Theodore Roosevelt Coin and Chronicles Set Sold Out

Near the end of last week, the 2013 Theodore Roosevelt Coin and Chronicles Set sold out at the United States Mint. After roughly eight months of availability, the product had reached sales of around 15,000 units.

The sets originally went on sale December 17, 2013 and there was a fair amount of build up leading into the release. Nearly a year beforehand, the United States Mint’s 2012 Annual Report made mention of a special set to honor President Theodore Roosevelt. The product was expected to be popular due to his unique contribution to American coinage.

Each set contained the 2013-S Proof Theodore Roosevelt Presidential Dollar, the Bald Eagle National Wildlife Refuge System Centennial Bronze Medal, and a one ounce 99.9% silver Theodore Roosevelt Presidential Medal. The first two items had been previously released, but the third item represented a unique offering. This was actually the first time in United States Mint history that the medal had been struck in 99.9% silver.

Opening sales for the product were somewhat tepid with 5,754 units reported sold in roughly the first ten days. The pace of weekly sales quickly dropped off. The latest sales report indicates total sales of 15,023 units, but that figure will likely see adjustment in the next report.

There was a long delay in the initial shipment of the sets, which may have put a damper on enthusiasm. The first sets would not ship until about four months after the initial on-sale date. I provided images and impressions of the set I received for my personal collection in this post. Another factor weighing on sales may have also been that the unique inclusion was not a coin, but a non-legal tender medal. I discussed this in the previous linked post.

discovery

The United States Mint does continue to accept orders for the 2013 Theodore Roosevelt Presidential Discovery Set. This was a separate product targeted towards younger collectors which included an uncirculated 2013 Theodore Roosevelt Presidential Dollar along with historical content and activities indicated as age appropriate for 8-12 year olds. Sales for this product have reached 5,932 units.

    I’m sure the shipping delay had an effect on sales but I think the mint was banking on the unique medal, but few people collect medals. Even the 911 medal fell short.

  2. Ikaika says

    TR was also known for cracking down on the big monoplies back in the early 1900’s. I purchased this set because of the historical background. I am happy I did.

    We need someone like TR to end this non-sense that happened at the ANA show with the JFK release!

  3. Tinto says

    I’m glad I was able to buy one before they sold out, it’ll go well with the National Wildife Refuge silver medals.

  4. fmtransmitter says

    @Tinto: I actually replaced the bronze with the silver in the set. Looks stunning together…Love this set and never have plans to “flip” it but “flip out” over it….

  5. fmtransmitter says

    No A Bob, simply because it was meant to stay inside the set, not be removed. I love not seeing that coin in a slab of death actually, it doesn’t belong there, it belongs inside the set imho…

  6. KEITHSTER says

    I have 3 each sealed in it’s own box so I’m still smileing:) I only ordered them that way because it was free shipping at the time and yup 4 months later they shiped free. Now am thinking it could be the first and last silver Presidential? There was talk of a survey asking if you would buy others if they made them? Got mine because of a Nixon Agnew one I picked up at an estate sale many years ago and thought the silver one would be way cool here’s to that! Any one try to find out how many of the original ones were minted? Hope they make some others but if not thats ok too. Have a good one And Good Luck With It>:>:>:>

  7. fmtransmitter says

    I truly believe once collectors actually “Discover” this set and it’s low mintgae, prices will increase. The 911 Medals were great and I adore those too but this was a special President, so special he was added to Mt. Rushmore, that to me says a lot about the man…

  8. says

    This really was an outstanding set, and despite the lack of a “hot” coin, I’m very pleased with it. All the pieces look attractive and are well placed in the set, and the packaging/presentation is top notch. An excellent product. I was hoping they might do one like it for JFK, too.

    Congrats to everyone who picked one of these gems up!

    As for the “young collectors” set, I thought and still think it looks terrible.

  9. Blair J Tobler says

    CO – agreed – Coin and Chronicles Set looks awesome. Very glad I got one. Also agree on the “young” set. Why do they think they have to talk down to kids? Kids are far more intelligent than most people are willing to admit.

  10. VA Rich says

    Orion from the RAM arrived today! 🙂 Looks great, coin is far more vibrant than the previous two.

  11. VaBeachSteve says

    I would never have bought this if it wasn’t for VaRich talking it up so much a couple months back. I think the Mint did a great job on putting this together

    @Cagcrisp- I happen to fall in that group of cancellations for the Kennedy (3 to be exact). It’s not because I wanted to flip them, it’s just after they announced it would continue till 12/31 I started thinking about the other coins I needed to get beforehand. I collect the unpopular First Spouse Series and I need to get the first two for 2014.
    @ Louis- Did you also get the 5 oz Brittania for this year? I pre-ordered one a month ago and my CC just got pinged and processed this weekend so It should have been shipped today. That is one amazing looking coin and I’m excited to get it in my hands.

