Collectors can soon order as many 2015 American $1 Coin and Currency Sets as they want while supplies last. The United States Mint on Tuesday is lifting the household ordering limits for the set online and at their sales centers in Washington, Philadelphia and Denver.
When released on Aug. 24 for $14.95, orders were restricted to 5 per household. Early demand was strong with 44,344 of the possible 90,000 scooped up in the first day. Nearly 70% were gone within two weeks. Since then, weekly gains have ranged from 168 to 2,443. The last round of sales figures had them up 326 to 73,378 for about 82% of the maximum.
The set includes an exclusive 2015-W Native American $1 Coin from the West Point Mint and a $1 Series 2013 note from the Federal Reserve Bank of New York. The $1 coin has an enhanced uncirculated finish that is created by dies that had their details wire-brushed for brilliance and laser-frosted for contrast. (We wrote about the coin’s finish here.) The $1 note has a beginning serial number of "911" in honor of the Mohawk Ironworkers’ recovery efforts after the collapse of the World Trade Center twin towers in 2001.
The two collectibles are presented in tri-fold folder containing historical information about the Mohawk Ironworkers, product specifications and a U.S. Mint Certificate of Authenticity. (See photos of the set.)

I noticed on the US Mint website this morning that the 2015 American $1 Coin & Currency Set is now unavailable.
