The United States Mint just released its last product for this year, the 2016 Annual Uncirculated Dollar Coin Set.
This collector set features uncirculated examples of the year’s five $1 coins. Three different U.S. Mint production facilities take part in making them, three of the dollars mark an end to a series, and one of the dollars bears a unique anniversary inscription on its edge.
Coins presented within a durable display folder include:
- 2016-P Richard M. Nixon Presidential Dollar
- 2016-P Gerald R. Ford Presidential Dollar
- 2016-P Ronald Reagan Presidential Dollar
- 2016-D Native American Dollar
- 2016-W 30th Anniversary Uncirculated American Silver Eagle
Three of the coins are issued as part of the U.S. Mint’s Presidential $1 Coin Program (read about recent releases), which was introduced in 2007 and ends this year with dollars honoring the 37th, 38th and 40th Presidents. Obverses (heads sides) feature a president’s portrait while reverses share a common rendition of the Statue of Liberty.
The 2016 Native American dollar is the eighth issue in an annual series which showcases changing reverses that celebrate the important contributions made by Indian tribes and individual Native Americans. This year’s coin commemorates Code Talkers. It depicts two helmets with the inscriptions ‘WWI’ and ‘WWII’, and two feathers that form a ‘V’, symbolizing victory, unity, and the important role code talkers played in both world wars. The coin’s obverse continues to feature the image of Sacagawea.
Produced at the West Point Mint in an ounce of .999 fine silver, the uncirculated American Silver Eagle is different from past years. Instead of the traditional grooved or reeded edge, it has a flat edge with "30th ANNIVERSARY" lettering to commemorate three decades of Silver Eagles releases. The silver dollar is also available by itself for $44.95.
Photos of Last Year’s Set
Last year’s set, with photos of one below, ended last December with sales of 22,691. The U.S. Mint stopped selling it earlier than typical as Congress directed anniversary letting on every collectible American Silver Eagle sold in 2016.
Priced at $49.95, the set is available from this U.S. Mint online page, or by calling 1-800-USA-MINT (872-6468). There are no mintage, product, or household order limits.
