Those who paid $13.95 for the U.S. Mint’s 2014 American $1 Coin and Currency Set could pocket some quick money. The sets are realizing healthy prices in the secondary market, with higher graded examples of its 2014-D Enhanced Uncirculated Native American $1 Coin winning the most.
Sets contain a Series 2013 $1 Federal Reserve note and that $1 coin. They launched with little fanfare on Nov. 20, 2014 but interest in them ramped up quickly when collectors learned they held a unique enhanced uncirculated coin that featured special wire-brushed and laser-frosted details.
Not everyone who wanted one could get one. They have been listed in the agency’s storefront as "Out-of-Stock" since Nov. 24, except for a couple of rare instances when ordering options returned for a few hours in early December. Weekly U.S. Mint sales reports have showed their sales maxed at the authorized 50,000 units since Dec. 14, 2014.
In the secondary market, 2014 American $1 Coin and Currency Sets are selling for at least triple their original issue price and as high as $50. Multiple sets with sequential dollar bill serial numbers are going for more, hitting close to $64 per.
Single lots of graded 2014-D Enhanced Uncirculated Native American $1 Coins are varied in winnings, with:
- 66s-67s getting about $36 to $37,
- 68s realizing from around $39 to $54, and
- 69s going anywhere from between $84 to $140.
As produced, a dollar coin’s orientation is random as it’s fed into the Mint’s edge lettering machines. Coins that have their edge lettering right side up with the obverse, dubbed "Position A" by PCGS, tend to sell toward the higher end of the spectrum.
Good luck tracking down 70s. We couldn’t find any that have been sold in recent auctions.
