2013 Woodrow Wilson Presidential $1 Coin Cover

Today, November 12, 2013 at 12:00 Noon ET, the United States Mint will begin sales of the 2013 Woodrow Wilson $1 Coin Cover. This will mark the 28th release of the American Presidency $1 Coin Cover series.

Woodrow Wilson Cover

Each cover includes two Woodrow Wilson Presidential Dollars which are sourced from the first day of production at the Philadelphia and Denver Mint facilities, which took place on the dates of March 11, 2013 and February 6, 2013, respectively. The two coins are mounted on a display card placed within an illustrated envelope.

The envelope contains a USPS Patriotic Star stamp which is cancelled with a postmark of November 12, 2013, Staunton, VA. The date represents the first day that the product was available for sale and the city represents the location of the Woodrow Wilson Presidential Library & Museum.

The coin covers are priced at $19.95 each. There is a product limit of 20,000 units. The same limit was applied to this year’s covers for William McKinley and William Howard Taft. A slightly higher limit of 22,000 units was applied to the cover for Theodore Roosevelt.

As of the most recent report, sales for this year’s covers have reached 13,211 for McKinley, 13,981 for Roosevelt, and 11,242 for Taft.

Numismatic Gold and Platinum Coin Price Decrease Possible

mckinleyBased on the available data, it is possible that the prices for the US Mint’s numismatic gold and platinum products will be decreased. The initial pricing for the upcoming Ida McKinley First Spouse Gold Coin will also be established.

Gold products are currently priced based on an average gold price within the range of $1,300 to $1,349.99. The average of the available London Fix prices for the currently weekly period falls into the range of $1,250.00 to $1,299.99, suggesting a one tier price decrease.

In the most likely scenario, as long as the Wednesday London PM Fix price is below $1,300, then a price decrease would take place. Prices for available gold products would be reduced by the equivalent of $50 per ounce of gold content.

The Ida McKinley Gold Coins, which are scheduled to begin sales on November 14, 2013, would be priced at $840 for the proof version and $820 for the uncirculated version.

Platinum products are currently priced based on an average platinum price within the $1,450 to $1,499.99 range. The average available London Fix prices for the current period falls into the range of $1,400 to $1,449.99, suggesting a one tier price decrease.

In the most likely scenario, as long as the Wednesday London PM Fix price is below $1,450, then a price decrease would take place. The prices for the 2012 & 2013 Proof Platinum Eagles would be reduced by $50.

Price changes have usually been implemented around mid-morning on Wednesday.

    I’m looking forward to the 2013 First Spouses and keeping my sets going. I’m glad for the lower price of gold right now, too. I paid around $1,000 each for my 2012’s last January. Bad timing there. But, at least it appears that the 2013’s will be much cheaper to acquire. I hope the price doesn’t rebound before the Wednesday pm fix. I want to save the extra $50 on Ida McKinley.

    McKinley = worst president ever. Bought in the Federal (NOT) Reverse Bank and the IRS. Please pass on these coins. I like the first spouse series, but I think I’m going to stop. There’s too many bad presidents that are coming up.

    Of course they had to sell out the Proof ASE in advance of the LESPS…I guess the silver proof set will also sell out soon.

  4. fmtransmitter says

    Enhanced in the LESPS please…How could it sell out when there isn’t even a price for it yet?

  5. fmtransmitter says

    That IS a beautiful coin. We all know behind a powerful man is a strong Woman running the show. Just ask Bill…

  6. thePhelps says

    Plus they already have committed to not including the Enhanced in any other set. Not sure why anyone would want it included in another set this year.

  7. fmtransmitter says

    Good point ya’ll…I was just trying to think of a way to make it different than last years…How about including the TR silver coin? Ah…

    OT: I received my Mt. Rushmore 5 oz. today. This is the first 5 oz that I have purchased. I came close to getting Hawaii last year and regretted not pulling the trigger.

    I think I’m just going to keep this one in the box for a while, just in case. (To preserve its First Strike eligibility, even though I think that concept is stupid.)

    Sorry to get off topic, but I was looking at the sold RP Buffalos on EBAY, most are in the $1800-$1900 range in OGP. So far these do not seem to be too dependent on the price of gold. I think this coin is getting better with age. Once you have it, I doubt you will ever want to get rid of it. It grows on you.I think this coin has to be up there with the mint’s best.

  10. Larry says

    @ Steve – wow, those designs really look nice! I always get a ATB Silver proof set, and if they look as good as the pictures I will pick up the 5 OZers.

  11. Hidalgo says

    Re: the 2014 ATBs.

    Not too impressed with the designs. They are OK. My favorite year was 2012 — five diverse, yet attractive designs.

    We all have different tastes. So it’s to each, his own 🙂

  12. Ray says

    I like the Smokey Mountains one the best too. I also like Florida almost equally. I’m kind of left feeling like the have never been to Colorado. The coin design is decent, but I think they would have done a lot better with Rocky Mountain, Black Canyon, or Mesa Verde. Glad Smokey Moutnain will be the first 2014 released. I’m hoping we’ll get the 2014 release schedule soon, and also hopefully a multi-year release schedule for special projects each year. I can dream right?

  13. VARich says

    FM – with respect to Bill…, don’t you mean “women”? ;7

    Larry – couldn’t agree more – just FYI – the “informal” sales figure that showed up this morning before being sanitized was 44.5k.., that’s 2k drop from the lowest I’ve seen. It’ll certainly get better with age! Cheers!

  14. Jerry Diekmann says

    Seve – thanks for the link to the 2014 ATB quarters. They are all nice looking coins. But I would have thought Rocky Mountain National Park or Mesa Verde National Park would have been better choices than Great Sand Dunes. The same for Arches – Zion or Bryce National Parks would have been better choices, IMO. I guess I don’t know how the Mint decides which parks to place on coins. Great Smoky Mountains is the best of all five coins, and maybe the best of all the coins since the series began in 2010.
