July is normally quiet numismatically with fewer United States Mint product releases as coin collectors focus more on enjoying the summer than on their hobby. This July looks to be about the same, except for some series-ending coin launches early in the month that’ll create some buzz.
The U.S. Mint this week updated its product schedule to show July 1, 2016 as the release date for coins featuring Ronald and Nancy Reagan.
Product options include 2016 Ronald Reagan Presidential $1 Coins in circulating quality and 2016 $10 Nancy Reagan First Spouse Gold Coins in collector qualities of proof and uncirculated. The coins are the very last issues from the 10-year series of Presidential dollars and First Spouse Gold Coins.
The U.S. Mint earlier today also updated product pages for the two 2016 Nancy Reagan First Spouse Gold Coins, adding descriptions, coin images and restrictions that include an order limit of 1 per household and a combined mintage of 15,000 coins — 5,000 more than this year’s earlier gold coins featuring Mrs. Ford and Mrs. Nixon.
On July 5, the U.S. Mint will introduce the 2016 Reagan Presidential $1 Coin & First Spouse Medal Set. Each includes a 2016 Reagan Presidential dollar in uncirculated quality and a bronze medal of Mrs. Reagan.
Two additional products depicting Harpers Ferry National Historical Park will also make an appearance next month, a three-coin set of quarters and an uncirculated 5-ounce piece. The U.S. Mint started selling rolls and bags of Harpers Ferry quarters on June 6, 2016.
Here’s a table listing the Mint’s products for July:
