The following was sent in an e-mail to the numismatic press.
This note is to remind customers to take advantage of the opportunity to pre-order the Purple Heart Hall of Honor commemorative coins — the first coins issued by the U.S. Mint to specifically honor Purple Heart recipients — recognizing the valor and selflessness of the men and women who serve to defend our nation.
The coins, which became available for pre-order February 24, are only available at special introductory pricing for a short amount of time — until March 24.
- The products available at introductory prices include the Proof five-dollar gold coin (22CA) and the Uncirculated five-dollar gold coin (22CB);
- the Proof silver dollar coin (22CC) and the Uncirculated silver dollar coin (22CD);
- the Proof half dollar coin (22CE) and the Uncirculated half dollar coin (22CF);
- and the Three-Coin Proof Set (22CG).
In addition, all household order limits have been lifted.
