U.S. Mint Public Affairs Specialist Lateefah Simms has issued a statement saying that the 2015 American Liberty High Relief Gold Coin, due for release at noon (EDT) on July 30, will have a mintage limit of 50,000 coins, with per-household sales restricted to 50 units each. According to a release posted on the U.S. Mint’s website, the coin will come in a “black, satin lined, velvet” case with a certificate of authenticity.
Simms noted that the coin can only be purchased online or by calling 1-800-USA-MINT (872-6468). She continued, “Customers should be aware this could be a high-demand item. For faster ordering, customers should be on the website at noon July 30. If customers have an account and are logged in, they can usually complete their purchase in under two minutes. The website can handle thousands of customers at a time, so the website is the fastest method to get an order in the system.”
Last week, the U.S. Mint provided projections for the cost of the coin relative to the changing price of gold; you can view their pricing estimates here.
