Public Law 112–104 authorizes the bureau to mint and issue up to 100,000 $5 gold coins, 500,000 $1 silver coins, and 750,000 half–dollar clad coins. Customer demand will determine the ratio of proof to uncirculated coins minted within the authorized mintage limits.

Pricing for the $5 gold coins and the Three–Coin Proof Set, which includes one proof $5 gold coin, one proof silver dollar, and one proof clad half dollar, will be determined by the United States Mint’s pricing strategy for precious metals numismatic products, located at http://catalog.usmint.gov.

Sales prices include surcharges of $35 for each gold coin, $10 for each silver coin, and $3 for each clad coin. The first $5 million in surcharges received from coin sales is authorized to be paid to the U.S. Marshals Museum, Inc., for the preservation, maintenance, and display of artifacts and documents. The remainder of the surcharge funds will be divided among the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children, the Federal Law Enforcement Officers Association Foundation, and the National Law Enforcement Officers Memorial Fund.
