The inaugural price was $1,590 per coin. Pricing for the coins can change if the spot price of gold changes beyond a range established in the Mint’s pricing grid for precious metals coins containing gold.

The 2018 version of the Uncirculated coin struck at the West Point Mint with the W Mint mark is limited to a maximum product release of 10,000. The Mint placed a cap on the maximum number of coins offered based on annual sales of the numismatic product over the past several years.
