Today, January 26, 2015 at 12:00 Noon ET, the United States Mint started accepting orders for the 2015 Congratulations Set. Along with the previously released Birth Set and Happy Birthday Set, this represents one of the Mint’s numismatic products targeted towards gift giving occasions.
The 2015 Congratulations Set contains only a single coin, the 2015 Proof American Silver Eagle, which is struck in 1 troy ounce of 99.9% silver at the West Point Mint and carries the “W” mint mark. This coin was previously released in the standard individually packaged option on January 2, 2015.
The product is targeted as a gift for multiple occasions where “congratulations” would be appropriate with suggestions including a wedding, anniversary, retirement, graduation, or milestone birthday. The coin is packaged in a folder illustrated with streaming ribbons with a space to write a personalized message. The certificate of authenticity and coin specifications are on the back of the folder.
Each set is priced at $50.95. This is $2 higher than the $48.95 price of the standard individual version of the 2015 Proof Silver Eagle. There are no product or household limited indicated.
Congratulations Sets from previous years still remain available for sale on the US Mint website. The 2013-dated set has sold 17,860 units to date and represents the only product available directly from the Mint which contains the 2013 Proof Silver Eagle. The 2014-dated set has sold 7,017 units to date.
