This week looks to be slower in world mint releases, but the United States Mint will introduce two products. First, on Tuesday, is the Everglades National Park Quarters Three-Coin Set for $9.95. It is the fifth and last of the series for this year.
On Thursday comes the Native American $1 Coin and Currency Set for $13.95. This is an entirely new product, and a joint offering from the U.S. Mint and the Bureau of Engraving and Printing. It holds an uncirculated 2014-D Native American $1 Coin and a 2013 $1 note.
"The set has interesting historical information about the Lewis and Clark Expedition and a sleeve to cover the folder," describes the U.S. Mint in a news release.
We’ll talk about these releases as well as a couple of world mint products. Until then, here are last week’s five most read:

US Mint to Resume Bullion Silver Eagle Sales on Nov. 17 – The United States Mint expects to have over one million 2014 American Silver Eagle bullion coins for sale by Nov. 17, according to a memo the agency sent to its authorized distributors.

2014 50th Anniversary Kennedy 50c Order Limits End Nov. 17 – Effective Monday, Nov. 17, 2014, at 12:01 AM, the United States Mint is lifting household order limits on the 2014 50th Anniversary Kennedy Half-Dollar Silver Coin Collection and the 2014 50th Anniversary Kennedy Half-Dollar Uncirculated Coin Set. Both products should get a bit of a sales boost without the ordering limits with businesses able to get more to market and sell.
2014 Christmas Coin Includes ‘Augmented Reality’ for Smartphones – This year’s Christmas-themed coin from the Perth Mint of Australia celebrates the story of Santa Claus and his reindeer.
