The 2018 Breast Cancer gold coin is more than 18K. 18K is 75% gold, the coin is 85% gold.


My mistake 18/24=.75 not .85 . Even so, the BCA half eagle is still, I believe, unique at this composition versus all other US gold coins which I think are either .9 or .9999

No problem. Yes it is unique with its metals composition to try and get the pinkish hue. I bought one for my wife when it was released since she's a breast cancer survivor. I thought the price was high but gold has gone up since then. Melt value still less than what I paid but it's a collectable.

Thanks for the informative post, commems. Though I no longer collect modern gold commemoratives, the Constitution Bicentennial $5 commemorative was among my favorites.

I had been collecting the $5 gold commemoratives but have only purchased one in the past few years due to the spot gold spike. The Jacky Robinson uncurculated had been the key but some of the more recent issues may have less mintages.
Where can I find mintage #'s for these coins?

Breast Cancer example as we have been discussing them.

@commems, thanks for the link. As I see the 2019 American legion unc. $5 has the lowest mintage of the $5 series to date exceeding the Boys town $5 by 10 units.
