ACTION:

Notice.

SUMMARY:

The United States Mint published a document in the Federal Register on January 6, 2009, outlining the new pricing methodology for numismatic products containing platinum and gold. Since that time, the price of platinum and gold has increased considerably, and is approaching the upper bracket of the pricing grid. As a result, it is necessary to expand the pricing grid by adding additional pricing brackets.
