2021-W $100 Proof American Liberty Gold Coin Launch

135

Liberty takes on a new look with the United States Mint’s release at noon ET of the 2021-W $100 Proof American Liberty Gold Coin. This high relief collectible marks a unique design direction for the U.S. Mint’s American Liberty Gold Coin and Silver Medal Program which features products bearing modern renditions of the iconic figure of Liberty.

Struck at the West Point Mint in .9999 fine, 24-karat gold to a collector proof finish, this coin has a mintage maximum of only 12,500 pieces and a household order limit of one for the first 24 hours of sales.

Since its creation over 225 years ago, the U.S. Mint has typically depicted Liberty in the form of allegorical female figures. That changes with this release as the Mint explores the concept of Liberty beyond those previous incarnations. The new obverse (heads side) design is described by the U.S. Mint as:

"A wild American Mustang horse bucking off a western-style saddle, evoking the throwing-off of the yoke of British rule during the American Revolution."

As for the Mint’s American Liberty series, it debuted in 2015 with a design showcasing a female figure with a torch and flag.

It was followed in 2017 and 2018 with Liberty depicted as an African American woman, facing left, wearing a crown of stars in homage to the bronze Statue of Freedom topping the dome of the U.S. Capitol.

U.S. Mint Artistic Infusion Program Artist Beth Zaiken created the new coin’s depiction of a bucking Mustang horse which is centered on a rising sun. U.S. Mint Medallic Artist Craig Campbell sculpted it. Inscriptions around the design read: LIBERTY, 2021 and IN GOD WE TRUST.

Mint current price of $2,715…..only 12,500 minted…….

And already on ebay for $4,300 to $5,000.

When is the mint going to wake up and stop this nonsense !!??

ANSWER: NEVER

I hate to tell you Joe, but the mint is NEVER going to stop this nonsense, because they are raking in BIG BUCKS by constantly creating artificial shortages, cleverly repackaging already minted coins, ie., the 2 coin gold designer sets, etc. Not to mention their secret and underhanded dealings with the so called authorized purchasers. Hopefully the coming Treasury investigation into their business practices may reign them in somewhat. Let’s hope.

Larry T

You actually believe any government entity will correct an injustice or problem? The only accomplishment this ‘investigation’ will bring to fruition is spending more taxpayers $$$. At least the lawyers will make out like bandits (they always do!) If only they could somehow involve Donald in this, then Hell all bets are off!

Larry T

Kaiser, I think you’re overthinking the situation with regards to Ryder. One of the criticisms I had with Donald was his lack of ‘vetting’ key personnel in his Administration. One day they were the greatest, smartest mind on the planet, the next they were brainless fools. It told me he wasn’t interested in interviewing these people with due diligence. You might be correct with Ryder’s appointment, but I don’t think Donald gave it much thought. I always see our government ‘leaders’ in the same light as sports coaches…always recycled no matter how incompetent they might be! Just look at our… Read more »

Carl Warren

Kaiser and Larry T,

While we have issues with the direction the Mint has taken and, ultimately Ryder, since he’s the person in charge, I wouldn’t consider him a Trump crony. He did, after all, receive unanimous consent from the Senate when confirmed.

Plus, it’s not like he was an unknown to the DC swamp. He was Mint director for 41 (recess appt.) and Slick Willy.

Carl Warren

who knows, maybe Ryder is a closet never-trumper

Larry T

Kaiser,

I’m with you on that. You can probably infer from my posts that I’m not a ‘fan’ of our government, it’s gotten much too big and incompetent ( in my humble opinion.) We know this has affected the Mint to some degree, but at least they are providing some outstanding coins for us this calendar year. Or, at least for those of us lucky and quick enough to secure them! And they’ve given us a respite for the rest of the month in order to regroup and prepare for what will surely be more ‘shenanigans’ in September!

Phil

That guy looks familiar. My idol, lol

Bill

I will bet you money that one of Donald’s troop had them make 30K of the 2019S RP ASE and then ensured they and their friends got most of them. I certainly didn’t get one. That is the kind of crooked con man he is and the type of associates (family) he has. Want to bet?

