On Wednesday, March 29, the United States Mint may raise prices on two dozen numismatic gold products. The Mint’s collections of gold coins have prices that can change weekly depending on the trending value of gold.

The U.S. Mint most recently increased prices on Jan. 18 when gold’s average climbed to within $1,200.00 and $1,249.99 an ounce. The yellow metal has since advanced to a 1-month high and is now trading near $1,254 an ounce.

If Wednesday’s LBMA gold price for the AM is above $1,237.70 an ounce and the fixing for the PM stays above $1,250.00 an ounce, then prices of U.S. gold coins will increase by as much as $50 for every ounce of the precious metal they contain.

The following table lists current and possible coin prices:
