In preparing for the Oct. 11 launch of the 2016 Ronald Reagan Coin & Chronicles Set, the United States Mint updated its online product page.

Images of the set’s contents and packaging were unveiled, and extended details about the set are now available — beyond the summary information we wrote about earlier in the month.

Increased Ordering Limit

A change since that earlier article includes an increased household ordering limit, raising it to five sets from one set. The 150,000 set maximum remains, as does the originally published price of $68.95.

Update: Later in the afternoon on Sept. 30, the U.S. Mint adjusted the ordering limit to 3 sets per household.

Product Images and Information

Below are more U.S. Mint images of the set’s contents, plus their descriptions.

In looking at the Mint images above:

  • The 1 ½-inch bronze medal is a replica of the Congressional Gold Medal honoring President Ronald Reagan and Nancy Reagan for their distinguished records of public service on behalf of the American people and international community.

  • The 2016-S Reverse Proof Ronald Reagan Presidential $1 Coin is minted at the U.S. Mint at San Francisco.

  • The 2016-W 30th Anniversary Proof American Silver Eagle is minted at the U.S. Mint at West Point.

We also added our own photos of a proof Silver Eagle. In addition to its inclusion in the set, the 30th anniversary coin is sold individually at catalog.usmint.gov for $53.95.

The set includes an engraved Ronald Reagan Presidential portrait that is produced from the Bureau of Engraving and Printing. The two coins, bronze medal, and engraving are displayed in a rich blue folder covered in soft-touch material with a handsome textured look and accompanied by a Certificate of Authenticity. Here are two U.S. Mint images of the set’s folder:

I wish the mint would have made the proof silver eagle “enhanced” or somehow different from the previous released 2016 silver eagle proof. Another missed opportunity for a unique set.


I agree though it does have the edge lettering that is very difficult to see given how it is packaged. In my opinion something like that should have been used for the entire 30th anniversary issue (personally I wouldn’t buy anything having to do with Reagan but that’s a different issue).

According to this Post the Reagan Reverse Proof will have the S Mint Mark, unlike The Truman, Eisenhower, Kennedy and Johnson…..which carry the P. Wonder why the change ?

Stuart Wheeler

Other than the fact that Mr. Reagan was from California and the reverse proof being struck in California, it shouldn’t make any difference where it was struck. If the U.S. Mint chose Denver to strike the coin, so what. The Mint will do what it wants regardless of how collectors feel. What they should’ve done to cap the series off was to include a Reagan Stamp (if any) or, a series 1976 $2 FRN since the next one is dated 1995, after Mr. Reagan’s presidency. My thoughts only.

Hi Mike, and thank you for the above info.

I just went to the US Mint site and it reads the “Household Limit 3.”

Christopher – Thanks, the U.S. Mint made the adjustment this afternoon from 5 to 3 sets.


They really could have put themselves out a little bit more for this set. S mint mark on a clad golden dollar. Whoopie!!

Where in heck did the Mint come up with the ridiculously high mintage of 150,000 sets?! The JFK C&C set was 50,000 sets & took awhile to sell out. Was Reagan three times more popular than JFK?! Lol
A nice set for sure, but will be available well into next year I suspect.


Christopher Williams

You’re welcome, Mike, and thank you.

With 150,000 sets being available, at least I won’t have to worry about getting through on my laptop from my work parking lot.

I’m sure they’ll be plenty when I get home from work.


Was really looking forward to this set (one of my favorite presidents), but doesn’t include anything special so I will be passing on this. Why did they not choose to make a 1oz silver medal like they did for the rest of the coin and chronicle set?

Christopher Williams

The US Mint’s decision-making is baffling.

Seth Riesling

Christopher Williams –

So true. And at least everyone will have the chance to get up to 3 sets if needed for a collection or a gift. I love these C&C sets, but this one will be the most common one obviously since the first one in 2005 for Chief Justice John Marshall.

Happy collecting!
