The United States Mint has released pricing information for its 2024 commemorative coins set to be issued in January and February. These coins will celebrate the bicentennial of Harriet Tubman’s birth and pay tribute to the service and sacrifice of American soldiers and civilians during World War II, often referred to as the Greatest Generation.

During the initial 30 days of their release, buyers of any of the commemorative coins will receive a $5 discount per coin. For each commemorative program, the U.S. Mint will offer these coins in collector proof and uncirculated finishes, with separate maximums of 750,000 clad half-dollars, up to 400,000 silver dollars, and up to 50,000 $5 gold coins available for sale.

Surcharges collected from the sales of the 2024 Greatest Generation Commemorative Coins will be directed to the Friends of the National World War II Memorial to support the National Park Service in maintaining and repairing the World War II Memorial, as well as funding educational and commemorative programs. Surcharges from the sales of the 2024 Harriet Tubman Commemorative Coins will be allocated to the National Underground Railroad Freedom Center in Cincinnati, Ohio, and the Harriet Tubman Home, Inc., in Auburn, New York, to further their respective missions.

Today, underground railroads are called subways.

Niiiiiiiice 😉

So when they 400,000 silver dollars they do mean across both unc and proof versions total? I.e. we could feasible get 200,000 of each minted max?

Mike Unser,

There is an error in the paragraph in this article about surcharges: the two words “will” should be replaced with the word “may,” as the surcharges are only paid out if the Mint makes a profit on the individual commemorative coin program overall, otherwise the Mint keeps all surcharges for their own coffers, and they don’t refund them to the buyers (U.S. Mint loyal customers)!

At these prices Seth how can the Mint not make a profit!?

Then again Gubmint accounting can be merky when its bean counters want it to show a profit or loss.

I can’t believe how much the Mint is charging for a clad 50¢ piece.

Seth Riesling

Chris Terp, So true! And what young kid can afford to buy the clad half dollar in Proof or Unc. at over $50 now!! That is more than double the price of an ounce of pure silver on the spot market today. It is simply asinine, and the Mint has lost most young numismatists because of the ridiculous price increases starting around 2021 with former Director David Ryder and his absurd antics, including catering directly to coin dealers with special access programs & private, invitation-only auctions of past Mint products that were supposed to have been melted under U.S. Mint… Read more »

Aren’t the commemorative coins & medals the only ones that need to be destroyed Seth? Be that as it may, the Mint produces very few varieties of coins & medals. Ryder’s reasoning was that the U.S. Mint had to raise their prices to be in-sync w/other mints around the globe. Nevermind, that most of those foreign mints produced only 1,000 or 10,000 coins for many of their specialty & commemorative coins while the U.S. Mint has a run of 250,000 for Peace & Morgan’s; 400,000 for Silver Eagle Dollars and 400,000 for the yearly commemorative coins, etc. How does such… Read more »

The so called experts always think that we, the United States, are the same size as other countries, like the UK. Naturally we make more coins so buying in bulk metals should bring a discount, while other mints don’t purchase as much metal so they pay more. Supply and demand. While spot may play a role, S&D still should hold true, especially since the other mints guarantee a higher purity content than America. 99.996 or so compared to 99.992. Which doesn’t seem like much until you factor how many coins are presses. Plus China or someone sued British last year… Read more »


Let them charge what they will for silver and/or proof products (although prices *have* gotten out of control), but there’s no reason to charge $52 for a clad 50 cent piece. There’s no entry point for new or young collectors. Non-proof clad should be $10 and under. Blow out a ton of volume to the collecting public, especially the casual or new collectors. By way of example, the 1986 clad Statue of Liberty half dollar was $5 advance sale, or $13.65 with inflation. Close enough. People can do that, even if not dedicated collectors. (Standard Kennedy halves are 17 cents… Read more »


“tone down the packaging a bit”

The packaging is already cheap garbage. Compare it with 10, 20, or 30 years ago. They should just charge less, particularly for clad coins.

They will soon use LVF that looks like red oak to make the container. Maybe all recycled cardboard from used toilet paper. But at the rate society is going, most likely they’ll come wrapped in pieces torn from the constitution
