Bald eagle coin sales end Dec. 12
by Joseph Bakes

Sales of the U.S. Mint's bald eagle commemorative coins will end on Dec. 12, but that leaves plenty of time to add these beautiful gold, silver and clad coins to your collection or to obtain them as holiday gifts.

Sales of the coins include a surcharge to support the work of the American Eagle Foundation of Tennessee, a not-for-profit organization that seeks to fully restore our national symbol to the nation's skies.

The coins are available in gold, with a denomination of $5, at $319.95 for the proof version and $309.95 for uncirculated. The proof silver dollar is $43.95, while the uncirculated is $37.95. The silver-clad half dollar is $10.95 for proof coins and $8.95 for uncirculated.

A set containing an uncirculated silver dollar and a bronze bald eagle medal from the National Wildlife Refuge System Centennial Medal Series, is being sold for $44.95. The proof silver dollar also will be available in the American Legacy Collection of 2008 coins for $100. More information on this set will be available in the mint's gift catalog, which is due out soon.

The mintage for all bald eagle options is limited to 100,000 gold coins, 500,000 silver dollars and 750,000 half-dollars.

To order, go on the mint's Web site, usmint.gov, or call (800) 872-6468.
