According to their website, time is running out for collector's to purchase several products from the US Mint. Some of these are individual coins while others are rolls or bags of coins and even some medals.
Probably the highest profile coin to be soon removed from availability is the Louis Braille Bicentennial Silver Dollars in both proof and uncirculated versions. These coins were initially released for purchase in March of 2009 and have a mintage limit of 400,000 across all product options.
A surcharge has been added to the sale of these Braille coins with that money being sent to the National Federation of the Blind to aid in continuing their work. Sales of the coins will end on December 11th, 2009.
For those who may not be aware, Braille was the individual who invented the reading and writing system used by the visually impaired today that utilizes a combination of raised dots that can be felt by someone's fingers.
On December 3rd, the First Spouse Series one-half ounce gold Van Buren Liberty coins will no longer be available. Both proof and uncirculated versions are still in inventory. These coins were originally released in November of 2008.
