Monday, Dec. 31, 2012 is the last day to buy 2011-dated gold coins, silver coins and annual sets.
The U.S. Mint will accept orders for these numismatic products until 12:00 noon ET, and then they will be available only from the secondary market.
This U.S. Mint "Last Chance Sale" is the final in a grouping of product deadlines announced in early November. The most recent deadline occurred on Dec. 17, 2012 when U.S. Mint sales ended for all 2012 commemorative coins and the 2011 September 11 National Medals.
This last listing includes the most numismatic products as the U.S. Mint clears out its older inventory and readies for a new year of coins and annual sets that sport the 2013 date.
A breakdown follows for the fifteen products going off sale. Included are the prices, authorized mintages and current U.S. Mint sales figures as of December 26, 2012.
