US Mint increases prices on silver products

The United States Mint recently adopted a new strategy for pricing products in its silver numismatic products portfolio. Prices for products containing silver will change EFFECTIVE October 13, 2020-applicable to silver products already on sale/those yet to be released.
In order for the United States Mint to cover rising costs, meet its fiduciary responsibility to operate at no net cost to taxpayers, and return money to the Treasury General Fund, re-setting silver prices is necessary.
The Mints goal, as a financially responsible Federal agency, is to always provide the best quality numismatic products while maintaining fair prices.
The first objective is to ensure that the numismatic portfolio (all product lines together) be self-sufficient and cover all associated costs. The new silver prices reflect a sound business decision aimed at meeting these obligations.
(No tax dollars are used to fund numismatic operations.) The United States Mint will continue to look for operations optimization and cost reduction efforts to deliver superior quality numismatic products at a fair price.
