2018-W $5 Breast Cancer Awareness Gold Coins - Obverses

CoinNews photo of two 2018-W $5 Breast Cancer Awareness Gold Coins. These and other U.S. Mint gold coins could see price increases on Wednesday, Aug. 29.

One week after they were reduced, the United States Mint could raise pricing Wednesday, Aug. 29, on its numismatic gold products.

The U.S. Mint’s collection 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’s current coin prices are based on an average of gold that is within $1,150.00 to $1,199.99 an ounce. Gold is now trading over $1,211 an ounce, rebounding last week from a more than 18-month low.

If Wednesday’s LBMA gold price for the AM is above $1,207.66 an ounce and the PM price remains higher than $1,199.99 an ounce, then prices of U.S. numismatic gold coins will rise 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.