  12. thePhelps says

    I bought this set as well and waited the months for it to ship. I was also quite pleased with it, and have never had a problem with medals.

    I think many coins released today – that don’t circulate – are esentially medals with a denomination on them. Who in their right mind is going to spend a $5 gold piece?

    This as well as the packaging that came with last years generals – were some of the nicer presentations the mint has done lately.

  13. AkBob says

    I too, love this set. I still have three sealed/unopened sets as well. Not sure what I’m going to do with them but I know they have a good home now and am very happy that I ordered these. Even though it’s a medal it’s still very cool and would really like to see more silver medals as some others have mentioned here. It’s not like we are going to spend our silver coins at a store anyways, LOL The denomination is a plus for coins but definitely not necessary for a medal, it’s a medal but silver is nicer than the bronze medals that I collect too. Anyone, has the mint produced any gold medals in the past? Just as a guess, I would think there may be a couple/few out there but I’m not aware of them specifically but it seems that there are some. Someone please educate me and maybe some others here. Thanks in advance.

  14. AkBob says

    OT – I just checked the Coin Vault’s website and it looks like they have sold almost all of the JFK Kennedy’s with the special FDOI labels already or they sent them back to their parent company Sivertowne. I am just very surprised that they have sold out of them so fast. Yesterday they had a truck load and today hardly any. They still have the 4 coin set, one from each mint and the ANA show for a cool $20K. The sad thing is when you watch their show, they have no problem with what happened last week and as a matter a fact, one of the hosts, Scott said he wished he could have been in the “stampede” rather than be in TN doing the show!!! Not me, thank you very much :))) Still can’t believe they sold close to 200 of them with the special labels that quickly. Truly amazing

  15. VA Bob says

    I really like this set. Where the Mint screwed up was putting that $1 token in instead of making a true silver dollar commem. The token and the bronze were/are previously available (years ago in the case of the bronze). People got the token in other sets, no matter if they wanted another or not.

    Lots of thought went into the packaging. It’s unfortunate that due to IMO laziness on the part of the Mint on 2/3’s of the hardware choices, that it may discourage more of these CC offering in the future. The price tag was a little steep as well considering the low price of silver, even though it was in line with other sets. You got to have a $ amount on that silver to drive purchases.

  16. VA Bob says

    AKBob – No reason to wonder why the country is in the state of affairs it’s in when we have glaring examples right here in our hobby. If it was up to me CV would have choked on those coins. Wish I could see the faces of those that bought when they go to sell. They will make out if gold ever breaks $5K an ounce.

  17. Sith says

    @VaBeachSteve – IMO anyone who collects the FS coins can cancel anything they want without reproach.

  18. fmtransmitter says

    Gold Congessional Medals AkBob…Issued every year for various reasons inclusing your bronze code talkers, all were/are being issued in Gold to respective tribes for their invaluable role to help this Country during a time of war.

  19. fmtransmitter says

    I agree with cag, they can SAY they sold or make it look like they sold ANYTHING they want. Until I see invoices or feedback from said buyers, I call it poppycock…Sold to another dealer…

  20. VaBeachSteve says

    Thanks Sith! …. lol….. There’s just something about those Ol’ girls that I like. Although I must admit I’ll be glad to wrap this series up soon … It puts a hurting on my wallet!

  21. Naplesmike says

    Interesting…I don’t post here much, but read daily. The CV is imposing a two coin limit on their baseball hof half dollar from the young collectors set with the Chicago ANA label. How ironic? This whole experience is leaving me wondering about the future of my beloved hobby.

  22. AkBob says

    VA Bob & Cagcrisp – I agree with your comments about them being “Sold Out”. I just saw on their website that it said Sold out and now that the show started at 6:00 P.M. today, the host said they had sold them all but we can take that with a grain of salt. Sure, when gold spot is at 5K, they’ll recupe their money if they decide to sell. These will fall flat on their faces and won’t be worth anymore than any other graded 69 or 70 without the special label. I saw a auction tv show yesterday selling the 2 piece Kennedy set (clad) in OGP with a signed COA from Mr. Peterson at the mint selling for $299.99!!! He only had 22 of them . I sure hope Mr. Peterson is getting his cut and the guy on the TV show stated he has a “special relationship” with him (Mr. Peterseon/Mint) :((((( Maybe he does and maybe he doesn’t but if I was MR Peterson, I would think twice about signing coa’s for dealers/tv shows. Even if there isn’t anything being done wrong, it just doesn’t look/sound good.

