2014 American $1 Coin and Currency Sets are no longer available. The United States Mint this week officially tagged the product’s online page as "sold out."
This set was released late last year, on Nov. 20, for $13.95. It’s a hit with collectors because of its enhanced uncirculated 2014-D Native American $1 Coin. The finish was a first in the series, produced by special wire-brushing and laser-frosting techniques. Because the Mint didn’t market how it was different, most collectors didn’t learn about the unique coin until days after the set’s release, and by that time it was hard to get them.
The sets unofficially sold out at their 50,000 product limit not long after their launch. They went "out of stock" and off sale within five days of release. Sales later reopened in short bursts, with the longest return on Dec. 10 when they came back with a household ordering restriction of 5 after having originally launched launched without ordering limits.
Since Dec. 14, U.S. Mint weekly sales reports have had them maxed at 50,000. They’d been listed for months as "currently unavailable."
2014 American $1 Coin and Currency Sets are now selling in the secondary market for at least triple their issue price. Higher graded examples of the enhanced uncirculated $1 coins are going for much more with MS69’s moving from around $70 to $75.
Last week, we talked about the product details for the 2015 set. It goes on sale Aug. 24 for $14.95. It’ll also include an enhanced uncirculated Native American dollar — this one struck at West Point, plus a $1 bill with a serial number beginning with "911." This year’s set has a product limit of 90,000 and will open with an ordering limit of 5 per household.
