2015 LBJ Coin & Chronicles Set Images

The United States Mint this month will release its fourth and last Coin & Chronicle Set of the year, this one featuring Lyndon B. Johnson. This year’s first two sets for Harry S. Truman and Dwight D. Eisenhower had limits of 17,000 and sold out within 15 minutes of their release. The third set for John F. Kennedy with its 50,000 limit took a bit more than two weeks before becoming unavailable.

2015 Lyndon B. Johnson Coin and Chronicles Set

The Lyndon B. Johnson Coin & Chronicles Set includes a 1973 stamp, reverse proof $1, silver medal and informational booklet

The set’s online page is now ready to go. The U.S. Mint published images and a full description of the set in preparation for its launch on Oct. 27, 2015. Major product and release details include:

  • Price of $57.95, the same as the last three sets.
  • Household ordering limit of 2, the same as the last two issues but 3 less than the first one.
  • Product limit of 25,000, up from an initially announced limit of 17,000 sets.
  • One 2015-P Reverse Proof Lyndon B. Johnson Presidential $1 Coin.
  • One Lyndon B. Johnson Presidential Medal struck in one ounce of .999 fine silver.
  • One Lyndon B. Johnson U.S. postage stamp issued in 1973.
  • One informational booklet with images from Johnson’s life and presidency.

The reverse proof $1 is exclusive to the set, and the fourth of its type from the series of Presidential $1 Coins. The U.S. Mint facility in Philadelphia makes the silver medals and reverse proof dollars but only the $1s have the ‘P’ mint mark.

Another stressful 15 minutes hoping the site behaves and your order goes through.

BustyWidow October 9, 2015 at 12:37 pm

I know right? I think the Eisenhower medal is the star of the set.

Did people Collect this set, or just flipped it like other sets

Joe Coincollector October 9, 2015 at 3:01 pm

I am collecting them. I’m collecting the entire series. I noticed that next year the mint is issuing a C&C set for Pres. Reagan only.

Mint miffed October 9, 2015 at 3:07 pm

Well boys, here we go again. Start sitting on the Web Site with your trigger fingers on the button now as we sure don’t want you all to be left out of this fantastic mint product that’s going to be hotter than Cabage Patch dolls for Christmas presents. I’ll think I’ll put my two guaranteed sets up for sale on e-bay today so I can flip them faster than you can say clemcadoodlehopper!

I cannot believe the portraits on all four of these dollars…they must have been done by amateurs, not one of them is a good likeness, especially the last two Kennedy and LBJ.
They would have been much better off using the portraits on the medals!

I wonder if Teddy Roosevelt’s set will end up to be the key set of these Chronicles sets since it has the lowest mintage of them all

Dwight October 9, 2015 at 9:47 pm

There are no reverse proof Theodore Roosevelt $1 coins. However there are plenty of Theodore Roosevelt $1 proof coins among the various 2013 proof coin sets including the 2013 Theodore Roosevelt Coin & Chronicles Set of which 15.145 sets were sold.

Hewhodontknow October 9, 2015 at 9:59 pm

Even though that’s a fact these 2013 sets are going for 170+ on eBay… As high as Truman’s and Dwight ‘s…mmm wonder why?

Dwight October 10, 2015 at 11:17 am

Hewhodontknow October 10, 2015 at 4:25 pm

I wonder why these 2013 sets are going for so much if like previously stated by Dwight, there is no RP coin on these.

Dale Reese October 10, 2015 at 8:43 pm

Teddy Roosevelt’s set has the first 999 silver medal

Hewhodontknow October 10, 2015 at 9:30 pm

Dale, Is it possible that this medal makes this set the key of this collection?

Dwight October 11, 2015 at 10:50 am

There were 15,145 of the 2013 Theodore Roosevelt Coin & Chronicles Sets
sold when their sales concluded in August 2014. That means there are only 15,145 U.S. Mint Theodore Roosevelt one troy ounce pure silver medals.

Hewhodontknow October 11, 2015 at 4:42 pm

So actually its the medal that makes that set so valuable?

Tinto October 12, 2015 at 10:43 am

I am collecting the Prez C&C set in OGP not too long to go before it ends, LBJ and then Reagan next year, unless the Mint somehow finds they need to include those not currently scheduled … like Nixon ….

RonnieBGood October 12, 2015 at 10:45 am

This is a medal and not a coin.
It will not have long term value.

Whistler October 12, 2015 at 6:06 pm

Dear Ronnie: Time will tell but there are medal collectors & old US medal$ can go for big buck$> See last years 1st spouse medal set, the prior good years as well, 15k is not much of mintage & its a precious medal v. the magnesium gas station giveaway looking RP $, really, JFK awful design, LBJ = The OLD MAN from Pawn stars, Rossevelt (F) looked like Edward Hermann playing FDR. I collect them, may go up, may not, but My TR sets are WAY up, so ROnnie ye got some ‘xplanin to do my friend!

RonnieBGood October 12, 2015 at 9:21 pm

Medals have done well when in the past when ssued for a special event such as an award or the funeral of a famous person.

RonnieBGood October 12, 2015 at 9:23 pm

Short term intrest does not always equal long term value. Time will tell.

Whistler October 14, 2015 at 6:54 pm

Agreed…I collect/accumulate the Silver medals for more then a mere flip.investment, but you can get lucky some times…….the ? is can you trust the Mint to not make more @ some later date…..as they do whatever the F THEY want2……
