This limited-edition set goes on sale Oct. 1 for $39.95. Restricted to 25,000 sets with a household order limit of one, the product couples one 2018-S 50c Proof Breast Cancer Awareness coin from the U.S. Mint with one Breast Cancer Research Forever® stamp from the U.S. Postal Service.

The proof 50-cent piece is one of six Breast Cancer Awareness commemorative products currently offered by the U.S. Mint. It is available individually for $32.95 and had sales of 16,615 up to Sept. 16. That price includes a $5 surcharge for the Breast Cancer Research Foundation.

The stamp sells for a surcharge above the current cost of first-class postage. Surcharges collected for it are split with 70% paid to the National Institutes of Health and 30% to the Medial Research Program at the Department of Defense to support breast cancer research. To date, according to the USPS, the stamp has raised more than $86 million for breast cancer research. Designed by Ethel Kessler, the stamp features an illustration of a mythical "goddess of the hunt" by Whitney Sherman and includes the phrases "FUND THE FIGHT" and "FIND A CURE."

Other upcoming U.S. Mint products are regular releases from annual series. Here’s a grid showing all of the Mint’s products scheduled for release from October to November 2018:
