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.
