By CoinNews.net

Casting aside the glum economic specter hovering over the fast approaching holiday season, the United States Mint on Monday reminded everyone that they have a collection of coins to joyfully consider for that special gift-giving occasion.

"Our gift catalog showcases the exceptional artistry of genuine United States Mint coinage," said United States Mint Director Ed Moy. “The featured products are well crafted and make exceptional gifts. We encourage customers to place their orders early."

The Mint’s 2008 catalog is set for release on October 27 and it will include a series of new commemorative coins as well as old favorites, most of which are already available for purchase directly from the Mint’s website.

The American Eagle Silver coins are most noticeably missing from the above list. Uncirculated coins are still available on the Mint’s website. However, the proof versions were pulled in August due to insufficient silver blanks to make them. Have collectors seen the last of the 2008 American Eagle Silver proof coins?

In important date reminders, the U.S. Mint indicates they will guarantee delivery of any in-stock item anywhere in the United States by December 25 on orders received before December 8 with standard delivery selected. The express delivery deadline is December 15.
