Notification of New Pricing Methodology
Document Number: 2011-21831
Type: Notice
Date: 2011-08-26
Agency: United States Mint, Department of Treasury, Department of the Treasury
The United States Mint is implementing a new pricing methodology for its commemorative gold coins to mitigate the effect that fluctuating gold commodity costs has on the pricing of these products. The new pricing methodology is based primarily on the London Fix weekly average (average of the London Fix prices covering the previous Thursday A.M. Fix through the Wednesday A.M. Fix) gold prices, which reflect the cost of the gold bullion that these products contain. As required by law, commemorative coins must be sold at a price equal to the sum of the face value of the coins, the surcharge with respect to such coins, and the cost of designing and issuing the coins (including labor, materials, dies, use of machinery, overhead expenses, marketing, and shipping). This pricing methodology will allow the United States Mint to change the prices of these products as often as weekly so they better reflect the costs of gold for these coins.
