It appears that the 2013 United States Mint Uncirculated Coin Set, also referred to as the 2013 Mint Set, has sold out. The product had previously been marked as “sold out” on the US Mint’s website last month, only to be made available once again.
Update: Again, the 2013 Mint Set has returned from “sold out” status and is available on the Mint’s website. I have reached out for an explanation and will relay any information.
All three of the US Mint’s 2013-dated core annual sets for have now sold out. The 2013 Silver Proof Set sold our in early February, and the 2013 Proof Set sold out in mid-July.
The 2013 Mint Set originally went on sale June 4, 2013, about fourteen and a half months ago. Each set includes a total of 28 uncirculated coins struck at the Philadelphia and Denver Mints including the cent, nickel, dime, five quarters, half dollar, and five $1 coins from each facility. The sets were priced at $27.95 compared to an included face value of $13.82.
Based on the figures from the latest sales report posted today, the 2013 Mint Set has reached sales of 368,553 units. This figure comes in below the last reported sales figure for the 2012 Mint Set at 392,224 units. The 2012-dated set currently carries a strong premium on the secondary market with recently completed eBay auctions showing prices around $65 to $70 compared to the issue price of $27.95.
If the last reported sales number for the 2013 Mint Set stands, it would also mark the lowest sales for the product going all the way back to 1961.
