US Mint Discounts on 2014 Silver Coins and Annual Sets
This week the United States Mint announced it will offer 10% discounts for its most popular silver coins and annual sets. The bureau also said it would continue to sell it silver products at reduced prices in 2014. Additionally, the US Mint is promoting its new product schedule that includes prices and on-sale dates for most of its 2014 products.
US Mint discounts are available for select products ordered only through its Online Subscription Program. This program works much like a magazine subscription. A customer places an order for a recurring annual product(s) listed in the subscription program and the United States Mint automatically ships it on release. For example, if a customer orders a subscription for five annual Silver Proof Sets, every year the Mint will automatically ship five of them when the new set launches.
Many of the Mint’s most popular clad and silver products are available through the subscription service. The 10% discount is for new and existing subscriptions, and will be applied to the following silver coins and annual sets:
|Silver Proof Set||$53.95||$5.40|
|Proof American Silver Eagle||$52.95||$5.30|
|Uncirculated American Silver Eagle||$43.95||$4.40|
|Presidential $1 Coin Proof Set||$18.95||$1.90|
|Presidential $1 Coin Uncirculated Set||$16.95||$1.70|
