The United States Mint has released details on the pricing for the upcoming National Baseball Hall of Fame Commemorative Coins. Available in proof or uncirculated versions, the $5 gold coins, silver dollars, and clad half dollars are scheduled to go on sale next week, Thursday, March 27, 2014.
The $5 gold coins, which will be limited to a maximum mintage of 50,000 pieces across all product options, will be priced based on the same grid utilized for the 2013 commemorative coins. As with other numismatic gold products, pricing for the coins will be established based on the average market price of gold for the prior weekly period. The price will be subject to potential change on a weekly basis.
If the average price of gold for the coming week remains within the $1,300 to $1,349.99 range, then the uncirculated version of the coin would be priced at $419.75 and the proof version would be priced at $424.75. These prices reflect a $5 discount available during the introductory period.
The silver dollars are limited to a mintage of 400,000 across all product options. Under introductory pricing the uncirculated version of the coin will be $47.95 and the proof version will be $51.95. After the conclusion of the introductory period on April 28, regular pricing of $52.95 for the uncirculated and $56.95 for the proof coins will go into effect.
These prices are slightly higher compared to the 2014 Civil Rights Act of 1964 Silver Dollars released earlier this year. Price levels for the earlier program were $3 less per uncirculated coin and $2 less per proof coin.
The Baseball Hall of Fame clad Half Dollars will be limited to a mintage of 750,000 pieces and carry introductory pricing of $18.95 for the uncirculated version and $19.95 for the proof version. After the introductory period, regular prices will be $22.95 for uncirculated and $23.95 for proof coins.
These prices reflect an increase of $2 per coin compared to the price levels for last year’s 2013 5-Star Generals clad Half Dollars.
The prices above include a surcharge of $35 per gold coin, $10 per silver dollar, and $5 per half dollar, which will be distributable to the National Baseball Hall of Fame to help finance its operations.
Additional coverage and commentary on the 2014 Baseball Hall of Fame Commemorative Coins will be provided ahead of the release date.