    FM – Yes, I knew about those, I mean ones that we can actually purchase like the bronze/silver medals. As far as I know, we can’t purchase those unless I’m mistaken. Correct me if I have it wrong please.

  23. Tinto says

    Maybe tv guy was talking about the regular COA and hyping it up ?? If not, then this to me is visible manifestation of the Mint turning to the Dark Side.

  24. Dan in Fla says

    I bought a dozen of these Teddy Roosevelt medal sets and hope there is a market someday.

  25. Chibi says

    I wonder how the FDR & Eleanor related items will do. Still enough greatest gen folks to have interest ?

  26. Hidalgo says

    I really like the Theodore Roosevelt Coin and Chronicles Set. I bought one set and it has a honored place in my collection.

    I am reading several comments about the number of sets sold (approximately 15, 000). The number sold is actually higher than the number sold for the following sets from last year:

    * 2013 Five Star Generals Profile Collection Set – 10,929
    * 2013 Girl Scouts Centennial Young Collectors Set – 5,747

  27. halfpint says

    Hey, sorry just had to tell this, tv guy has 1 glod kennedy for $100,000 and another for $75,000 people are NUT!!!!!!!!!!! I would love to have that much to invest in gold eagles , with no labels

  28. Louis says

    @VABeachSteve- I sure did and got pinged over the weekend too. It will be the most expensive UK coin I’ve ever bought, but I was so taken by the art deco design and the mintage is low enough that I think it will get a bump when they are all gone. Even if not, it should be one hell of a beautiful piece to enjoy. I like this year’s design so much I also ordered the proof set.

  29. Tonyw says

    I agree with Phelps – it is a beautiful silver coin / medal – I don’t flip but would love to see this set go up – I think it was a sleeper!

  30. VA Bob says

    Louis – I bought the small presidents medals a few years ago – from JFK up to Bush II. I wish they’d bring all the presidents back and the album they used to sell to put them in (Only Washington and Lincoln of the pre JFK’s are available. It would be a great gift for a young collector or history buff.

  31. VA Bob says

    I can’t believe the CV is sell 2014 W ASE’s MS 69 NGC in a Chicago ANA show label (no ER) for 100 bucks. Amazing! A coin still available from the mint for $44! Your chance of getting a 69 direct from the mint are pretty darn good. $66 for a tiny piece of paper.

  32. Louis says

    for those who have bought the Arches bullion 5 oz- how was the quality? I just got a 3rd and it is not very good. this one seems to have a lot of issues, GSM was much better.

  33. VA Bob says

    My Arches was nice. But with the amount of open surface, I can see were getting a good one can be a problem.

  34. Ikaika says

    @ Louis

    This seems to be the case for the Arches bullion 5 ozers. I got mine from APMEX. Lots of marks. This might be a case where spending $60 more to get the MS69DMPL pays off. MCM had them for $199. Not sure if they still do.

  35. A Bob says

    AKBob, you should check out the book National Commemorative Medals of the United States Mint by John Dean. Some of the gold medals included can be found. The American Art Series can also be considered medals but they get no respect.

  36. sharks2th says

    @Louis – I bought a PCGS MS-69DMPL from mcm and had to send it back for an exchange. It had what looked like scuff marks in two places on Washington’s face. They were very distracting and I don’t see how it was graded a 69, even of it was due to die polishing. They were very accommodating in doing the exchange. They were out of the regular 69DMPL so they sent a Mercanti one as a replacement. As others have said, I wanted the grade not the label so I took the Mercanti labeled one. The second one was closer to what I expected. There were still die polishing marks I can see but they aren’t distracting like the gouges in the first one. It looked like a cat had scratched Washigton’s face. The arch side looks ok.

  37. madronya says

    A Bob – I second your recommendation, John publishes a great book that presents the range of silver and gold national commem medals produced since the 60s, all authorized by Congress, and some of them much more artistic and interesting than anything we have seen recently. Many are very low mintage but under-appreciated, so they are often affordable.

  38. Louis says

    Thanks for the Arches comments. I hate those huge slabs and my first 2 don’t seem too bad in retrospect.

  39. Jerry Diekmann says

    VABob – you are right that the Mint missed the boat by not having a silver coin in the TR set. It’s not really the Mint’s fault, though, that there wasn’t a silver commemorative coin for TR – that major oversight can be laid at the feet of our dysfunctional Congress, which failed to pass any legislation honoring the 150th anniversary of TR’s birth in 2008. The oversight is compounded by the fact that only one commemorative coin was issued that year – for the bald eagle. Maybe Congress can make up for its lack of respect for a great president by authorizing a commemorative dollar coin in 2019, on the occasion of the centenary of TR’s death in 1919. it’s hard to believe he was only 60 years old when he died.

