Introductory prices for clad 50c and silver dollar Breast Cancer Awareness Commemorative Coins will range from $25.95 to $51.95, according to the United States Mint.
Their sales along with companion pink-hued $5 gold coins — a first for the U.S. Mint — will begin at noon ET on March 15, 2018.
Designs for the collectibles were unveiled in October. They will be shared across the clad, silver and pink gold coins.
Obverses (heads side) feature a butterfly and two women. The older woman has her hands on her chest and a relieved expression on her face. The younger woman, with a scarf on her head, holds one hand over her chest and the other raised in a fist as if she is ready to fight. Reverses (tails side) depict a Tiger Swallowtail butterfly in flight, a symbol of hope.

As mandated by their authorizing law (Public Law 114-148), surcharges of $35 per gold coin, $10 per silver dollar and $5 per clad half-dollar are included in each price. When collected from each coin sale, they will be paid to the Breast Cancer Research Foundation (www.bcrfcure.org) to further its efforts in breast cancer research.
