No sooner had the United States Mint announced that sales for the two 2013 commemorative coin programs would end Dec. 16 than the decision was made to extend the sales deadline another two weeks.

Collectors now will have until noon Eastern Time Dec. 31 to place their orders for individual coins and specially packaged numismatic products for the 2013 Girl Scouts of the USA Centennial silver dollar program and the three-coin 2013 5-Star Generals commemorative coin program.

The ordering deadline extension was announced Nov. 6.
