By CoinNews.net

Time is running out to order 2008 Bald Eagle Commemorative Coins, the United States Mint reminded collectors in a notice Wednesday. Sales for all options end Friday, December 12, at 5 p.m. (ET).

All three legal tender coins (gold, silver & clad) celebrate the successful recovery and restoration of the Bald Eagle to America’s skies and the upcoming 35th Anniversary of the Endangered Species Act on December 28.

Surcharges payments of $35 per gold piece, $10 per silver coin, and $3 for each clad commemorative are made to the American Eagle Foundation (AEF), which is not-for-profit dedicated to protecting the majestic Bald Eagle and its habitat.

"This is the last chance for collectors and investors to order these popular and beautiful precious metal coins from the federal government," said AEF president Al Cecere. "After December 12th, they’ll only be available from coin dealers and shopping networks at much higher prices."

The maximum mintage for all Bald Eagle Commemorative Coin options, including sets, is limited to 100,000 $5 gold coins, 500,000 silver dollar coins and 750,000 clad half-dollars, with no order limits in place.
