Collectible proof and uncirculated 2015-W $10 Jacqueline Kennedy Gold Coins go on sale this Thursday, June 25.
The pair are limited to a combined maximum of 30,000 coins with the ratio of proof to uncirculated determined by collector demand. Struck in one-half ounce of 24-karat gold at the U.S. Mint in West Point, recent spousal coins have had trouble reaching sales of just a few thousand … but then they haven’t featured Jacqueline Kennedy, who ranks as one of the most popular First Ladies and is admired by many. There’s a higher degree of anticipation for these issues.
Prices for the two coins will be established on Wednesday, based on the latest 7-day average of London gold, and their price can change weekly. Current prices of already released spousal coins are based on an average of the precious metal that sits within the range of $1,150.00 to $1,199.99 an ounce. Today, the proofs are $790 and the uncirculated issues are $770.
When launched at noon ET on Thursday, Jacqueline Kennedy gold coins will be available from the Mint’s spousal webpage found here.
We’ll talk more about the coins on their release day. This week we’ll also discuss designs for the Nancy Reagan First Spouse Gold Coins. Until then, here are last week’s five most read articles:
