The United States Mint announced pricing for the series of 2022 National Purple Heart Hall of Honor Commemorative Coins, including its colorized silver dollar. Not surprisingly, their introductory and regular prices match those of companion type issues from the 2022 Negro Leagues Baseball Commemorative Coin Program which launched yesterday.
Introductory prices are $74 for the proof silver dollar, $69 for the uncirculated silver dollar, $35 for the proof half dollar, and $33 for the uncirculated half dollar.
As for the colorized silver dollar, it’s unique to the 2022 Purple Heart Hall of Honor Commemorative Coin Program, it has a much more limited production (25,000 pieces) compared to most other numismatic silver dollars, and it will not have a discounted price. It will be $95.
Finally, prices for the gold commemorative products change with market conditions and are determined by the Mint’s pricing matrix for gold coins.
Intro prices are $5 less than regular pricing and have a 30-day window from release.
Release dates for the Purple Heart coins are still “To Be Determined.” They had initially been scheduled to appear alongside the 2022 Negro Leagues Baseball Commemorative Coins.
As of this writing, only designs of the coins are available — there are no coin images.
The National Purple Heart Hall of Honor collects, preserves and shares the stories of courage and sacrifice of Purple Heart recipients. The Purple Heart is awarded to those who have been wounded or killed by enemy action while serving in the U.S. military. The Purple Heart commemoratives are authorized under Public Law 116-247.
