As of Feb. 6, the U.S. Mint's U.S. Marshals Service 225th Anniversary commemorative coins have brought in $1.45 million for the planned U.S. Marshals Museum in Fort Smith, Ark., which is to receive the proceeds from surcharges (if the Mint's costs of producing all the coins are covered) on each of the gold, silver and copper-clad coins, according to the Southwest Times Record in Fort Smith.

According to an earlier report, the museum's board is banking on $4 million to $5 million from the sale of the coins.
