Priced at $13.95, the set has been listed mostly as "out of stock" and resultantly off sale since Nov. 24. Aside from a few hours last week and right now, the set’s product page has had a "Remind Me" function to receive an alert when it becomes available again. Now, the page has a "Back Order" button that allows ordering.

In a change, a new household ordering restriction of 5 sets has been implemented. As reported here Tuesday, 38,299 or 76.6% of the maximum 50,000 sets have sold as of Sunday, Dec. 7.

2014 American $1 Coin and Currency Sets may be ordered online from the U.S. Mint, right here.

I also received no notification when the sets were again available, even after requesting notification.

Dave December 11, 2014 at 10:01 am

In response to I.L. McDougal: I also rcd NO NOTIFICATION from the Mint. I found out they were back on thru an email from coinnews.net last night then
placed my order via telephone call to the U.S. Mint Cust. Svc. “800” number.

Dont recall a household limit ever being added after the first 70% already sold with no limits. Gotta be a first. What were we afraid of, the bulk resellers already have 1000’s of them.

The mints marketing and distribution strategy of this set has a lot of folks frustrated,my theory is the set will remain on backorder until they have reached the 50,000 sets promised,but who knows.Anyone that serously wants this offering hit the backorder and be patient.

Eddie December 11, 2014 at 1:13 pm

WOW!
I just got my third email from the Mint stating that my order I placed last night was SHIPPED!
Good news for you all…

Dave December 11, 2014 at 2:44 pm

Yo Eddie I just got a Mint email as well telling me my 4 sets shipped out at 12:35pm EST today too !!

Jerome Goldstein December 11, 2014 at 3:20 pm

Even though I signed up to be notified when sales resumed, I was NOT notified.

Jack December 12, 2014 at 5:36 pm

Any indication that this set is going to offered in a Philly version?

joe December 12, 2014 at 9:18 pm

I got lucky ordered 20 12/3 real early and got them today !

On another note what is your opinion on buying the upcoming spouse gold coin for Jaqueline Kennedy? Is it worth the money and would it compliment the gold President Kennedy when trying to sell it later.

If I as a private seller of any product or service jerked my clients aroud as the mint has done with this product I would be out of business .If I advertise I have for sale any number of any given product I manufacture and have given product avaliable for sale and delivery.Promote sell and deliver.This is the way the private sector works.Kinda simple.

All,
I agree that all of the changes the Mint have been implementing has been frustrating, but I believe they are on a learning curve. YES, by now they should have this down to a science. But I do believe that they are trying.

I placed my order for 2 sets two days ago and it was listed as shipped as of yesterday the 12th. I hope all of you get your sets and the majority have not already gone to the internet & TV shows and auctions.

If I may is it out of line to pose a question to our host and editor.possibly you can refresh your guests.What do you think is driving the mints strategy
