If you have not purchased your 2011 commemorative coins, you have until 5:00 P.M. Eastern Time to place your order before the U.S. Mint takes the coins off sale. For 2011, the two commemorative programs are for the Medal of Honor and the U.S. Army. Both programs feature a proof and uncirculated $5 gold coins, silver dollars, and clad half-dollars.

Surcharges for both programs are $35 for each gold coin, $10 for each silver coin, and $5 for each clad coin. For the Medal of Honor Commemorative, the surcharge will be paid to the Congressional Medal of Honor Foundation. Surcharges collected for sales of the U.S. Army Commemorative will support the construction of the National Museum of the United States Army at Fort Belvoir, Virginia.

The U.S. Mint reports that there are plenty of coins available. To purchase the coins, visit the U.S. Mint online catalog at catalog.usmint.gov.