Daniel

Orange man bad

Larry T

Daniel,

You do realize that Biden is the new ‘orange man’, just look at him with his interview with that suck up George Stephanopoulos! What’s really scary is he didn’t remember whether his dead son was in the Navy or the Army!

Daniel

At least the mean tweets have stopped, eh?

Coinman

Kaiser,

You are having hope because the Treasury is now under Biden’s control? May God have mercy on us all! Biden in about just 7 months of his “leadership” is destroying this country! The debacle in Afghanistan is just one current example. I’ll take Trump any day compared to this feeble and incompetent 50 year career politician!

Larry T

Coinman,

I couldn’t agree more! My jaw literally dropped to the floor while reading that statement from Kaiser. Personally, I don’t believe Biden has control over his bowel movements. As hideous as this fool is, I hope he can last out his term. Have you been watching our VP?

Larry T

Kaiser,

My dentist is always complaining to me about how small my mouth is! So when my jaw ‘dropped to the floor’ I can affirm it clearly was painful! And no, I’m not going to hold you accountable..LoL.

Coinman

Larry T,
Our VP is a no show, a no act and dangerously on the left. She may even be worse than Biden, if that’s even possible. God help us!

Coinman

Kaiser,
Yes presidents come and go but they can leave a trail
of bitter and sometimes irreversible policies and images behind them. This current president has failed in all that he touches. He and his minions are turning this once great country into a socialist state. Venezuela used to be a thriving capitalist and wealthy country. That was before socialism “destroyed” it. Just saying.

Rooster

Coinman: Nailed it!

Coinman

They are BOTH quilty partners.

Chris

I remember back in 2017 I bought the Gold Liberty for 1495 I think. That’s was a lot now this one 2700 plus. Would have liked to keep seeing liberty allegory designs. But still to much for me for an unattractive coin in my opinion.

Daniel

Yeah, I ended up begrudgingly buying this to “complete the set”, even though I think it is ridiculous, and really ruins the beautiful aesthetics which the 2017 and 2019 coins displayed.
strange thing is you can still but the 2017 coin from the mint … albeit with a 2021price tag.
https://catalog.usmint.gov/american-liberty-225th-anniversary-gold-coin-17XA.html

Larry T

Joe,

Would you pay those ridiculous prices for a Liberty Coin? I won’t shell out $2700 for it, as it’ll leave me with ‘yoke’ on my face! My lineage traces back to the ‘bucked.’

Seth Riesling

Kaiser – Lol. Or a “cuppa” ayahuasca! A coin with a “Ryder-less” horse!!?? That horse is having an epileptic fit…or someone slapped it in the a$$ hard…or it got spooked by a snake…or it is breeding/mating season…or it consumed a lot of fermented fruit from an untended garden while foraging…or it is fighting hard against the inevitable outcome of a horse tranquilizer it was slipped in its hay snack. In any case, Ed the talking horse would be ashamed of his cousin “Bucky” the bareback equine! Anyway, does anyone want to buy a slightly-used horse saddle!? – I’m only asking… Read more »

Jake

I appreciate your perspective Seth and also, thanks for your response on the other thread. Not to sound sacrilegious, but when I first saw this coin I felt the horse was throwing liberty off it’s back. What do I know, lol, stupid is as stupid does.

c_q

those may be asking prices, taking a quick look at actual sales it’s more like 3200-3500. which is still crazy high since they are not sold out at the mint yet, just backordered at the moment, so why buy on ebay? do they not know the mint has a website? plus at $2715 the mint is already charging almost $1000 premium over the spot price of gold.

Joe

—so why buy on ebay? do they not know the mint has a website?—

To answer your question……..

P.T. Barnum said, “There’s a sucker born every minute“.

Big T

I guess I’m the only one that kind of likes the design – that said, I won’t be paying 2700 for it. For that price you can pick up a 1885 CC Morgan MS65PL – or maybe a 1921 high relief peace dollar in MS66 – or maybe even a 1877 trade dollar MS62… wouldn’t you rather have something like that?? Compared to all of these, this liberty gold coin is just not as exciting to me…

B K

I’m a fan of the design but not the price @ $2715. The mint can keep this one.

