We’re in a shortened week of coin news with Christmas right around the corner. Most world mints are taking a break from product launches. Not the United States Mint.

And on that note, last week’s two most read articles were about their upcoming products. Topmost was about the 2014 Franklin D. Roosevelt Coin and Chronicles Set and its two coins, two medals and four stamp. That could be a good sign for the Mint as the set goes on sale Monday.

Most of our articles this week will be about U.S. coins. We expect to publish some wrap-up pieces on coin legislation, talk more about product sales and write about some coins for 2015. Until then, here are last week’s five most read:

  1. 2014 FDR Coin and Chronicles Sets Include Coins, Medals and Stamps – Coin and stamp collectors can get a closer look now at the 2014 Franklin D.
