Sales of the 2013 United States Mint Uncirculated Coin Set, or 2013 Mint Set, ended this week with its product page now tagged with "sold out."
U.S. Mint reporting last had its sales at 368,553, which is the lowest total since the 1961 Mint Set ended with sales of 223,704. This should lift the set’s value in the secondary market. That happened with the 2012 Mint Set when it ended at 392,224, the weakest level since 1962. Sets from 2012 are now selling for around $70, or more than double their original issue price.
Coin News Update: The 2013 Mint Set is listed as available once again.
