Until today, four products on the United States Mint’s online product schedule for 2016 had yet to receive official release dates: the Fort Moultrie America the Beautiful Quarter Three-Coin Set (product code 16AH), the Fort Moultrie Uncirculated 5oz Silver Coin (product code 16AN), the Annual Uncirculated Dollar Coin Set (product code 16RB) and the 2016 American Silver Eagle 1oz Silver Uncirculated Coin (product code 16EG).
Now we know when collectors and other consumers will be able to place their orders:
- The Uncirculated 1oz Silver Eagle will be available December 1;
- The Fort Moultrie (Fort Sumter National Monument) 2016 Quarter Three-Coin Set will go on sale December 5;
- Orders for the Fort Moultrie (Fort Sumter National Monument) 2016 Uncirculated Five Ounce Silver Coin will go live on December 8; and
- The Annual Uncirculated Dollar Coin Set goes on sale December 14.
All Mint products become available at noon Eastern Time on their respective release dates.
But while it’s good to know when the last Mint products for the year are coming out, there are still a handful of products yet to see release in the month of November.
Rolls and bags for the Fort Moultrie (Fort Sumter National Monument) America the Beautiful Quarter will be available on November 14. The third and final coin in the 2016 Centennial gold coin set, this one honoring Adolph Weinman’s classic Walking Liberty design of 1916, comes out on November 17. The America the Beautiful Quarters 2016 Circulating Coin Set will go on sale November 22. The 2016 Limited Edition Silver Proof Set is available starting November 25. And the 2016 Congratulations Set goes on sale November 29.
CoinWeek will continue to keep you informed about each of these new products from the United States Mint as more information becomes known.