  40. Jerry Diekmann says

    VA Rich – Remember that you will need to view the Orion coin you received from the Australian mint upside down to get the persective that we skywatchers in the northern hemisphere would see it. The Mint got all the major stars, but the fainter stars are shown much too bright compared to the more prominent stars as we see them in the sky – see for yourself in a couple of months late at night when the constellation starts tom rise in the east. It is well placed for viewing at night from November through February. The constellation is almost evenly divided between the northern and southern hemispeheres, and so can be seen well from anywhere in the world, winter in the north and summer in the south. Still a nice looking coin, but $120.00 seems awful steep for 1 ounce of silver. Just my opinion – as a coin collector and an amateur astronomer.

  41. VA Rich says

    Anyone seen the ever so elusive US Mint email shipping confirmation, usually shows 1 week to 4 months after clicking on the “Place Order” button? Maybe they’re hung up in the NSA servers at the moment.

    I’d thought we would have seen something by now, afterall, we have 40,000 coins ‘shovel ready’!

  42. VA Rich says

    Jerry – as always, enjoy the informative post! Though trust me, my head is still spinning over this JFK roll out and in anticipation of receiving a shipping confirmation, so it didn’t take long to get the RIGHT perspective on the Orion constellation when I looked at the coin last night! I got mine for $109 AUD which in the sea of World, I thought was in line,unfortunately, it costs to play with these World coins.

    There’s a neat constellation app you can put on your smart phone, all you do hold your phone up to the sky and it identifies constellations over head relative to your position. You gave me an idea to play around with the app and coin one evening, see how they look, thanks!

  43. VA Rich says

    I keep coming back to the Great Sand Dunes design and thinking what an awesome picturesque design it is and how AMAZING it would look if it were enhanced in various layers of frosting (and of course, the coin trespassers took a hike!). So many different landscapes captured in the design.

  44. MarkH says

    Ikaika-I decided some time ago (after reading all I could here) that if I were to buy any of the bullion 5 oz-ers it would be slabbed MS69s for the very reason some mentioned here today. I noted all the problems with the 2010s and various other select bullion coins and the MS-69s I bought came with a slight ($60-70) premium but don’t have any issues at all. As to the 5oz -P coins I have mostly bought them in OGP and have no complaints, so I’ll continue doing that.

    A general comment on Modern Commmoratives-they (except for the most recent issues, BHOF and the Kennedy, which I’ll just lump in there with them) seem to be dirt cheap to me. I just bought a bunch of them and the premium for proof $1 silver coins over spot is only about 2.2x. Maybe all the hype (and resultant heartaches for the label chasers) will keep a lid on the market for a while. To me it’s a buyer’s market which suits me just fine.

  45. thePhelps says

    @Rich…somebody is trying to roll that scam out again? $299 for the coin and $1250 for the shipping. I’ve seen a number of people get burned on that scam before.

  46. VA Rich says

    thePhelps – I thought ebay would be all over that running some program in the background to catch those sorts of listings, will be interesting to see if the listing runs its course.

  47. merryxmaxmrscrooge says

    Medals? Yes plenty of gold ones. From eBay:

    Price 1 oz Mark Twain is about $1,600 Buy it now. Wish I could get one for Xmas, Jacob Marley.

  48. Mark Rex says

    Well in the listing it clearly says additional are only $7 extra shipping! Someone should stick it to him for trying this stunt. So 1 would be $299 (item) + $1250 (shipping) for $1549 total. 2 would be $598 ($299×2 item) + $1257 (shipping) for $1855 with each additional being $306 each.

    VaRich…. I am on it 😉 What a DEAL!!! Wonder if It’ll be hand delivered from an armed guard on a Brinks truck? Or maybe Silvertowne is the seller trying to recoup some of their money through shipping fees.

  53. Jon in CT says

    I now have a UPS tracking number for my Kennedy gold coins and they are marked as “Shipped” but UPS is, so far, unaware of that tracking number.

  54. says

    VARich,

    My order last week was at 12:05. My friend’s credit card was pinged Thursday and we’d hoped for a shipment shortly afterward, though nothing so far. We are still in process/in stock and reserved. I assume PBGS is probably to blame for the holdup.

