This final Coin and Chronicles Set for 2015 proved very popular. It launched on Tuesday and sold out in just 4 hours. Sets are already shipping with some buyers receiving theirs in less than a day.

The U.S. Mint’s online page for the set now has a "Remind Me" button instead of one to order. It lets customers sign up for an email message should more become available because of cancellations or payment issues.

Here are some more photos of the set’s contents. Enlarge an image by clicking on it.

Here are photos of the 2015-P Reverse Proof Lyndon B. Johnson Presidential $1 Coin (obverse or heads side and reverse or tails side). The reverse proof Presidential $1 is the fourth one issued by the U.S. Mint, with the first one in the 2015 Harry S. Truman Coin and Chronicles Set, the second one in the 2015 Dwight D. Eisenhower Coin and Chronicles Set, and the third one in the 2015 John F. Kennedy Coin and Chronicles Set. Opposite of standard proofs, reverse proof coins have frosty fields and raised mirror-like devices.

Much better image of Johnson on the medal than the dollar!

Once this is done and over with no more reverse proofs for a time. Overkill.

Mine has shipped already!! Love the design, they really caught his spirit, the Old Man from Pawn Stars RP & that Chumlee medal, yeeeha!!

Joe October 29, 2015 at 3:47 pm

The Pawn Stars did a better job. lol

I can see the spots in the reverse of the RP above Liberty’s crown … hope the ones I get (already shipped Smartpost) will be spotless ….

Whistler,
When I first saw the Rev. PF coin that is what I saw… “The Old Man” himself!!! lol
My set has shipped also. Hope it looks good.

When I look at this coin I do not see Lyndon Johnson. I see Arthur Godfrey, for those of you that don’t know, he was an entertainer from the 1950’s and 1960’s.
You would think that with all of the steps of approval needed to design a coin we would have a more accurate image of Lyndon Johnson! There are only a few coins left in the series, I hope we don’t have any more Presidents that don’t look like themselves.

Chuck – I agree.
Both the Kennedy and the Johnson likenesses on the dollar coins are a disappointment.

Has anyone noticed?

The description in the folder next to the silver medal states that the medal’s reverse has the date of LBJ’s inauguration as January 20, 1965. However, when you look at the medal itself, the date is November 22, 1963, which is the date that he took office immediately after Kennedy’s assassination.

The medal in the set is the one that commemorates LBJ’s 1st term when he was first sworn in as president. The description in the folder obviously refers to the medal that commemorates his 2nd term after he was elected in 1964. (Or maybe the writer was misinformed and the proofreader didn’t catch it.)

For a look at both medals, click on the following link and scroll down to the section of the United States Mint Presidential Series:
