When gold edged above a $1,100 an ounce average for a week on the London Fix, the Mint increased prices in accordance with its policy to reflect market prices. The change took place Feb. 24.

The price of First Spouse coins increased by $25 and gold Buffaloes by $50. The proof First Spouse coins went from $704 to $729, uncirculated First Spouse coins went from $691 to $716 and 2009 Buffalo gold coins increased from $1,360 to $1,410.

And in its first week of sales, the coin honoring Disabled American Veterans sold more than 98,000 coins, almost one-third of its total mintage of 350,000.
