It will cost U.S. Mint customers about $500 to buy a complete set of the medals the Mint is issuing in 2018 as companion pieces to the World War I American Veterans Centennial commemorative silver dollar program.

The five 1-ounce .900 fine silver medals, celebrating the contributions of American Armed Forces in the war, will be available only in five sets, each in an individual pairing with the commemorative silver dollar. The silver dollar in each set will be identical to that being sold singly. The dollar and respective medal in each set will bear a Proof finish.

The Dangers of Counterfeits”The quality of the coins is getting better, and so are the counterfeits. Europe is experiencing the same problems seen in the United States, warns Coin World's correspondent in Germany.

Each coin and medal set will cost $99.95. Pricing for the medals and the silver dollar was released Dec. 6 in the Federal Register.

All of the announced products for the World War I American Veterans Centennial commemorative silver dollar program go on sale Jan. 17.

The Proof and Uncirculated versions of the 2018 World War I American Veterans Centennial program’s commemorative silver dollar will be offered first at an introductory price and then at a slightly more expensive regular price. The Proof coin will be offered initially for $51.95 and then at a regular price of $56.95. The Uncirculated version will go on sale Jan. 17 for $48.95, with its regular price being $53.95. Mint officials have not confirmed how long the introductory prices will be in effect.