    Jon,

    It sounds like the shipping label was just created, the tracking should appear in UPS’ systems within 24 hours and likely much sooner. You may be among the very first to receive a shipment. I am hoping the floodgates will open and we’ll see/hear about more shipping labels created throughout the day.

  55. VA Rich says

    2cents – I have do not have a dealer’s license, if I may quote Mongo, “VA Rich only pawn… in game of life”

  56. says

    Jon in CT, Well I guess the big boys told the mint that they have their millions and to go ahead and ship to the losers! BUWA HA HA HA!

  57. Pittsburgh P says

    Glad to see people are getting tracking numbers… Hope they go out today. Was hoping it would be Friday or yesterday but 5 business days isn’t terrible for the Mint! I knew it wasn’t gonna be weeks like some thought but I’d hate to be the guy who got coin 40,001… Wonder what that wait time will be?

    2cents if your order was placed prior to Jon’s or anyones that has a shipping label your order may be on hold or if you ordered the max they may be checking your CC which they do even if its not your first order. Dealers have no impact on shipping order(not supposed too at least)

  58. gatortreke says

    My Kennedy gold order completed at 12:02 pm was issued a tracking number this morning. Like Jon in CT, the shipping info doesn’t show in UPS yet but this is normal, it will appear later today in their system with an update. I’ve created a UPS account/profile that e-mails me when shipments are en route with notice of when to expect delivery so I should get notification from them as well later today.

  59. says

    Pittsburgh P, I only ordered 1 at 12:30. I’m not in a big hurry. IMHO I think the impact the big dealers have on shipping is their will call orders being handled before shipping small package orders.

  60. Pittsburgh P says

    @2cents I do see what you’re saying and misunderstood your sarcasm & answered a rhetorical question. Sry

    I could be wrong but I don’t believe that the big guys have orders filled prior to anyone else. Since the limit was 5 there really isn’t any large quantity orders, like with bullion products, so only small package orders are being shipped. That’s why the controversy about the big boys busing people in to shows & paying
    people to call & place online order to skirt the household limit.

  61. Ikaika says

    This is one of the few cases that buying a graded slab might actually save you time and money. Louis mentioned that he was on his 3rd Arches and still no go. Although graded slabs are not a guarantee, you have a better chance to get a nicer coin. Another option is: if you have a dealer friend that will allow you to cherry pick through his inventory 🙂

  62. joseph says

    It doesn’t matter how many they’ve sold and how much they’ve sold. it is 0.75 OZ Gold and only worth the price of 0.75OZ gold.

    I can tell you all kind of stupid and crazy things ppl did, it make no sense to those stick with their plan and get those things that suckers used to own at a fire sales price.LOL

  63. Pittsburgh P says

    @Joesph your point being?
    Isn’t how many & how much the same exact thing the way you use it?
    “It doesn’t matter how many they’ve sold and how much they’ve sold. it is 0.75 OZ Gold and only worth the price of 0.75OZ gold.”

    Imo it is worth more than .75 oz of gold… How much more remains to be seen.
    To each his own & doing or buying what they like at whatever price they want is neither stupid nor crazy. Ill conceived maybe but it doesn’t effect you or I.

    Seems like you were saying the same thing AKBob was saying but in a mean incoherent way.

  64. says

    If the price of Gold stays above $1,300.00 with Wednesday’s afternoon fix we will see a price Increase sometime around noon EDT for All products based on the Mint’s grid. The Gold Kennedy would increase $37.50.
    Looking back at past history you Should see some increased buying activity trying to save the $37.50 (and other Mint products based on the grid).
    I keep a weekly excel spreadsheet that contains the AGE’s and Buffalo’s Sales and I can tell by looking at the Sales Numbers on a weekly tab as to whether we have a spike up/down in pricing or not….

  65. Tinto says

    @Ikaika @Louis @MarkH

    IMO quite likely the raw ATBs sold were looked over and deemed not worthwhile to submit to TPGs. One has to buy in bulk mint sealed boxes to get unsearched ATBs is my guess.

  66. David W says

    I bought this set, but skipped the cheesy young collectors set. I love the silver medal, and would buy more if the mint were to come out with more silver medal designs. I don’t mind too much paying a premium above the price of silver since the design and craftsmanship of this is far superior to much of the silver rounds available.

  67. M says

    I had two of these but returned 1 for a refund. The silver medal was covered in smudges and fingerprints. The other one was perfect. I do prefer the packaging of the Lincoln set from 2009 over this as all the components can be removed without destruction. The Roosevelt set also has a delicate case…it seems to wear easily with multiple viewings. Are these medals actually made in Philly or outsourced to Medallic Art Co? I have heard multiple stories on this.
