Early orders of the 2014 American $1 Coin and Currency Set are shipping and, having picked up a few ourselves, we now have a video and several photos of the set and its money.
Money of the 2014 American $1 Coin and Currency Set.
This product is a pleasant surprise and a nice find for $13.95. Actually, it’s a steal because of the Denver-struck Native American $1 Coin with its three unique finishes. And, the coin is not in any other product sold by the U.S. Mint.
Treatments for the 2014-D Enhanced Uncirculated Native American $1 Coin: WHITE = STANDARD UNCIRCULATED FINISH; BLUE = STANDARD FROST FINISH; and YELLOW = LIGHT FROST FINISH
The set’s uncirculated Series 2013 $1 Federal Reserve note printed for the Federal Reserve Bank of Kansas City is what it is. It’s most attractive to money collectors who purchased multiple sets since many are getting bills with sequential serial numbers.
Before jumping into the photos, here’s a video of the 2014-D Native American $1 Coin. As the coin is moved in the light, it’s pretty easy to see the interaction of the finishes and distinguish them.
And now for the photos… Captions under each offer more information about the set, $1 coin or $1 bill

This photo shows the reverse or tails side of a 2014-D Enhanced Uncirculated Native American $1 Coin. The light laser frost treatment used in areas of the Native American man and his wife contrast nicely with the standard laser frosting featured on the coin design’s background. A standard uncirculated finish is used on the inscriptions of NW, UNITED STATES OF AMERICA and $1.

The $1 coin is relatively easy to remove from the set. With the set open and as shown in the photo above, you can pop off the capsule’s top to remove the coin.
An uncirculated 2013 $1 Federal Reserve Note printed for the Federal Reserve Bank of Kansas City is also held with the set’s tri-fold folder.
The Kansas City Federal Reserve Bank designation appears right above the dollar bill’s serial number
