Yesterday the 2008 Presidential Dollar Proof Set went on sale. Similar to a few other recent product releases, these sets cannot currently be ordered using the US Mint’s website. Orders must be placed by phone at 1-800-USA-MINT.
The sets include all of the 2008 Presidential Dollars, which honor James Monroe, John Quincy Adams, Andrew Jackson, and Martin Van Buren. The price for the set is $14.95 each.
The coins contained in this set will overlap with the regular 2008 Proof Sets, which will contain the same 2008 proof Presidential Dollars. However, this set can still be a nice addition for collectors looking to get their hands on the coins earlier since the regular proof sets won’t be available until later this year. It can also make a nice stand alone set for collector’s focusing on the Presidential Dollars only.
Update: The 2008 Presidential Dollar Proof Set is now available online. The delay was less than one day.
