Annual Uncirculated $1 Coin Set, Quarters Set Starts Sept. for US Mint

by Rhonda Kay on August 31, 2012 · 7 comments

The first week of September starts off with two collector coin sets from the United States Mint. The first numismatic product showcases Hawai’i Volcanoes National Park Quarters in its own Three-Coin Set, and the other features all of the U.S. Mint’s $1 coins in the six-coin 2012 Annual Uncirculated Dollar Coin Set.

Hawai'i Quarters Set, Annual Uncirculated Dollar Coin Set

The Hawai’i Volcanoes Quarters Three-Coin Set and the 2012 Annual Uncirculated Dollar Coin Set are the first two products released by the U.S. Mint in September

Following the Labor Day holiday, on Tuesday, September 4, Hawai’i Volcanoes Quarters Three-Coin Set will hit the market for $9.95. One quarter in the set is proof quality from the U.S. Mint facility in San Francisco, while the other two quarters are uncirculated quality from the Philadelphia and Denver facilities. Demand will initially be high for the set, if past issues are an indication.

Orders will be accepted for the Hawai’i Volcanoes Quarters Three-Coin Set on this U.S. Mint page.

On Thursday, September 6, the 2012 Annual Uncirculated Dollar Coin Set will go on sale. Its price is yet to be announced. Six uncirculated versions of this year’s dollar denominated coins will be together in one presentation folder with brief descriptions for each. The coins include:

  • Four Philadelphia produced 2012-P Presidential $1 Coins — honoring Chester Arthur, Grover Cleveland (first term), Benjamin Harrison and Grover Cleveland (second term)
  • One Denver minted 2012-D Native American $1 Coin
  • One West Point struck 2012-W Uncirculated American Silver Eagle

Upon its launch, the U.S. Mint will be offering the Annual Uncirculated Dollar Coin Set through this U.S. Mint product page.

As usual, sales will commence at 12:00 noon ET on their respective issue dates. An alternative to ordering online is calling the U.S. Mint’s toll free number, 1-800-USA-MINT (872-6468).

Should be titled, “US Mint’s Future TBD”.

To be clear this is a poke at the Mint and not Coin News. I continue to be impressed by the number of articles that are published by Coin News on a weekly basis. tx

Well, we all know who to blame for this lack of communication (TBD coin release dates) and incompetent scheduling ability.

well i think the 2012 annual uncirculated dollar coin set will cost us $59.95 a set. last one is $37.95.

Anybody really think that the Volcano ABT’s will still be at $204 at issue time in 3 weeks? How high does silver have to climb for there to be an adjustment?

Another thing the mint, i.e. Dep Dir Peterson, is loathe to make public – the price of silver at which the different offerings will change their prices and by how much. They can do it for gold and platinum, why not silver too?

*ATB, not ABT……yeah, I was looking for that chart also….if silver keeps climbing, it will be interesting to see where they pull the trigger.

Still and all, I think the unc $ set is a decent set to get for those who collect unc $. The set by itself isn’t anything special but it puts them all in one place and the price is $5 less than annie’s guess. I think a proof $ set would work well too. The only way to get a proof Native American $ is in a standard proof set or silver proof set. And since the proof sets are S mint the S mint SAE would have been a good one to put in a proof $ set for this year, too (discounting all the hoopla about US Mint lies and deceit and diluting of the mintage of the S mint SAE).
