If passed, the commemorative set will include a $5 gold coin, silver dollar, clad half-dollar, and a five-ounce silver proof coin that collectors call the “hockey puck.” The bill sets mintage limits are 100,000 gold coins, 500,000 silver dollars, 300,000 clad half-dollars, and 100,000 proof hockey pucks.
The 300,000 limits for the clad half-dollars are likely to be increased when the bill goes through markup.
The bill sets the surcharges at $35 for each of the $5 gold coins sold, $10 for each silver dollar, $5 for each clad half-dollar, and $50 for each hockey puck. Proceeds will be paid to the U.S. Olympic Committee.
If the program sells out, the U.S. Olympic and Paralympic Committee will receive $15 million from the sale of the commemoratives.
Of course, all this will be moot if the bill does not pass Congress and is not signed by the President.
