The U.S. Mint will begin taking orders for the 2018 American Eagle proof gold coins on March 1. These will be offered as the set of four, or as individual coins in the sizes of 1-ounce, half-ounce, one-quarter-ounce, and one-tenth-ounce.

To order coins from the U.S. Mint, visit its website at www.usmint.gov or call 800-872-6468.

There will be a sports card and coin show on March 4 at the Boys & Girls Club of Chicopee at 580 Meadow St. Hours are 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. There is free off-street parking. There is a small admission charge, but door prizes are drawn every hour.

The 2019 budget proposal by the Trump administration calls for ending Saturday mail deliveries — enacting a special one-time, first-class mail rate increase — and giving more flexibility for the U.S. Postal Service to raise postage rates. These actions are intended to get the postal service back into a profitable state.

If these proposals go through, there would probably be many more stamps issued to cover the proposed rate changes. Several congressmen who represent rural districts have said that the proposal to eliminate Saturday mail deliveries is “dead on arrival.”
