The mintages for modern commemorative coins issued by the United States Mint are dependent upon the total number of coins sold to collectors during the specified offering period. The number of coins issued under each program is also subject to a certain maximum mintage indicated in the authorizing legislation. In general, coins with the lowest mintages are the most valuable for their respective denominations.

Commemorative coins have experienced low mintage levels for a variety of factors. Over the years, some programs have carried themes or designs that did not experience a high degree of popularity with buyers, resulting in lower sales. The number of other numismatic products offered concurrently has also played a factor. During and immediately following periods with a large number of different commemorative coins issued, the number coins sold for each program has suffered.

Collector preference for proof versions compared to uncirculated versions also plays a factor. In almost all cases, the total sales for proofs is higher than for uncirculated coins. Different packaging options can have an impact, as coins included in multi-coin sets or special collectible products can experience higher sales than coins only offered individually. Finally, in recent years, the price of precious metals seems to have had an impact. Gold and silver coins have become more expensive, prompting some collectors to cut back on their purchases.

Some of the most well known low mintage modern commemorative coins include the uncirculated version of the 1997 Jackie Robinson $5 Gold Coin, numerous issues from the 1995-1996 Olympic commemorative program, and the uncirculated version of the 2000-W Library of Congress $10 Gold and Platinum Coin.

The modern commemoratives with the highest mintages primarily consist of the earlier issues. After nearly 30 years without commemorative offerings, there was a high level of pent up demand and collector excitement. The 1982 George Washington Half Dollar sold more than 7 million coins across the proof and uncirculated offerings. This high level was exceeded by the number of 1986 Statue of Liberty Half Dollars and Silver Dollars sold.

The pages of this website dedicated to each individual modern commemorative coin include the maximum authorized mintage and final mintage. All of the final mintages are listed in the table below for easier access.