Mammoth

Big T – You aren’t alone in liking this coin’s design.
I appreciate the Mint thinking ‘outside the box’ on this one.

But at nearly $1,000 over the spot price, I’ll pass this one up.

Also – for anyone who actually believes that something substantial will come out of the Inspector General’s investigation into the secretive practices of how the Mint shortchanges the collector in collusion with the big dealers – well I’ve got a good deal on some Florida swampland for you.

Larry T

Mammoth,

You are such a smart and wise beast! Crank those printing presses up!

Larry T

Big T,

I like the 1885 CC idea!

Rob S

Agreed. While I think this is 1 of the better designs I’ve seen for this coin, the background info turns me off more than it probably should. *shrug* I mean I kinda like the bronco, but the text misrepresents it IMO. And I’ve said it before but I like the eagle close-up better than the AGE “chicken-head” (altho when I turn that coin over to the St Gaudens, it makes it all better for me). Well, that and the $2700+ cost bucks me off. Plus I want to get the Palladium in Sept which will clock in at well over… Read more »

Seb

I like this coin because it is a subtle allusion to the “Hey, diddle, diddle” lyrics only that instead of “The cow jumped over the moon” we have “The horse jumped over the sun”
Hopefully one of those private mints will make a round like this and replace LIBERTY with Hey, diddle, diddle

Seth Riesling

Kaiser –

May G-D bless you & the horse you rode in on with your poke full of gold coins depicting horses…and your largess handing out such legal tender to us bourgeoisie…let the good times roll!

NumisdudeTX

Carol

Order went through on the first try. I guess there is not that much demand. Oh well. I like the look of the coin anyway.

B K

These will be around for a while, As with the 2018 hi relief, subject matter on the coin wasn’t in high demand to the collectors.
The mint will try to put the illusion of being back ordered to try and drive demand but it will be like the 2020 pladiam being a avabile for quit some time or until they give a dealer a offer he cant refuse, then it will be the rarest of rare, right here right now. Lol

Seth Riesling

Ambien has been known to cause sleep shopping on the Mint’s website! – just saying…lol

NumisdudeTX

Larry T

B K,

I absolutely love the Palladium coins. The ‘Winged ‘ Liberty on the obverse with the gorgeous eagle from the Walking Liberty Half on the reverse are so classic. But the Mint wants us to pay them $ 800-1000 each to mint them. As a result, I am palladium less, and will remain so until they make some pricing changes. Are you listening, Mint? And yes I really wanted the Reverse Proof Palladium in the worst way! But as they say, ” want isn’t the same as need.”

By the way, your middle initial isn’t ‘T’ is it?

Phil

Larry T,

The ’19 Pd is probably my 2nd favorite coin I’ve bought. Right behind the Tampa Bay Bucs souvenir SB 3×9 fine silver proof from Highland Mint earlier this yr. Lol

I’m not pretending to know the future, but Pd seems destined to drop as the ICE’s future looks bleak.

I’m still gonna hold on to my Pd coin if it’s value falls to legal tender, cause I love it’s design.

r

Larry T

Phil, I’m a fan of Tom Brady and was really pleased to see the Buc’s win the SB last year. It was pitiful to watch most of the ‘reporters’ who interviewed the teams after the playoff games trying to infer it was Tom, and only Tom, responsible for their success. To his credit, he had to tell one ‘ to get someone else up here.’ The Buc’s had a great defense and offense which finally gelled at the right time! By the way, I like watching Mahomes as well, but let him play a while before crowning him as our… Read more »

Larry T

Kaiser,

I was just trying to insert a little levity into the discussion, like my joke about Biden and the mint.gum. Now that was funny, right? “gum, oh my God, it’s gum!” Do you remember what movie that lines from? And Kaiser, although Dennis Rader is in prison (should be 6 feet under) he probably has access to a computer, the internet, and who knows what else.This is the internet where anything is possible.

