While both of 2024’s three-coin commemorative programs are experiencing rather slow sales, sales for the Greatest Generation program are ahead of sales for the Harriet Tubman commemoration.

The U.S. Mint kicked off sales for the Harriet Tubman program on Jan. 4, and the Greatest Generation coins became available Feb. 29.

The latest sales reports for both programs were issued by the bureau dated June 23.

Each coin program calls for a maximum combined production and release in Proof and Uncirculated versions of up to 50,000 $5 gold coins, 400,000 silver dollars and 750,000 copper-nickel clad half dollars.

Each program offers a limited-edition three-coin Proof set, each with a maximum release of 5,000 sets.

The pricing for the gold coins is subject to weekly movement in response to market changes and in accord with a pricing matrix the Mint uses to determine prices for coins containing precious metals.
