As reported last week, the United States Mint has delayed the release of the 2022 Purple Heart Hall of Honor commemorative coins. Those sales were set to start January 6, 2022 but have now been moved to a “TBD” (To Be Determined) date on the schedule. However, the Mint has now quietly released the pricing schedule for most of the coins once they are available. Pricing for the gold coins will be published on the release date. In all, the Mint will be releasing eight products as part of the commemorative’s release.
The pricing below reflects a discounted price of $5 that will be honored up to 30 days after the initial release. Here is break down of the pricing schedule along with links to those coins or sets on the Mint’s Production Schedule. You will also find the mintage limit that the Mint has set for each product:
- Colorized Silver Dollar (400,000) – $95.00 (Note, this product does not have an introductory discount)
- $5 Gold Proof Coin (50,000) – TBD
- Proof Half Dollar (750,000) – $35.00
- Proof Silver Dollar (400,000) – $74.00
- Three-Coin Proof Set (5,000 Product Limit) – TBD
- $5 Gold Uncirculated Coin (50,000) – TBD
- Uncirculated Half Dollar (750,000) – $33.00
- Uncirculated Silver Dollar (400,000) – $69.00
Coin prices include surcharges of $35 for each $5 gold coin, $10 for each silver dollar, and $5 for each clad half dollar. The Public Law authorizes the Mint to pay the surcharges to the National Purple Heart Honor Mission, Inc., to support its mission and for capital improvements to the National Purple Heart Hall of Honor facilities.
At the time of this article, the Mint has not provided a release date for the commemoratives but, by law, it will be in 2022.
