The 2013 Mint Set and 2013 Proof Set have now sold out at the United States Mint. Based on sales figures, the Mint Set will have the lowest mintage for the product type in more than five decades.
Update: The 2013 Mint Set is shown as available once again on the US Mint’s website, so the product remains available for now.
The sell out of these two core annual sets follows the earlier sell out of the 2013 Silver Proof Set in early February and the 2013 Limited Edition Silver Proof Set in May. Various 2013-dated component annual sets still remain available, which include a portion of the coins within the full annual sets.
The 2013 Proof Set originally went on sale March 28, 2013. Each set contained 14 proof quality coins struck at the San Francisco Mint, comprising the cent, nickel, dime, five America the Beautiful Quarters, half dollar, Presidential Dollars, and Native American Dollar. The sets were priced at $31.95 each.
Based on the latest available sales report published earlier today, sales for the product had reached 802,328. Since the sell out occurred after the reporting date, there will likely be some additional adjustment to the figure next week.
While the last reported sales for the product is at a historically low level, it fails to undercut the recent low established by the 2012 Proof Set which had sold out at 794,002 units. The 2012-dated set currently commands a strong secondary market premium.
The 2013 Mint Set originally went on sale June 4, 2013. Each set includes 28 uncirculated quality coins struck at the Philadelphia and Denver Mints. The coins include the cent, nickel, dime, five quarters, half dollar, and five $1 coins from each facility. These sets were originally priced at $27.95 each.
The latest available figures indicate total sales of 365,408 units. Once again, this number may see some movement in next week’s report.
At this point, the last reported sales undercut last year’s final sales and suggest the lowest mintage for the product type since 1961. The 2012-dated set had achieved a sell out with last reported sales of 392,224 units and currently drives a premium on the secondary market.
