The United States Mint this month will release its fourth and last Coin & Chronicle Set of the year, this one featuring Lyndon B. Johnson. This year’s first two sets for Harry S. Truman and Dwight D. Eisenhower had limits of 17,000 and sold out within 15 minutes of their release. The third set for John F. Kennedy with its 50,000 limit took a bit more than two weeks before becoming unavailable.
The set’s online page is now ready to go. The U.S. Mint published images and a full description of the set in preparation for its launch on Oct. 27, 2015. Major product and release details include:
- Price of $57.95, the same as the last three sets.
- Household ordering limit of 2, the same as the last two issues but 3 less than the first one.
- Product limit of 25,000, up from an initially announced limit of 17,000 sets.
- One 2015-P Reverse Proof Lyndon B. Johnson Presidential $1 Coin.
- One Lyndon B. Johnson Presidential Medal struck in one ounce of .999 fine silver.
- One Lyndon B. Johnson U.S. postage stamp issued in 1973.
- One informational booklet with images from Johnson’s life and presidency.
The reverse proof $1 is exclusive to the set, and the fourth of its type from the series of Presidential $1 Coins. The U.S. Mint facility in Philadelphia makes the silver medals and reverse proof dollars but only the $1s have the ‘P’ mint mark.
