2010 US Coin Product Schedule Released

by Coin Collecting News on December 28, 2009

2010-Product-ScheduleNew to the United States Mint web site is a listing of coin products scheduled for release in 2010. The US Mint has provided preliminary dates for, as of this writing, 39 product launches.

The list is subject to change, and the schedule certainly will — as an example, just 3 of the 39 have actual dates while the rest show releases by month. The schedule is refreshing considering that the Mint’s practice in 2009 was to reveal launch dates usually only a month, at most, in advance.

The 2010 Silver Commemoratives perhaps shine the brightest on the schedule. The Mint has provided February and March as the respective months for the release of the silver coins honoring Disabled American Veterans and the centennial anniversary founding of the Boy Scouts of America (BSA).

Collectors will also look out for the new Lincoln coins of the year, which include the 2010 Lincoln Cent and the Lincoln Presidential $1 Coin. The former is not listed as a standalone option — at least yet, but it will be included in various sets throughout the year. The latter is scheduled for issue in November.

Rounding out 2010 Presidential dollars are the coins honoring Presidents Fillmore, Pierce, and Buchanan. Then, of course, featured on 1/2 ounce, 24 karat coins will be the 2010 First Spouse Gold Coins with Abigail Fillmore, Jane Pierce, and Mary Lincoln. Buchanan was not married while serving as President. As such, a design emblematic of Liberty as depicted on a circulating coin of that era was chosen for the first lady coin. The Mint has provided monthly release dates for each, which are included in the table below.

Also of note are the first five America the Beautiful Quarters. The coins begin an eleven year series to commemorate national parks and national sites. First up are the quarter-dollars for Hot Springs National Park in Arkansas, Yellowstone National Park in Wyoming, Yosemite National Park in California, Grand Canyon National Park in Arizona and Mt. Hood National Forest in Oregon. These quarters will also be featured in many of the Mint products, which include their traditional annual proof and mint sets — both clad and silver versions.

Absent from the schedule, as they were initially in 2009, are the availability dates for collector proof and uncirculated Gold Eagles, Silver Eagles and Gold Buffalo coins. The Eagle Platinum Proof Coin, however, is scheduled for release in August.

For the collector of American Eagles, the Mint’s link to the information pages still provide the same message as in 2009:

The United States Mint will resume the American Eagle [replace with “Silver” or Gold”] Proof and Uncirculated Coin Programs once sufficient inventories of silver bullion blanks can be acquired to meet market demand for all three American Eagle Silver Coin products.

The following is the schedule as it stands now:

This is really helping me with my coin collecting and this is my favorite thing to do. I hope you continue to do this so everyone can collect (whoever is interested) coins and know when to look for them. So I want to say you are doing a good job. Thanks.
