The United States Mint has trimmed prices on eight annually issued collector sets. The sets are varied in makeup, ranging from coins in qualities of proof and uncirculated to coins composed in clad and silver.
What they do have in common are Presidential dollars, and that’s why their prices are lower than last year.
Coins of former presidents have been issued at the rate of four per year since the dollar series kicked off in 2007. The series ends this year with only three presidents left to commemorate — Richard M. Nixon, Gerald Ford and Ronald Reagan. The Mint’s new pricing exactly reflects the reduced number of dollars in each set.
