American $1 Coin and Currency Set Back on Sale

The United States Mint has resumed accepting orders for the 2014 American $1 Coin and Currency Set, which contains a 2014 Enhanced Uncirculated Native American Dollar.


The product originally went on sale November 20, 2014. As discussed in previous articles, the US Mint’s press release and product page originally stated that the $1 coin included in the set carried an “uncirculated finish” simply making the product a repackaging of a coin and $1 note readily available elsewhere.

Some readers had noted the term “enhanced uncirculated” appearing within images of the packaging. When the first sets began to arrive in the hands of collectors on Monday, November 24, the use of a different finish was apparent. The growing awareness of the special nature of the product seemed to lead to a jump in sales and the product went out of stock on the same day.

The US Mint has since officially confirmed the use of the enhanced uncirculated finish and described the use of three different finishes. The product page was also updated to indicate a quality of “enhanced uncirculated” for the coin.

Opening sales for the product had reached 9,720 units through the reporting date of November 23, 2014. In this week’s sales report, the cumulative sales total rose to 14,073. The 2014 American $1 Coin and Currency Set carries a product limit of 50,000 units and is priced at $13.95.

Although orders may be placed for the set on the US Mint’s website here, the status is indicated as “Back Order”.

The US Mint’s website FAQs describes the status as follows:

Back Order: When products are in “Back Order” status, this means that the product is available for sale, however there is no inventory in stock and a future ship date is displayed on our website. Products in this status can still be ordered online or through the customer contact center.

    What I write is my prospective which to most of you has no meaning.First of all our host as I see is working to keep us informed and I applaud him as should you .These offering have become corrupt not by the mint but by those choosing finicial gain which seems to be dominate..for ever action there is a reaction believe it or not there are still grass root collectors of modern yes there is a lot of crap but crap to you may be a potential gem to others.Marketing adjustment buy the mint is reaction to guess what your actions.Seem the todayers are screwing up guys like me that buy selectively yes what we choose.Ok even I see fault in the mint choices of distribution of this current product but stop and listen your juvenile repores are the cause.This is my opinion and I wish all collectors of moderns reach there goal,bless the true collector and thanks to our HOST

    anybody think there will be in upward movement in silver in the upcoming year?

    Sure Mike, then down, then back up again.
    Surly you can see the trend, take advantage of it…a little at a time Mike. Think long.

    “Seem the todayers are screwing up guys like me that buy selectively yes what we choose”

    Stop playing the victim card. No one is screwing anyone here. Everyone has/had the same ability to order these, either online or by phone. No one here had special treatment from the mint to order these coins. No insider knowledge. I’m sorry if this upsets you, but your selectively can cause you to miss out from time to time.

    Life moves fast, so you have to keep up.

    Senior and others,

    The US Mint is the source of more than a few coins for retailers, there are no lower prices anywhere other than the prices found at the US Mint, if not there, where will retailers find their inventory. Flippers are legally engaging in commerce, where is the foul?

  5. Dave says

    No offense, but HELLO! Have you folks calling the Mints, CS dept not been reading this blog?

    “Flippers are legally engaging in commerce, where is the foul?”

    Again, (for the record), I am not a flipper; however, how is engaging in commerce a foul? I don’t follow??

  7. Dave says


    Oops! I read that post incorrectly (commerce); I agree with you 🙂

    “The real cool Dave” LOL!

    “What I write is my prospective . . . ”

    Okay — here I really did miss something?

    Senior — what the Hell are you talking about??

  9. Dave says


    Although it could be your “prospective,” I think you mean “perspective?”

    Aunque esto pudiera ser su “anticipado”, pienso que usted quiere decir ‘perspectiva?’

    The Coin World Digital Newsletter (By Paul Gilkes , Coin World, Published : 12/03/14) —

    Had an interesting infographic: It outlined how the US Mint will shatter the 2013 sales record of ASE bullion coins; predicted at end of 2014.

  11. fmtransmitter says

    @jhawk92: Nice launch! The website went to refreshing seconds before launch, had to run in living room to watch…Millions were watching live stream!

  12. Frankie says

    Since it’s impossible now to add the American $1 Coin and Currency Set to one’s wishlist I guess it’s safe to assume that it has indeed sold out.

  13. Keep Calm & Stack On says

    Hey Cag – to your Wednesday 4’ish post – my phone had a melt down (literally), I missed the WHOLE THING! Just as well, I’m good with the ones I order a two weeks ago and have enjoyed reading/catching up over the 200+ posts that occurred during that time – good to see the enthusiasm and folks caught up in a clad offering (& a not-so-dull December)!

    Hello US MINT – time to start posting the anticipated 2015 Product Schedule – you guys usually have released the schedule to deviate from by now, thanks!

  14. Keep Calm & Stack On says

    Bob – I agree, I’m in on FDR. It’s FDR, plus I like the stamp and dual medals element (has a posterity factor to it)!

  15. Keep Calm & Stack On says

    Frankie – IF SO(?), what’s your estimation where the fleabay price trend will head? Stagnation at $29…, or Up, Up and Away?

