UHR Gold Coin Order Limits Change, Viking Treasure, 2009 Lincoln Cent Proof Sets

Welcome to Something About Coins! Popular topics on the web right now are about the U.S. Mint changing limits on the UHR $20 Gold Coins, the Viking treasure soon to go on display, and the 2009 Lincoln Cent Proof Sets.

Starting on Monday, the 31st, the US Mint will allow everyone to purchase up to 25 of the UHR $20 Gold Coins. Originally, in January, the order limit was one per household to allow fair distribution, but the U.S. Mint changed that limit to 10 in late July, and sales skyrocketed. They're raising it again.

A great Viking treasure, found in 2007, will go on display next month. Two England museums are preparing for the display of the medieval coins and jewels.

Another 2009 Lincoln proof cent product went on sale this week. Since there are several Lincoln penny products on sale by the mint right now, this linked article is great because it briefly describes each of the four different sets and prices.  The sets include the United States Mint 2009 Proof Set, the United States Mint 2009 Silver Proof Set, the 2009 Lincoln Bicentennial One Cent Proof Set, and the upcoming United States Mint Lincoln Coin & Chronicles Set.

Finally, the U.S. Mint made an interesting annoucement late Thursday. It is inviting new artists to design coins. United States Mint Director Ed Moy said "We are very excited about this unique program and its latest call to tap into the best artistic talent in the country."

Here are some UHR $20 Gold Coins on the secondary market:
