225th Anniversary Enhanced Uncirculated Coin Set

The United States Mint will charge $29.95 for its special set of 10 enhanced uncirculated coins. News of the price came Friday morning in the form of an updated product page. The set goes on sale Aug. 1 at noon ET.

Celebrating the Mint’s 225th anniversary, it contains the same base metal coins as those within the 2017 Proof Set. That set is $3 less at $26.95. It was released on March 29 and has sales of 312,796 through July 16.

Proof coins have frosted designs and mirror-like backgrounds. The enhanced uncirculated coins of the anniversary set are distinctly different than proofs, the Mint describes, as they are created "using a combination of laser frosted areas and an unpolished field that accentuates design details." Each is made at the San Francisco and bears a ‘S’ mint mark.

The unique set will launch on the first of the month without household order limits. Its mintage is capped at 225,000, paying tribute of a sort to the Mint’s 225th anniversary.

For more information, visit the set’s product page.

that’s very true, buying a brand new car with a 600 dollar monthly payment, what a huge mistake, just because some people think they deserve it

Barry says,
“It amazes me how people live hand to mouth and have money for a Amazon prime membership, a I-phone and cable tv. That in itself could be part of the reason people live paycheck to paycheck.”

Barry, you just perfectly described the lower class Americans. What money they do have they spend it on things that have 0 return.
Middle class on the other hand hoard what money they have and focus on becoming debt free. That hoarding is quite possibly the reason for the low inflation rate we have.
And finally, the ultra rich are busy borrowing money and investing. They are truly the only ones who are turning the wheels of our economy.

Rodney Moore – Label should read *SECOND BATCH* FIRST RELEASE or EARLY RELEASE *& so on. Their is no reason why they could not do that. First batch owners that had them graded, would be worth more money. Also I read the mint statement, your right it’s in stone, U*S MINT STATEMENT” I’m sure all grading company’s saw that statement, OH*OH* something is not right, are grading company’s saying the *U*S* MINT, is not telling the truth. SOME *1* should explain, & get to the bottom of this matter. That’s a lot million’s of $$$$$$$$$$$$$$. ? what year did it start first strike & so many more, i have a ngc red 2006 label that got out law’ed. & they started before that, i”m to la”z to look. I hope nobody is getting *kick*back’s* carzy. POOF*
