On Wednesday, May 23, the United States Mint could reduce prices on nearly one and one-half dozen numismatic gold products.
The U. S. Mint’s collections of gold coins have prices that can change weekly based on the trending value of gold as compared against its 2018 pricing matrix. The agency is currently pricing its numismatic gold coins based on an average of the yellow metal that sits within $1,300 to $1,349.99 an ounce. Since Thursday, gold has been hovering by its lowest price of the year. It is currently trading near $1,292 an ounce.
If Wednesday’s LBMA gold price for the PM remains below $1,300 an ounce, then prices of U.S. collector gold coins will drop by as much as $50 for every ounce of the precious metal they contain.
The following table summarizes the U.S. Mint’s current and possible gold coin pricing.

Past adjustments have tended to happen on Wednesdays at around 2:00 p.m. ET. This article will get updated with what actually happens.
