Just a few hours are left until the United States Mint stops selling all 2018 commemorative coins. Collectors have until Dec. 27 at 11:59 PM ET to place orders.
Authorized by Congress with mandated sales deadlines, this year’s two commemorative coin programs advance Breast Cancer Awareness and celebrate the centennial of America’s involvement in World War I.
Available products include $5 gold coins, silver dollars, 50c clad coins and a coin and stamp set.
The U.S. Mint also issued Army, Navy, Air Service, Marines, and Coast Guard silver medals in support of the WWI Centennial Silver Dollar Program. Those, however, are no longer available.
