The first week of September starts off with two collector coin sets from the United States Mint. The first numismatic product showcases Hawai’i Volcanoes National Park Quarters in its own Three-Coin Set, and the other features all of the U.S. Mint’s $1 coins in the six-coin 2012 Annual Uncirculated Dollar Coin Set.
Following the Labor Day holiday, on Tuesday, September 4, Hawai’i Volcanoes Quarters Three-Coin Set will hit the market for $9.95. One quarter in the set is proof quality from the U.S. Mint facility in San Francisco, while the other two quarters are uncirculated quality from the Philadelphia and Denver facilities. Demand will initially be high for the set, if past issues are an indication.
Orders will be accepted for the Hawai’i Volcanoes Quarters Three-Coin Set on this U.S. Mint page.
On Thursday, September 6, the 2012 Annual Uncirculated Dollar Coin Set will go on sale. Its price is yet to be announced. Six uncirculated versions of this year’s dollar denominated coins will be together in one presentation folder with brief descriptions for each. The coins include:
- Four Philadelphia produced 2012-P Presidential $1 Coins — honoring Chester Arthur, Grover Cleveland (first term), Benjamin Harrison and Grover Cleveland (second term)
- One Denver minted 2012-D Native American $1 Coin
- One West Point struck 2012-W Uncirculated American Silver Eagle
Upon its launch, the U.S. Mint will be offering the Annual Uncirculated Dollar Coin Set through this U.S. Mint product page.
As usual, sales will commence at 12:00 noon ET on their respective issue dates. An alternative to ordering online is calling the U.S. Mint’s toll free number, 1-800-USA-MINT (872-6468).
