2014 American $1 Coin and Currency Set

2014 American $1 Coin and Currency Set

Those who paid $13.95 for the U.S. Mint’s 2014 American $1 Coin and Currency Set could pocket some quick money. The sets are realizing healthy prices in the secondary market, with higher graded examples of its 2014-D Enhanced Uncirculated Native American $1 Coin winning the most.

Sets contain a Series 2013 $1 Federal Reserve note and that $1 coin. They launched with little fanfare on Nov. 20, 2014 but interest in them ramped up quickly when collectors learned they held a unique enhanced uncirculated coin that featured special wire-brushed and laser-frosted details.

A closer view of the 2014-D Enhanced Uncirculated Native American $1 Coin

Not everyone who wanted one could get one. They have been listed in the agency’s storefront as "Out-of-Stock" since Nov. 24, except for a couple of rare instances when ordering options returned for a few hours in early December. Weekly U.S. Mint sales reports have showed their sales maxed at the authorized 50,000 units since Dec. 14, 2014.

In the secondary market, 2014 American $1 Coin and Currency Sets are selling for at least triple their original issue price and as high as $50. Multiple sets with sequential dollar bill serial numbers are going for more, hitting close to $64 per.

Single lots of graded 2014-D Enhanced Uncirculated Native American $1 Coins are varied in winnings, with:

  • 66s-67s getting about $36 to $37,
  • 68s realizing from around $39 to $54, and
  • 69s going anywhere from between $84 to $140.

As produced, a dollar coin’s orientation is random as it’s fed into the Mint’s edge lettering machines. Coins that have their edge lettering right side up with the obverse, dubbed "Position A" by PCGS, tend to sell toward the higher end of the spectrum.

Good luck tracking down 70s. We couldn’t find any that have been sold in recent auctions.

These were tough.i placed and received two separate orders a box of two that I opened and a box of 4 that are still sealed in the OGP.The two I opened are of poor quality and the notes aren’t sequential

And there was a household limit of 5.. in December

Like Dale, I also lucked out in mid December and received 4 sets from the Mint. I am not sure if any of the enclosed Bills are in sequential serial number
issue or what grade the enclosed Native American enhanced coins are in
because I took the “unopened” master carton and placed the whole lot in my
safety deposit box at my bank for future considerations.

“As high as $50.00”. That would be me. I panicked and paid 49.95 for a set on eBay, thinking I was riding the upward wave. Instead I established the fool’s high water mark. I should have left it alone. What are the odds this set will reach $100?

I didn’t luck out. I found a PCGS MS68 $1 and bought it out on impulse for $75.00. A few days ago, I found a set online and paid $44.95. Feels like I over paid for the single one. But, I’m still happy

I also placed two orders. One in Nov.& one in Dec. The one order in Nov had three sets l opened. one set was number 00204 and the other were 00217&00218.the Dec.sets are GOP.

checked eBay sealed boxes of 27 selling for 1500.00 only 23 listings average 44.95 and upwards for this set…only time will tell i do think these will go higher…

I lucked out when the Mint opened up sales briefly before they set the limit to 5 sets. I ordered 99 sets and received them late December. Sold 72 of the sets on Ebay for a total $3,500.00 and still have 27 sets left.

Sell for the profit…not a real popular coin in the long run…billions in the vaults!!

George – You did not take my advice!

george glazener January 26, 2015 at 6:07 pm

@Ronnie; uh oh…! What’d I forget to do? My old brain doesn’t work as well as it used to do. Was it BTFD, or something like that?

My order for 5 was received by the mint on December 11th. It’s still on back order. πŸ™

As most markets if you don’t hit the incoming tide you more than likely totally missed the boat

Joe R. Alvarado January 28, 2015 at 1:04 am

I also have my order as ” back order.” I called the Mint to ask about it & I’m sorry to let some of u know that “back order” does not mean u will get ur order latter. It was put as “back order” in case some orders would be returned & give the ones who ordered late a second “chance” to get a set from the Mint. They told me that they really don’t expect any orders returned.

Victor DeCurtis January 28, 2015 at 9:00 am

Rat bastards! Just when I think I’ve got them figured out, they surprise me, again! Why do they even accept an order, when the max has been hit? Why not just inform us that if one becomes available through a cancellation, a notice will be sent to you to order or not. But, having us dangle with no information, sucks!

Victor DeCurtis February 6, 2015 at 8:53 am

My five sets were sent, two days ago, on a slow boat to China! πŸ™‚ Estimated delivery, February 11, 2015. I’ll let you know how they look. πŸ™‚

My good fortune is sporadic, but I read Jim’s advice on about.com concerning the ’14 C and C Set. I placed my order Dec. 13. Immediately came up B/O, but not out of stock. By the end of Jan. I caved and spent $44. for a set on eBay. How dejected I felt. Ironically, the same week the US Mint processed my order, shipping to follow ! I sent the eBay set back for a refund stating the honest reason. Got mine a week later from the Mint. Don’t give up hope, the Mint works in mysterious ways.
