2014 American $1 Coin and Currency Set Photos

by Mike Unser on December 1, 2014 · 25 comments

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.

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.

Treatment for 2014-D Enhanced Uncirculated Native American $1 Coin

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 obverse or heads side of a 2014-D Enhanced Uncirculated Native American $1 Coin. A standard uncirculated finish is used for Sacagawea, for part of her clothing, for her baby, and the inscriptions LIBERTY and GOD WE TRUST. The field of the coin has a standard frost finish.

2014-D Enhanced Uncirculated Native American $1 Coin - Reverse, 1

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.

2013 $1 Federal Reserve Note - Front

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.

Thank you coin news. I got mine today.

jim December 1, 2014 at 4:34 pm

That will cost me $15 to order and then $15 to return the inevitable defective product. the fact the mint forces you to pay to return for its defective material is galling.

Jerome Goldstein December 1, 2014 at 5:03 pm

Please let me know about future availability of the $1 native American coin & currency set.

larry December 1, 2014 at 5:29 pm

What is so special about the dollar bill?

Senior December 1, 2014 at 8:58 pm

Jim, Cheer up give the defective sets as stocking stuffers that is if delivery is pre Christmas.The search for perfection only makes some wealthy but not any of us collectors.Collecting is suppose to give pleasure.

Larry,
I had jested that the paper Dollar Bill in this set was the one that the Native American $1 Coin will never replace.
However, I have seen that NGC will be offering a “Coin and Currency Set Label” for grading this 2pc set. This is not the first time that this has been done.

Kahoola December 1, 2014 at 9:50 pm

It did not seem that there was anything special about the dollar bill. No fancy serial numbers, stars, bells or whistles. The were new and crispy if that is special.

RonnieBGood December 1, 2014 at 10:08 pm

Larry – One more point, as if this matters much, “… Buyers of multiple sets are finding that the serial numbers on their $1 bills are in sequential order”.

JesustheLionofJudah December 1, 2014 at 10:37 pm

I think the point of this set was the Enhanced Uncirculated Sacagawea Dollar, which I guess is a unique offering…

Joe December 1, 2014 at 11:10 pm

To bad they didn’t sell the coin by itself.

Mike Unser (CoinNews.net) December 2, 2014 at 4:19 pm

The article was updated with set sales of 14,073 as of Nov. 30.

larry December 2, 2014 at 5:55 pm

thanks, guys

What is an “inevitable defective product”, anything that doesn’t grade a MS70?

Kahoola December 2, 2014 at 10:04 pm

One set had a blotchy dark area on the obverse. Then there were linear marks that were not surface scratches, but clearly visible, under the laser layering. Maybe a planchet scratch that survived the striking process?

No any news come out about this set.

Annie December 9, 2014 at 8:50 pm

If you take out the coin and want to send it for grading. Does the coin came with a capsule or not?. Anyone. Thanks.

Charles K. Miller December 12, 2014 at 4:09 pm

How about a view of the all-important date and MM since the edges are more likely to show wear?