Jake

Got it in 5 minutes, a lot of lag for me. Hope Seth and KW were successful too

Steve

could have signed in and out 30 times by now

Steve

I don’t understand why anyone would pay 3500.00 on ebay when you can buy direct.

Kennygee

Steve, It is because a lot of people have a lot more money then they do brains.

Mammoth

Kennygee – We can say the same thing about the people who paid $2,715 for this coin today.

Mark D.

Stan?

Jake

Haha I do find it hilarious people are bothered by what other people spend their own money on. You sound like Lonnie the complainer. I’ve never been closer to completing a complete yearly set. Woohoo!

Kennygee

Not really Kaiser, If you bought this Mustang coin today and sold it tomorrow, you would make about $500.00 or so on eBay. Just look at the coins that are sold already on eBay. I bought one today in 2 minutes but my problem is I can’t sell it. I am like the preverbal scorpion who stung the frog giving him a ride across the pond and who promised not to sting him. When asked by the frog why, now we are both going to die. He said, “I can’t help it. It is just in my nature. Also a… Read more »

Jake

I sign in about 10 minutes prior to the release and stay signed in until checkout is complete

Ken T

Over 50 new ads on Ebay with confirmed sales in the first 20 minutes after release.

Ken T

I should say “confirmed orders from the US Mint”

Kennygee

Ken T,
Let’s seen how many of those listings on Ebay become confirmed as sold items. I always look for what they sold for and never look at the asking price.

Kennygee

eBay sellers are maybe not shrewd but may be entrepreneurs. The clueless may not be clueless, but just have more money then they have time then us coin freaks that have nothing better to do but sit in front of the computer at the crack of noon (Eastern time) and play US Mint roulette. Yes some people do not only list these coins at a wildly inflated prices, but they list them before they even get them confirmed. Many times they even sell them at PR 70 or MS 70 and they are not even going to receive them for 3… Read more »

Kennygee

I didn’t mean it to sound like I thought you didn’t love this country Kaiser. Most people who immigrated here love it more then the people who were born here. A lot of people born in this country take it for granted because they never have seen how bad some people live without the freedoms we all have. My dad came from Italy in 1912 and went through Elis Island. He loved this country and always said he was dam glad he didn’t miss the boat. Sorry for any misunderstanding you might have had.

Kennygee

Kaiser, I think you made the right decision. All those places are great to visit, but when it comes to returning home, there is no place like the USA. Just look at those people throwing their kids over the wall in Kabul, Afghanistan so they might have a chance to have some kind of a life if their parents didn’t make it. I thank God every day that my dad didn’t miss the boat because if he did, we wouldn’t be having this conversation.

Dan

currently backordered. gotta say i’m a sucker for the high-denomination coins even though the US Mint is a criminal enterprise

chuck

Thanks to those who did not order; had a chance today. Like the design and no rider might tell us something.

Rich

Maybe they should of had Paul Revere riding that horse.

Rob S

THAT woulda made so MUCH MORE sense!!
… Or the Pony Express!

Rich

Sir Kaiser,

Or General Custer. SOS – Please see my comment just posted on Mike Unser’s August 18th US Mint Sales article. Thanks.

Seth Riesling

Kaiser,
LOL! Now that gave me a much-needed belly laugh. Thanks.

I have always said, “never beat a dead horse” or was it “never eat a live horse” – Letters from a certified horse meat restaurant somewhere in France,

No, I meant “rider” but I’m bad should have been “riders”. Ryder is likely just one of them.

Coinman

Absolutely amazing alliteration, aye, aye!

GV GV

Where are all the flippers at???? Cheap-o flippers don’t want to take a risk on this coin and the falling price of gold? Ha ha, all mint has to do is raise the price 2x 3x on the garbage peace and morgans they sold and poof…market cleared of resellers, but the goal of the mint is to put it in the hands of the reseller so they bear all the risk not the mint. Wait till the tide turns and the “value” of those coins fall.

Larry T

It sounds to me like you are just frustrated that you were unable to secure some of those ‘garbage’ Peace and Morgan Dollars! Let me know when these coins sell for less than $85 on the secondary market!

