Collectors can again order the five 2018 World War I Centennial Silver Dollar and Medal Sets. Limited to 100,000, the sets launched on Jan. 17 and originally had an ordering deadline of Feb. 20.
Today, the United States Mint reopened sales of all five sets at their initial issue price of $99.95 each.
There’s no word on how many sets are available or for how long their sales will continue.
The medals feature designs emblematic of the Army, the Navy, the Air Service, the Marines and the Coast Guard. Conceived by the U.S. Mint to support the WWI Centennial Silver Dollar Commemorative Coin Program, each medal is paired with a proof WWI dollar and sold as a distinct set.
Sales figures of all five sets had been declining since their Feb. 20 deadline because of returns and cancellations. That’s no longer the case. Last week’s U.S. Mint sales report had each set advancing by an average of 73 units. This week’s report shows gains ranging from 15 units for the Coast Guard set to 52 units for the Army set.
The following table shows sales totals of the sets shortly after their initial ordering deadline and as of this past Sunday, July 29. The differences may suggest about how many sets could be available.
