Launching on March 15 at introductory prices ranging from $25.95 to about $430, the commemoratives are minted in collector qualities of proof and uncirculated with each sharing the same Emily Damstra created designs.

Obverses depict a butterfly, an older woman with her hands on her chest and a relieved expression on her face, and a younger woman wearing a scarf on her head with one hand over her chest and her other hand raised in a fist as if she is ready to fight. Reverses show 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. As long as the coins turn a profit, the collected surcharges will be paid to the Breast Cancer Research Foundation (www.bcrfcure.org) to further its efforts in breast cancer research.

Below are larger images of the commemorative coins.

$5 Gold Coins

Pink-hued gold coins are a first for the U.S. Mint. They are composed in 85% gold, 14.8% copper, and 0.2% zinc. 50,000 are authorized across all options.

50,000 – 85% gold fives
400,000 – 90% silver dollars
750,000 – clad half dollars

Apparently the good stuff is readily available among the gummint employees in D.C., because whoever came up with these numbers just has to be smoking it.

Joe Brown,
Clean is the only way I’m keeping my human machine, body and mind. Never had a clearer head in my life than I do now; am able to think thoughts, have illuminations and experience epiphanies the likes of which I never even imagined before.
Namaste

Joe Brown,
The really big pain is the one in our own head that won’t stop telling us that somehow or other because we’re just not good or capable or smart enough we will forever fark up each and everything we ever touch, whether with our words or hands or intentions. If that persistently debilitating little demon could be silenced….
Namaste
