Money of the 2014 American $1 Coin and Currency Set

2014 American $1 Coin and Currency Sets are no longer available. The United States Mint this week officially tagged the product’s online page as "sold out."

This set was released late last year, on Nov. 20, for $13.95. It’s a hit with collectors because of its enhanced uncirculated 2014-D Native American $1 Coin. The finish was a first in the series, produced by special wire-brushing and laser-frosting techniques. Because the Mint didn’t market how it was different, most collectors didn’t learn about the unique coin until days after the set’s release, and by that time it was hard to get them.

The sets unofficially sold out at their 50,000 product limit not long after their launch. They went "out of stock" and off sale within five days of release. Sales later reopened in short bursts, with the longest return on Dec. 10 when they came back with a household ordering restriction of 5 after having originally launched launched without ordering limits.

Since Dec. 14, U.S. Mint weekly sales reports have had them maxed at 50,000. They’d been listed for months as "currently unavailable."

2014 American $1 Coin and Currency Sets are now selling in the secondary market for at least triple their issue price. Higher graded examples of the enhanced uncirculated $1 coins are going for much more with MS69’s moving from around $70 to $75.

Last week, we talked about the product details for the 2015 set. It goes on sale Aug. 24 for $14.95. It’ll also include an enhanced uncirculated Native American dollar — this one struck at West Point, plus a $1 bill with a serial number beginning with "911." This year’s set has a product limit of 90,000 and will open with an ordering limit of 5 per household.

This article was edited to correct the release date of the 2015 set from Aug. 25 to Aug. 24.

Feel lucky to have gotten a ’14 set during a short window, learned about the issue through this website–thanks to those who run it. Will assuredly go for a ’15 too. But does anybody know about the “special surface” to the dollar on the 2000 (Millennium) C&C set? I’ve heard that it wasn’t applied to all of them and in any case looks quite different from the current treatment. Sets go for around $100 and while they have an ASE wonder if the dollars are really different enough to be worth it.

@Richard –

This from a 2012 CoinUpdate article on the Millennium set:
“The coins and note included in the Millennium Coinage and Currency Set each had a special aspect, some of which were not mentioned by the United States Mint. The $1 Federal Reserve Note had a serial number beginning with the digits “2000” to recognize the new millennium. The 2000 Silver Eagle was specifically identified as produced at the West Point Mint, although it did not contain a mint mark. For this year, production had taken place at both the Philadelphia and West Point Mints and until now the identification of certain coins to a specific mint had not been possible. Finally, the 2000-D Sacagawea Dollar had a burnished finish, similar to the special finish used for the 5,000 coins that had been paid to Glenna Goodacre as her design fee.”

These set go for around $100. Red Book does not separately identify (at least through 2013) these particular coins, but does list the set in the Commemoratives section under the heading of ‘Government Commemorative Sets’. As long as it’s in OGP or submitted for grading with OGP, these may become a worthwhile set to have.

75,000 were produced and sold out – priced at $39

When I saw Truman’s reverse proof, he looks like…Malcom X!
