Earlier today, Aug. 7, the United States Mint moved its 2015 March of Dimes Special Silver Set into the "sold out" column.
Released on May 4, for $61.95, the set of three silver coins effectively sold out in just over a week when the Mint on May 12 listed them as unavailable. A "Remind Me" option kept the door slightly open for the possibility of more sales. That door was closed today.
Since May 12, their weekly sales have bumped around only slightly. That last batch of Mint figures had them down 9 to 74,623.
2015 March of Dimes Special Silver Sets include:
- One proof 2015 March of Dimes Proof Silver Dollar from West Point,
- One reserve proof 2015 Roosevelt Silver Dime from Philadelphia, and
- One proof 2015 Roosevelt Silver Dime from West Point
Until this year, the U.S. Mint had never produced a reverse proof silver dime, or a proof silver dime from West Point. Both are exclusive to the special set. A reverse proof finish has the opposite appearance of standard proofs, with mirror-like designs and frosted backgrounds. Regular proofs appear each year within annual sets, like those struck by the San Francisco Mint for 2015 Silver Proof Sets.
2015-W Proof March of Dimes Silver Dollars remain available, as do 2015-P Uncirculated March of Dimes Silver Dollars. Celebrating the 75th anniversary of the founding of the March of Dimes, the commemorative coins are sold through the Mint’s website right here. The proof is $51.95 and has sales of 49,595. The uncirculated silver dollar is $48.95 and has sales of 22,345.
