The boxed coins struck by Gibson were randomly inserted into shipments to customers who ordered the numismatic product. Sales for the coin opened to the public at noon Eastern Time July 13, priced at $76.

Pre-sales of the coins via the U.S. Mint’s Subscription program were available for weeks before the release. Pre-sales by subscription were also open for the Uncirculated 2023-P Morgan dollar, which also became available for sale and shipping on July 13.
