2015 March of Dimes Special Set Announced

The United States Mint has just revealed preliminary details for a 2015 March of Dimes Special Set, which will be released as part of the commemorative coin program.

The program was authorized under Public Law 112-209 to recognize and celebrate the 75th anniversary of the March of Dimes Foundation. Up to 500,000 silver dollars will be issued with an obverse design containing profile portraits of Franklin D. Roosevelt and Dr. Jonas Salk and a reverse design depicting a baby cuddled in the hand of a parent.

The individual proof and uncirculated versions of the coin are currently scheduled for release on March 13, 2015.

With a release date to be determined, the 2015 March of Dimes Special Set will include the proof silver dollar along with two specially issued Roosevelt Dimes. The special coins will be a 90% silver proof Roosevelt Dime struck at the West Point Mint with the “W” mint mark and a 90% silver reverse proof Roosevelt Dime struck at the Philadelphia Mint with the “P” mint mark.

Both of the dimes included in the set would represent the first of their kind. Up until now, all modern 90% silver proof Roosevelt Dimes have been struck at the San Francisco Mint and carried the “S” mint mark. The reverse proof finish has never been used for the Roosevelt Dime series.

At a later date, the US Mint will provide additional information on the special product including the on-sale date, pricing, product limit, and household ordering limits.

Collectors will recall the last specially issued coin of the series as the 1996-W Roosevelt Dime. This coin was included within the 1996 Mint Set and issued to celebrate the 50th anniversary of the series.

    The Mint at one time had the message on that product page that it was sold out and no longer available. Now that they’re gone back on that, no one will be able to take their word on something being sold out again.

    Exactly right! And remember, this is NOT THE US MINT doing this, this PFS WEB doing this crazy stuff. The Mint just wants to go to work and stamp out coins and designs…

    The circ. #’s are out maybe the next thread((?)) Seems large on the Pres’s but they may have pressed two out by now. Quarters headed up looks like ! Any pic’s of the lite stamped edge Sac’s or maybe the #’s on the bills that went with those so we know where to start looking should be more of those out there? But might have to grind off the edge of one to get one of the one of’s Good Luck To Us All:>:>:>:>:>:>:>:>:>:>

    After having some time to contemplate this MOD $1 Coin , I’ve come to the conclusion that this will be one of the most low interest Coins of all times.

    Put it right there with the Eunice Shriver.

    I doubt Mike on HSN is bidding on coins..or even buying coins. I could be wrong on the first sentence. But he does not buy the coins for the show nor does he plan the merchandising. HSN has thousands of product managers and merchandisers along with producers who plan the product. He is just there to talk about it. He is good at making it sound personal. All of the HSN coins drop ship from First Commemorative Mint in NY. The few times I have ordered a medal or something unique from HSN as a token I have been sorely dissapointed. I will pay a premium for a good presentation but the product from FCMINT is always so cheesy, Those boxes they show are about as cheap as they come.

    And…not real fond of the March of Dimes design. Why can’t the US Mint break barriers and give us stunning symbols of America. Wildlife..high relief…different versions of the silver Eagle…like a 5 ounce high relief. Rather we get modern commems with a hodge podge of generic designs squeezed onto one surface.
