Collectors and dealers can order as many 2016-W Walking Liberty Centennial Gold Coins as they want. The United States Mint on Monday lifted their household order restriction of three coins.
Released on Nov. 17, the gold half-dollar’s four-day sales reached 46,956 coins for 67.1% of the possible 70,000. Another sales update should be available by late Tuesday, Nov. 29.
The collectible is the last of three .9999 fine 24-karat gold coins to celebrate popular designs introduced 100 years ago. The first two commemorate the 1916 Mercury dime and the 1916 Standing Liberty quarter.
