Like the prior issue honoring Harry S. Truman, buyers grabbed all them in just a few minutes. They launched on Tuesday, Aug. 11, at noon Eastern Time. They were gone within 15 minutes.
"A total of 16,820 sets were sold in approximately 15 minutes," Lateefah Simms, public affairs specialist in the Mint’s Office of Corporate Communications, said in an email. "All accepted orders will be processed and fulfilled on a first-in, first-served basis according to existing United States Mint policies."
The U.S. Mint’s online product page for the set still has a "Remind Me" button. It lets customers sign up for an email message should more become available as a result of cancellations or payment issues.
