Core U.S. Mint annual sets consisting of the Proof Set, Silver Proof Set and uncirculated Mint Set each contain collector versions of coins seen in every day circulation. These include the:

  • Lincoln cent
  • Jefferson nickel
  • Roosevelt dime
  • 2012 America the Beautiful Quarters (El Yunque National Forest of Puerto Rico, Chaco Culture National Historical Park of New Mexico, Acadia National Park of Maine, Hawaii Volcanoes National Park of Hawaii and Denali National Park of Alaska)
  • Kennedy half-dollar
  • Native American $1 Coin
  • Presidential $1 Coins (honoring Presidents Chester A. Arthur, Grover Cleveland, Benjamin Harrison and Grover Cleveland)

The annual Mint Set offers two uncirculated versions of each of the above coins for a total of 28. Fourteen of them are minted in Denver while the other fourteen originate from Philadelphia. Conversely, the Proof Set contains a single coin of each denomination and design for a combined total of fourteen, and those are all produced in San Francisco. The Silver Proof Set is nearly identical except its dime, quarters and half-dollar are composed from 90% silver for a total silver weight 1.34 ounces.

When released, the annual sets and other products will be available directly on the U.S. Mint website at http://www.usmint.gov/catalog or by calling 1-800-USA-MINT (872-6468).

As a reminder, it is not unusual for release dates on the Mint’s product schedule to change, and prices for silver coins and sets are subject to adjustments in the event of significant fluctuations in silver prices.

It’s the end of March…Where are the 2012 Five Ounce series…where are the Spousal gold coins. Is the U.S. Mint holdi9ng off for the price of silver & gold increase they know is coming.

The Mint is probably waiting until the 2011 Five Ouncers current inventory decreases. The 2012 ATB’s look to be even better detailed than the previous. I believe that if silver stays low, they should sell quickly.

No, the deputy director doesn’t know how to do his job. We should have seen a complete year schedule by now, not bits and pieces. Also excessive inventory of a previous year should have no effect on the current year offering dates. If anything it should help predict their initial minting numbers better but not when they should be minted/released. This all comes back to poor (if any) planning on the part of the deputy director of the mint.
