Prices are changing for several 2015-dated collectible products that are made and sold by the United States Mint. The cost for those with silver coins is moving lower, for the most part, while prices for some annually issued sets is rising.
News of the changes come from a U.S. Mint notice, dated Jan. 20, that is scheduled to appear this Wednesday in the Federal Register, the official source of notices by government agencies.
Lower prices have already been realized for this year’s proof American Silver Eagle and Congratulations Set with both now released. Perhaps the best news is the Silver Eagle pricing. It’s staying at where it was last adjusted in December when silver prices were much lower (silver has surged nearly $2.50 this year).