    And by the way, I think you and Bob called nailed it your assessment from a day or two ago (just FYI)

  16. NC_Stacker says

    Fmtransmiter & Jhawk92, couldn’t see it with my own eyes, fogged in :-(. Was always able to see the launches from the beach.

  17. cagcrisp says

    I’m Looking 1st week January for US Marshal coins. I would Not think the non Gold pricing would have been put up 09/30/14 IF the Mint was Not going to release Early January 2015. The much sought after Civil Rights coins went on Sale week 1…

  18. cagcrisp says

    Jobs Number Much Stronger than Estimated. Straight line down on Gold because of this…Stronger job numbers means interest rates Should go up sooner than later. Interest rates going Up is not good for Gold…Higher interest rates are Good for my Big Banks…

  19. Bernie in FL says

    Did anyone already have the US Mint ship your Thursday’s C&C order that has a higher number then mine here USM027643xx 12/4/2014?

    I have heard that some have shipped, but I’d be interested if the ones that got your shipped from Thursday are higher or lower than mine………..

  20. Mr. Kairu says

    Hi all, just curious about something off topic.. is it normal for an order that included both the C&C set and an Unc. JFK set to be split up into two? I got an email showing the C&C sets have shipped but not the JFK set… glad they shipped but why wouldn’t they wait to ship it all?

  21. stephen m says

    VA Bob, The D mm on the 64 peace dollar sounds correct. I purchased directly from DC and it was long ago. I need to get his coins out to take a look see. Memory not as sharp as it once was. It must be his 2009 ASE’s with the DC mm. Thanks. @cagcrisp, Interest rates going up, like life, is taking forever. Looks as if the metal prices have nowhere to go but down for an unknown time? @all, Anyone else finding interesting serial #’s on the one dollar bill besides Mark? Someone here said the bills were picked through before packaging but I don’t know.

  22. CasulaCollector says

    @Mr. Kairu
    From my experience, that is normal. They ship as products are available to ship.

  23. CasualCollector says

    Sorry if this is a double post — my handle was misspelled (so it says awaiting moderation)

    @Mr. Kairu
    From my experience, that is normal. They ship as products are available to ship.

  24. Mr. Kairu says

    Ok thanks for the clarification I was not aware they did that. Good to know for the future!

  25. stephen m says

    cagcrisp, I wish them luck because I fit that category. Interest rates going up and metals coming down equals a buying opportunity.

  26. Keep Calm & Stack On says

    cag – can you repost the total sales predictions for the Gold JFK please? You’ll know why shortly

  27. cagcrisp says

    Someone help me out on Fees for the Bay and the Pal. I don’t sell on the Bay so I have No Idea.

NO fee to List and Only 2% from the Pal. How can that Be? Just someone that doesn’t sell on the Bay and those are teaser rates? Help me out here?!!!

    Most ebay fees at 10% with another 3% going to paypal

    If you open a Basic store, it’s 6% for coin sales, and 3% to PP, therefore 9% off the top.

  30. cagcrisp says

    This is how the Mint’s website works. You go to “Gold Coin” and hover over the Gold Buffalo and it says” Add to Bag”. WELL…It let’s you Add to Bag and Checkout but then it has in red letters “This product is sold out and no longer available for sale.”

    SO……….you can put it in you bag but you can Not Purchase…IT is Not Listed as Out of Stock….

  31. jhawk92 says

    @fmt…yes my brother is in Oregon. Guess I misunderstood your question. Must have been lack of sleep. Totally successful launch today. Video is up on YouTube.

  32. jhawk92 says

    @fmt and NC…yeah, it was a good launch. Only got to see it for about a minute before it went into the clouds but have reviewed the video of launch. Splashdown was equally successful and getting to see the parachutes deploy was great. Nice to be a part of that program.

  33. mac says

    Isn’t there supposed to be a “remind me” function for out of stock items? I thought I saw it the other day but now I can’t seem to find it.

    It is probably sold out now but you never know with the mint.

  35. merryxmasmrscrooge says

    Speaking of Kennedy, Congrats to NASA and for the successful launch, along with all the thousands of people who helped make this dream come true. Wish I could be part of it.

  36. achmed says

    the coin and currency set can be ordered at the moment (Backorder) with a household limit of 5. Former orders will be regarded. So if you have already ordered 5 or more you will not be able to order once again. I think that is ok, especially for those collectors who have not been able to order before.

  37. RayMN says

    They’re available for sale again although on Back Order. I was able to order 2 for my collection! Yay! (2014 Coin and Currency Set)

  38. randy says

    Thank you to all who comment on this site! That being said, I ordered a fair, H/L of 5. Thank you.

    Great Site!!!

  39. A Different Jeff says

    Noticed this evening that my status on the C&C went from ON HOLD back to BACKORDERED. I think that is a good sign, which should mean that when product arrives, my order will be shipped, as this was Dec 4 order.

  40. says

    Depletion of the existing inventory is believed to have been the result of collectors suddenly learning that the set’s 2014-D Native American dollar coin bears an Enhanced Uncirculated finish and is available only in the set.