Coinman

Kaiser, I second that emotion………er, explanation. You hit the nail on the head. And again, that’s Mike “There’s Not Enough Coins” Mezack.
Huckster, hawker, barker and last but not least, LIAR!!!!

Coinman

Hear, hear! Kaiser, you are a keen observer of people and their behavior, and you have a knack for lasering in the most precise comments as needed and deserved, I might add. Keep up the good work my friend!

Carl

Got one because I like it.

Steven A Dahlstrom

Me too!

Christopher Williams

The moment I observed the price for this coin I was out.

Christopher Williams

Kaiser,

In 2015 I purchased the “Liberty High Relief Gold” for $1,490.00 and I was very happy with that purchase and addition to my collection, but I can’t justify to my self paying $2,715.00 for this one. I am looking forward to purchasing the “Silver 2-coin Designer Set” that the Mint has pushed back.

Charles Visco

I’m new to numismatics and learning about it the hard way . Paying too much for various products . Seems like a big hustle and everyone is just trying to get the advantage over the next guy. There’s no standard or fair rules in the game. And now it looks to me that the US MINT has little integrity like everyone else.

Steve J.

Kaiser Wilhelm, I am also new to this. The feeding frenzy during the ordering process at the Mint has discouraged me. I can’t get through the checkout process before everything becomes unavailable. I was lucky enough to get the type 2 gold 1/10 oz coin. It arrived in the mail recently. Nice coin, poor looking presentation box. Looking through the product schedule it seems like the type 1 coins got ‘1st class’ packaging & the type 2 coins got ‘coach’ packaging at 1st class prices. I know, all that is just fluff. You seem to be very knowledgeable, maybe you… Read more »

Kaiser,

Wow! Thank you for the information, that really helps me out!

Mike Petraitis

I bought a brand new Ford Pinto in 1972 for $2200.00 that was one ugly car.People are complaining how ugly this coin is what about the people paying $40.000 for a brand new 2021 ugly car that will be worth $10.000 in seven years.

Larry T

Kaiser,

Both you and Mike are so wrong about SUV’s, at least some SUV’s. I bought a Toyota 4Runner in 2008 for roughly $25,000. Great vehicle which only required yearly oil changes. I traded it in on a new 2019 Toyota 4Runner and they gave me $12,500 for it. Now that you have been properly edified, I’d also say that I wouldn’t buy either a coin or a vehicle as an investment. Well, if I had a spare 20M maybe the 1933 Double Eagle would be a consideration!

Larry T

Kaiser, You and your wife have good taste in cars. I like buying the 4Runner because it is manufactured in Japan. Those Japanese are really detailed oriented ( or is that oriental?) I do love our Country, but it does grate me that you can’t purchase an American vehicle, of comparable value, that will stand up to the Japanese and European Union ones. About the only thing we manufacture well is jets ( both commercial and military) as well as other assorted military equipment. And if you don’t believe me, just ask the Taliban, we just gave them billions of… Read more »

These are the ugliest coins ever produced. The 2017-18 coins are laughable.

Larry T

Kaiser,

Do you know you can still buy the 2017 Gold version of this ‘beautiful’ design from the Mint? If the Mint can’t sell a precious metal coin after several years, wouldn’t one think that they would melt them for planchets. Damn, maybe I should be appointed as the Mints Director!

Larry T

Kaiser,

I’ve gotten this far along life’s road without having to sell my soul and think I’ll follow your sage advice! And my friend, I’n not sure ‘law’ is very relevant in todays society. Have you noticed how judges are dictating what ‘laws’ can be considered legal and abiding? The latest was a judge validating the order from the CDC extending the moratorium on landlords evicting delinquent renters.The CDC!

Daniel

Would these be in “back order” status because they know Authorised Purchasers are going to reject all those which they know won’t grade highly, and will therefore be returning them?

Mark Tercsak

Concur what a ridiculous design

Rooster

Perspective: I paid more for this coin than I did for the 20th anniversary gold eagle 3 coin set.

Rooster

Yes indeed. Different strokes for different folks. Like whisk(e)y: Drink it how you like it.

