You heard it here first.
The US Mint website has been updated with a slight change to the release date of the Dolley Madison first spouse gold coin. Instead of being released on November 15th, like the James Madison dollar coins, Dolley will be joining us the following week.
Here is the last of the new products schedule listed on the US Mint website:
|November 15||James Madison $1 Coin Bags and Rolls|
|November 19||Dolley Madison – First Spouse Gold Proof Coin|
|November 19||Dolley Madison – First Spouse Gold Uncirculated Coin|
|November 19||Dolley Madison – First Spouse Bronze Medal 1 5/16″|
|November 19||First Spouse Four-Coin Proof Presentation Case|
|November 19||First Spouse Four-Coin Uncirculated Presentation Case|
The last First Spouse coin took much longer to sell out – I wonder if this will be the first coin to actually see a lower-than-planned mintage number? The current plan is to mint 20,000 proof and 20,000 uncirculated versions.
Update (11/17/2007): If you are interested in buying James Madison original bank rolls, please see my post here.
