The United States Mint has tagged its 2015 March of Dimes Special Silver Set at $61.95, according to a notice that is scheduled to appear Tuesday in the Federal Register, the official source of notices by government agencies and a daily journal of their proceedings.
Discussed here earlier this month, this set in one of three products that will celebrate the 75th anniversary of the March of Dimes Foundation. The other two products are individually sold March of Dimes Silver Dollars, one in a proof finish and another in an uncirculated finish. The special 90% silver set will carry one of the silver dollars, the proof version struck at the West Point Mint, plus a silver proof Roosevelt dime from the West Point Mint and a silver reverse proof Roosevelt dime from the Philadelphia Mint.
Both dimes mark a first for the Mint — the first proof dime from West Point and the first reverse proof dime.