Carl

I liked this coin so much that I ordered another one today after the limit was removed but read on so you’ll know that I’m not totally insane or maybe just nuts. I canceled the order of yesterday so I’ll be getting the coin later and IF the price is reduced AND more become available I’ll do the same again.

Rooster

Carl: The gold American Liberty coin? Thought it was sold out.

Phil

Carl,

I’m confused, forgive me. Was this maneuvering in the hopes of x-ming with getting a lower price?

Was on the fence, but hopped in corral & grabbed 1 b4 went backorder yesterday. I do see no longer available now.

r,
always

Carl

Rooster,
Yes they were available for a short time again today I signed in and at noon the limit was removed so I ordered another one and then canceled the order of yesterday. The difference in order numbers is 21,413 for whatever that is worth. I doubt many will be available in the future unless orders are canceled or coins are returned.

Rooster

Carl, Nice you snagged one then. Must have been a narrow window but you scored.

New Yorker

When I first saw this design a couple of months back, it was too unexpected and took me aback, and I did not like it. Then I looked at it again recently, and decided that my first knee-jerk reaction was actually wrong, that the design is actually great and has a chance to become a future classic. I like the way the horse is rendered, the way its back is arched to follow the curve of the coin, and the modernist geometric sun that completes the composition on the obverse. The design is certainly innovative, which cannot be said about… Read more »

Carl

I have a confirmation email for the new order and an email that the original order was canceled. Both pending charges are on the credit card but the one of August 19 will disappear in a few days. On the order history the original order is canceled and I expect to receive the coin when orders are filled in sequence. If I somehow don’t get one in the process, so be it, 2021 Buffalo are an option or ms70 Buffalo for less.

Hi Kaiser
The 2021 uncirculated set is scheduled to go on sale on sep 28.
The mint has limited to enrollment to 20 , down from 99 in the past .
What to do surmise the Reason is
Thanks

Mmk

Thanks Kaiser for your ,as always astute comments . Your explanation is very logical , I’m wondering if the mint is planning a very low mintage – lower than than last years mintage of about 213,000 for the 2020 uncirculated set and is anticipating huge demand for this product.

Kennygee

Mmk We are talking about clad coins here. The mint is reducing the enrollment limit to 20 just to work the coin collectors up to think these coins will be worth something some day. I buy 5 sets of them every year on subscription just to have some uncirculated version of the coins we use every day to give the grand kids. I paid $25.25 each for the 5 sets I bought last year (2020). There were 20 coins worth $5.81 face value. We know it cost the mint only 17.6 cents to make a quarter so this example is… Read more »

Kennygee,
I appreciate your insights,seems like the mint is playing a game with collector’s.let’s wait and see
What the mintage is on this years set .

Kennygee

Mmk,
The limit is now as many coins as you want. No limit. Clad is clad and precious metal is precious metal. I rest my case..

Larry T

Kennygee, I think the clad coins are for those that are financially challenged. If a coin from the mint doesn’t contain some kind of precious element, I’m just not interested. I suppose they would be ok as a gift, but the young ones are much more interested if other things these days. As far as the Liberty gold coin, for the money, I’d much prefer the Buffalo gold coin! But, I’m a true believer in ‘to each his own.’ And just think, the new theory about how gold is formed is in a nova explosion of a neutron star. There… Read more »

Larry T, I love the buffalo coins also. I have a number of them including a couple 2013 reverse proofs. There is no limit on them. These high relief coins are really nice and the production is capped at 12,500. The proof buffalos came out in May and you can still buy as many as you can afford. You see how fast the Liberty coin sold out and if a person wanted to make a quick profit on them, they could make $500.00 right away. But that defeats the purpose of coin collecting and the thrill of 12:00 noon on… Read more »

Larry T

Kennygee, You are so correct about the high relief coins! They are beautiful to behold. I see a lot of the Liberty coins ‘listed’ on eBay for $3000 plus, but I wonder how many are ‘sold’ for $3000 plus? With the exaggerated premium one has to pay the Mint for these gold coins, it has drastically limited my purchases (of gold coins) from them. Beside, I have many specimens in my safe when I need a ‘gold fix’, including those 2013 Buffalo gold Reverse Proofs! We sure didn’t pay almost $1000 over spot for them either! Now be honest, when… Read more »

