WASHINGTON — The United States Mint is pleased to announce that it is reducing or maintaining 2011 prices for some of its most popular products to be offered in 2012. The bureau was able to set these lower prices and maintain others by refining the product costing process, taking advantage of current lower prices for precious metals and negotiating better pricing from its suppliers.
“We hope these prices will allow us to attract more Americans to coin collecting, while increasing collecting opportunities for our current customer base,” said United States Mint Deputy Director Richard A. Peterson.
Products with reduced prices in 2012 include the following:
- United States Mint Uncirculated Coin Set® – reduced from $31.95 to $27.95
