Whether or not this is the same product as the previously announced 2012 Infantry Soldier Silver Dollar Defenders of Freedom Set is not known, but the Defenders of Freedom Set was listed to sell for $61.95.

The price for one additional 2012 commemorative coin product was also listed in the latest Federal Register notice. It shows that a Star-Spangled Banner Bicentennial Silver Dollar Set will sell for $53.95.

Commemorative Coin Release Dates and Introductory Pricing Period

The U.S. Mint plans to release the individual Infantry Soldier Silver Dollars on February 16. Star-Spangled Banner Silver Dollars are scheduled to launch on March 5. Release dates for any of the associated sets are not yet known.

"The introductory pricing period for the 2012 Infantry Soldier Silver Dollar begins February 16, and ends March 19. The introductory pricing period for the 2012 Star-Spangled Banner Commemorative Coin Program begins March 5, and ends April 5," the Federal Register notice states.

    Prices might be reduced but whats more important is the numbers struck from each series of coins. The lesser coins, the faster the price goes up and that is exactly what dealers and investors are waiting for.
