As a reminder, these bullion coins are not sold to the public by the US Mint. Rather, they are sold to authorized purchasers who buy a high number of these coins. Eventually some of these coins end up on the market for the public to purchase through dealers. Most often, they are sent to grading services like NGC or PCGS for grading prior to hitting the open market, but not always the case.

You can find some of these coins on Amazon, both raw (non-graded) and graded for sale.
