The United States Mint has unveiled a 2013 Product Schedule that already encompasses a total of forty-seven different products. This new schedule includes release dates ranging throughout the year from January 8, 2013 through December of 2013.
Products covered in the new schedule include releases such as annual sets, American Eagle coins, America the Beautiful Quarters®, America the Beautiful Five Ounce Silver Uncirculated Coins™ and the 2013 Commemorative Coin programs including the 2013 Girl Scouts of the USA Centennial Silver Dollar and the 2013 5-Star Generals Commemorative $5 Gold Coin. The schedule even alludes to a set that, as of yet, the US Mint has not announced.
That set is currently being called the "American Eagle West Point Two-Coin Silver Set" by the US Mint. Its name, however, is subject to change as indicated by the disclaimer added by the Mint in the new schedule.
A product schedule as comprehensive as the one released is likely to be of interest to many collectors. It marks a departure from recent Mint procedure followed this year in which release dates were typically added only a few months in advance.
"Getting this schedule out now shows that we are listening to our customers and are committed to them," Michael White, U.S. Mint spokesman, commented along with the schedule release. "Hopefully, this will allow our customers to better plan their purchases for next year. We will be issuing the prices for the products very soon. As soon as prices are available, we will pass them along. But again, in the short term, we felt that getting information to our customer was important."
" Also, please note that this list will be updated periodically as specific dates for products being released later in the year have yet to be set. All dates are subject to change."
