2011 Product Schedule Released by US Mint

2011 US Mint Product Schedule

A Product Schedule for the upcoming year has been issued by the United States Mint giving collectors a rather complete picture of the Mint's plan for 2011.

In fact, the schedule offers many more details than the Mint made available in previous year's versions. Take for example the preliminary schedule offered last year in December for the 2010 releases. It only gave specific date information for three of the 2010 items listed on its schedule. The remaining products were listed with only approximate months for their release, with some even having a window of two months shown.

That is not the case with the 50-plus items listed on the 2011 Product Schedule. Only two of the included releases are not shown with a specific date, and both of them are American Silver Eagles. The Proof Silver Eagle is shown to be released "By 07/06/11" with the Uncirculated Silver Eagle release date listed as "TBD."

Of course, with the uncertainty surrounding the Eagle Program in the last two years, it is not surprising that the Mint is reluctant to set a specific date for the strikes. Collectors will recall that the Mint pulled the Proof Silver Eagle from availability earlier than many anticipated in 2008 and cancelled the 2009 proof altogether marking the first time the Mint did not produce an annual Proof Eagle since the program began in 1986. Even most of this year went by leaving many to wonder if a 2010-dated coin would be struck. Finally, the Proof Silver Eagle was released on November 19th. The Uncirculated Silver Eagle met the same fate in the previous year's as the proof, but it did not make a 2010 return.

A notable omission from the list are the five ounce silver uncirculated versions of the Mint's America the Beautiful coins such as the Hot Springs Silver Coin. The Mint indicated that the 2010 strikes of the collector grade coins would be struck by the end of the year, with a release in early 2011. Presumably, the 2011 five ounce uncirculated coins will also be issued sometime during the year, but the schedule does not mention either.

Of course, the Mint points out that the schedule will be updated as needed to allow for additions like the five ounce coins as well as changes to the dates of some coins as the Mint's opts to release them earlier or later.
