The Breast Cancer Awareness Commemorative Coin Program became available for sale on March 15 at noon.
To celebrate the launch of the coin program, BCRF President Myra Biblowit was joined by Congresswoman Carolyn B. Maloney (D-NY), Senator Heidi Heitkamp (D-ND), Congressman Pete Sessions (R-TX) and Acting Deputy Director of the U.S. Mint David Croft, as well as breast cancer survivor Melissa Miller at the U.S. Capitol.
The three-coin program includes the first-ever minted gold coin in a pink hue, along with silver and clad. The U.S. Mint placed a limit of one pink-gold coin per household for the first 24 hours.
Gold coins are limited and expected to sell out quickly. Find coins available for sale online through the U.S. Mint.
The Breast Cancer Awareness Commemorative Coin program, championed by Congresswoman Maloney, has the potential to raise critical funds for breast cancer research. Surcharges of $35 for each $5 gold coin sold, $10 for each silver dollar sold, and $5 for each half-dollar coin sold will be donated to BCRF.
The coins will be available for sale through Dec 31, 2018 or until they are sold out.
