Tomorrow, February 27, 2014 at 12:00 Noon ET, the United States Mint will begin accepting orders for the 2014 Warren G. Harding $1 Coin Cover. This will be the 29th release within the American Presidency $1 Coin Cover series.
Each cover contains two 2014 Warren Harding Presidential Dollars sourced from the first day of production at the Philadelphia and Denver Mint facilities, which occurred on January 8, 2014 and January 6, 2014, respectively. The coins are mounted on a display card and placed within an envelope illustrated with a picture of the President. The envelope also contains a USPS A Flag for All Seasons stamp, which is post marked Galion, OH, February 27, 2014. The city of Galion, OH includes neighborhood of Blooming Gorve, where Warren G. Harding was born.
The covers are priced at $19.95 each or are available through the US Mint’s online subscription program at the reduced price of $17.95 each.
There is a product limit of 20,000 units, which is the same limit used for last year’s covers. There are no household ordering limits imposed.
The product page states that the covers will be available for one year from the initial on-sale date or until inventory is depleted prior to the one-year time frame. The US Mint has unevenly applied the “one-year time” frame criteria. Some of last year’s products including this language still remain available for sale after the one year mark.
2014 Baseball Hall of Fame Commemorative Coins
The United States Mint has recently posted the on-sale date for the 2014 National Baseball Hall of Fame Commemorative Coins. The proof and uncirculated $5 gold coins, silver dollars, and clad half dollars will go on sale March 27, 2014. Pricing is still to be determined.
All three coins share a common obverse design depicting a glove and a common reverse design depicting a baseball. The coins are curved, with a concave obverse and convex reverse. The subject matter of the coins and the unusual shape have made the program one of the most anticipated in recent years.
The public will get their first look at the coins during the ANA National Money Fair held in Atlanta from February 27 – March 1, 2014. In a press release, the US Mint announced that their booth would include a display containing the upcoming 2014 National Baseball Hall of Fame Commemorative Coins.