They love any gold. There dad has got them panning in the creek on their property. He even salted it with some fake gold. I was going to but some actual gold dirt with 1 ounce of gold dust in it for $2100.00. Then I said if they lose some of it, that would be such a waste. So I am giving the 1/10 oz. gold eagles instead. As for the $1000.00 over spot. If you bought a gold proof Buffalo, you paid $2690.00 for a normal relief coin with no limit to the mintage. If I bought a High… Read more »

We must’ve been bombarded with some precious metal elements- rich asteroids in the past. And a lot of them! Obviously, most of these heavy elements are now located at our core. It’s estimated there is enough gold alone in our core to cover the entire earth with a layer 1 meter high.It’s only relatively rare because we can’t get to it!

Has anybody recived there coin yet from the mint? I ordered one and usually after the order is confirmed they put a pending charge on my credit card this time nothing. All it says on my order from the mint it is being processed they are getting slower and slower.

Kennygee

Mike, Mine is still pending but they just sent my 4 coin gold set. I can’t wait to see it.

Rooster

Same status here.

James P

I got my shipping notice yesterday.

Rooster

Status just changed to shipped. Waiting to be picked up.

Kennygee

Mike, Mine shipped today. Should get it Saturday or Monday.

Scarecrow

Oh man, are they hand striking this coin? Bought the same day as all of you but still shows “Processing”. It is almost the weekend now, so don’t expect any changes until next week. Sighhhh.

Mike Petraitis

Same thing here I purchased the coin the minute it went on sale and it is still being processed.Other times I purchase items and have the coins three days later this time slower then a turtle crossing the street.

Rooster

Update: The gold horse showed up today.

May not even look at it. Lol

Rooster

You get used to it. I enjoy the reaction of the kids or grands when they open their gifts just as received from the mint.

I opened mine. It is one beautiful piece of art.

Rooster

Good to hear. They are works of art indeed. May have to open mine as well. Hopefully all receive good quality coins. Some issues with the 2015 American liberty coins. Would you grade yours a 70?

Kennygee

Rooster
I put mine under 5 times magnification and it should grade PR 70. I don’t know if I want to send it in yet. If I do, it will be later in the year when the Morgan and Peace dollars get here. I would like to get a MS 70 set of 6, if I am lucky enough to get any 70’s.

Rooster

Kennygee: That is great if you did 5X. I am waiting at this point but probably will not send my coin in. The ones I have sent in years ago came back how I expected. If I think a coin would grade 69 I will not send in. Not worth the money. Every coin that I thought would grade 70 came back that way. Those Morgans and Peace though. Can’t wait for those to get sent out.

Scarecrow

Can back order a couple of minutes ago.

How long does it take to ship these coins? My has been in the processing stage for over two weeks.

Scarecrow

Even though I completed the order at 11:02 Central the day it was offered, it only changed to “shipping” 2 days ago. The post office is still waiting to receive it

Rick

Thanks Scarecrow. I guess I’m not the only one waiting.

Scarecrow

Open your Order Summary and look under the “Shipping To” section. Directly underneath it will show Method. If it shows “Bestway USPS-FC or UPS-GND” then it is still pending, but if it shows either USPS-FC or UPS-GND then in my experience, shipping is just a couple of days away since they have decided a shipping vendor.

Thanks Kaiser, I the past my orders usually got shipped in a couple days. I called my bank to make sure they approved the charge. Contacted the Mint a couple times but they were no help. I guess I just keep my fingers crossed and hope it comes through.

Rick

Thanks Kaiser,I appreciate the words of encouragement.

Rick

Well Kaiser, I finally got the email that my coin has been shipped. It only took 3 weeks.

Rooster

Where did all of the profit from the American Liberty gold coins end up? Did it go to fight the national debt or was this program in competition with the eagle bullion program?
