On Wednesday, April 12, the United States Mint may increase prices on more than two dozen numismatic gold products.
The agency’s collections of gold coins have prices that can change weekly depending on the trending value of gold. The U.S. Mint most recently reduced prices on April 5 when gold’s weekly average eased to under $1,250 an ounce. The yellow metal is now trading at a 5-month high and was last up $15.20 to $1,269.60 an ounce.
If Wednesday’s LBMA gold price for the PM remains above $1,250.00 an ounce, then prices of U.S. collector gold coins will increase by as much as $50 for every ounce of the precious metal they contain.
