Today, May 13, 2014 at 12:00 Noon ET, the United States Mint will begin sales of the 2014 Uncirculated Coin Set, a product also referred to as the Mint Set. Together with the previously released 2014 Proof Set and 2014 Silver Proof Set, this completes the US Mint’s trio of core annual sets for the current year.
The 2014 Mint Set includes two folders containing 14 uncirculated coins each from the Philadelphia and Denver Mint facilities. The 28 coins which form the complete set have a collective face value of $13.82.
Specifically, the following coins are included in each set:
- 2014 P & D Lincoln Cents
- 2014 P & D Jefferson Nickels
- 2014 P & D Roosevelt Dimes
- 2014 P & D Great Smoky Mountains National Park Quarters
- 2014 P & D Shenandoah National Park Quarters
- 2014 P & D Arches National Park Quarters
- 2014 P & D Great Sand Dunes National Park Quarters
- 2014 P & D Everglades National Park Quarters
- 2014 P & D Kennedy Half Dollars
- 2014 P & D Warren G. Harding Presidential Dollars
- 2014 P &D Calvin Coolidge Presidential Dollars
- 2014 P & D Herbert Hoover Presidential Dollars
- 2014 P & D Franklin D. Roosevelt Presidential Dollars
- 2014 P & D Native American Dollars
The 14 coins from each facility are sealed in blisters and displayed in a folder. The folders are illustrated with an image of the American flag accented in blue for Philadelphia and in red for Denver. The interior of the folder contains a certificate of authenticity and coin specification information.
The uncirculated quality coins included in the set are struck on special presses using greater force than circulating coins. This results in sharp and intricately detailed images.
Pricing for the 2014 United States Mint Uncirculated Coin Set is $27.95, unchanged from the prior year. Orders fulfilled through the US Mint’s Online Subscription Program are eligible for the discounted price of $25.15. There are no stated product limits or household ordering limits in place.
As seen for the US Mint’s other core annual coin sets, sales levels and the corresponding mintages for the Mint Set have continually drifted lower in recent years. The 2012 Mint Set generated some attention and strong secondary market premiums when it sold out in late January 2013 at last reported sales of 395,443 units, representing the lowest sales for the product type since 1963.
The 2013 Mint Set went on sale on June 4, 2013 and still remains available on the US Mint’s website. Total sales for the product to date have reached only 359,185 units, which leaves open the possibility for another fresh low upon the eventual sell out.
