Today, April 27, 2015 at 12:00 Noon ET, the United States Mint will begin sales of the 2015 Uncirculated Coin Set. This long running core annual set containing uncirculated coins is often referred to as the “Mint Set” by collectors.
The 2015 Mint set includes two folders, containing 14 uncirculated quality coins each, from the Philadelphia and Denver facilities. The 28 coins in total are blister sealed into the folders, illustrated with flag imagery on the front and including coin specification information and a certificate of authenticity inside.
The following coins are included in each set:
- 2015 P & D Lincoln Cents
- 2015 P & D Jefferson Nickels
- 2015 P & D Roosevelt Dimes
- 2015 P & D Homestead National Monument of America Quarters
- 2015 P & D Kisatchie National Forest Quarters
- 2015 P & D Blue Ridge Parkway Quarters
- 2015 P & D Bombay Hook National Wildlife Refuge Quarters
- 2015 P & D Saratoga National Historical Park Quarters
- 2015 P & D Kennedy Half Dollars
- 2015 P & D Harry S. Truman Presidential Dollars
- 2015 P & D Dwight D. Eisenhower Presidential Dollars
- 2015 P & D John F. Kennedy Presidential Dollars
- 2015 P & D Lyndon B. Johnson Presidential Dollars
- 2015 P & D Native American Dollars
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.
Each 2014 Uncirculated Coin Set is priced at $28.95. This price reflects an increase of $1 compared to the regular price of the prior year set. There are no stated product limits or household ordering limits in place.
In recent years, the United States Mint’s annual sets have experienced declining sales. This seemed to culminate with the 2012-dated Proof Set, Silver Proof Set, and Mint Set, which each sold out early at historically low sales levels. These sets each went on to see higher prices on the secondary market. In the following year, the 2013-dated Proof Set and Silver Proof Set both saw higher sales, although the 2013 Mint Set marked another new low. The 2014 Mint Set still remains on sale with last reported sales of 334,560, finally breaking the streak of declines.
