Released last Monday, May 4, sales of the three-coin March of Dimes Special Silver Sets climbed another 2,941 to reach a one-week total of 69,050. That’s 92.1% of the 75,000 authorized maximum.
With 5,950 left and based on their sales trend, it seems likely that they’ll reach an unofficial sell out within days. Totals and gains by day break down as:
- 5/5 – 52,540
- 5/6 – 58,129 (+5,589)
- 5/7 – 63,882 (+5,753)
- 5/8 – 66,109 (+2,227)
- 5/11 – 69,050 (+2,941)
Each set includes a 2015-W Proof March of Dimes Silver Dollar from the West Point Mint, a 2015-W Proof Roosevelt dime also from the West Point Mint, and a 2015-P Reverse Proof Roosevelt dime from the Philadelphia Mint. (See photos of the coins.) All three are composed from 90% silver and 10% copper. The two dimes are a first for the Mint, and will only be sold within the set. Due to their 75,000 limit, they automatically have the lowest mintage in the Roosevelt dime series.
Sets are $61.95 each, and there is a 5-set household ordering limit. Place orders online here, or call 1-800-USA-MINT (872-6468).
