy @ Lucretia being available that long. Seems they don’t are or don’t really want to sell FS. The rest of the offerings have been flogged to death. Guessing the mint way overproduced on all but FS which for whatever reason were underproduced. Someday down the line I suspect the FS will be what we all will wish we had purchased when we could have.
I like that they are putting a deadline on the 5 oz ones. This gives some hope for the future if mintages will vary.
I think you’re right. Like the quarters the first spouse was overkill and choosing gold was a big mistake, especially when the president coins were only $1. They would have sold a lot more had they used silver instead. But it’s Congress that made that decision, not the mint. I still look at Alice Paul as a commemorative coin and not a first spouse coin and I think it will have a higher secondary market value than any of the others. I think we have another 6 months to go before they kill Alice off.
Wow, the fact they are cutting off 2011 5 oz ATBs is interesting. Still not sure if I was smart or stupid buying this series.
It’s like art – collect what you like and what you can afford.
