The introductory pricing period for the 2015 US Marshals 225th Anniversary Commemorative Coins will conclude next week on March 2, 2015 at 3:00 PM ET.
The coins originally went on sale January 29, 2015. The program includes $5 gold coins, silver dollars, clad half dollars, with a three coin proof set available. Opening day sales were not up to the robust level of last year’s Baseball Hall of Fame Commemorative Coins, however they were much stronger compared to the next prior year three coin program honoring the U.S. Army 5-Star Generals.
The table below shows the latest sales figures for the US Marshals Coins from the weekly sales report posted on Coin Update. The sales totals for each of the proof coins include the coins sold within the three coin proof set.
US Marshals Commemorative Coin Sales
|$5 Gold Coin||19,395||5,069||24,464|
The total sales for each coin remain well below the established maximum mintage levels. The $5 Gold Coins have sold 24.46% of the 100,000 maximum. The silver dollars have sold 21.65% of the 500,000 maximum. The half dollars have sold 10.32% of the 750,000 maximum.
The three coin proof set carries a product limit of 15,000 units and has sold 13,902 units, making it close to reaching a sell out.
Traditionally, the majority of sales for commemorative coin programs have occurred during the introductory sales period.
After March 2, 2015 at 3:00 PM ET, regular pricing will go into effect. The prices are either $4 or $5 higher per product, which makes for a relatively small percentage increase for gold products, but a high percentage increase for the silver dollars and half dollars.
The table below shows the current introductory prices and the regular prices which will go into effect next week. Prices for products containing gold coins may also fluctuate based on the average weekly market price of gold.
