Like the prior issue honoring Harry S. Truman, buyers grabbed all them in just a few minutes. They launched on Tuesday, Aug. 11, at noon Eastern Time. They were gone within 15 minutes.
"A total of 16,820 sets were sold in approximately 15 minutes," Lateefah Simms, public affairs specialist in the Mint’s Office of Corporate Communications, said in an email. "All accepted orders will be processed and fulfilled on a first-in, first-served basis according to existing United States Mint policies."
The U.S. Mint’s online product page for the set still has a "Remind Me" button. It lets customers sign up for an email message should more become available as a result of cancellations or payment issues.
Here are some photos of the set’s product contents — its coin, medal and stamp. Each image may be enlarged with a click.
Here are photos of the 2015-P Reverse Proof Dwight D. Eisenhower Presidential $1 Coin (obverse or heads side and reverse or tails side). The reverse proof Presidential $1 is only the second one issued by the U.S. Mint, with the first one in the 2015 Harry S. Truman Coin and Chronicles Set. Opposite of standard proofs, reverse proof coins have frosty fields and raised mirror-like devices.
Here are two photos of both sides of the one-ounce, .999 fine Dwight D. Eisenhower Presidential Silver Medal. The medal is a duplicate of the inaugural Eisenhower bronze medal from 1953.
