Sales of all of the products are subject to availability, and it is possible that prices will change, based on market value of the precious metals the products contain. The last time prices changed among Star-Spangled Banner products containing gold was Wednesday, October 24.

Last opportunity deadlines are common at the U.S. Mint, especially for commemoratives because the legislation that mandated their production also restricts their sales. For both the Star-Spangled Banner and Infantry Soldier related products, the period for issuance was only allowed during the 2012 calendar year. The bill that authorized the 9/11 Silver Medals, on the other hand, differed by stating that their issuance start in 2011 but the medals shall not be struck after the end of December 2012.

The last chance notice appeared on the Mint’s catalog home page under the Announcements section on Monday, October 22. Along with it was a message regarding holiday shipping. Buyers who want their purchases to arrive by December 25, 2012 need to make their orders by December 10 for standard delivery or December 17 for expedited delivery.
