Tomorrow, May 6, 2014 at 12:00 Noon ET, the United States Mint will begin accepting orders for the 2014 Presidential $1 Coin Uncirculated Set.
The product includes uncirculated quality coins featuring the 29th to 32nd Presidents of the United States of America, Warren G. Harding, Calvin Coolidge, Herbert Hoover, and Franklin D. Roosevelt. There are eight coins included in each set, with coins from both the Philadelphia and Denver Mints containing the “P” and “D” mint mark for each President.
The obverse of each coin includes a portrait of the President, along with inscriptions of the President’s name, the motto “In God We Trust”, the order of the Presidency, and the dates served. On the reverse of each coin is an image of the Statue of Liberty with inscriptions “United States of America” and “$1”. The edge of each coin contains incuse lettering with the date, mint mark, and motto “E Pluribus Unum”.
All eight coins are packaged within a display folder with biographical sketches and portraits of each President. The packaging allows the obverse, reverse, and edge of each coin to be viewed within a protective, rotatable, blister.
Pricing is $16.95 per set plus applicable shipping and handling. Orders fulfilled through the US Mint’s Online Subscription Program are eligible for a discounted price of $15.25. There are no product limits or household ordering limits imposed.
The new product will represent the first appearance of all four 2014 Presidential Dollars in “uncirculated” quality. Next week on May 13, the uncirculated coins will be released within the full 2014 United States Mint Uncirculated Coin Set. In recent years, the US Mint has used a higher quality brilliant uncirculated finish for coins included in the various uncirculated coin sets.
The US Mint has previously released “circulating quality” examples of $1 coins featuring Warren G. Harding and Calvin Coolidge within numismatic bags, rolls, and boxes as well as the First Day Coin Covers. Proof versions of all four of the coins have been released within the 2014 Presidential $1 Coin Proof Set, 2014 Proof Set, and 2014 Silver Proof Set.
