The U.S. Mint will kickoff 2019 with its 2019 Birth Set

The United States Mint published this week its product schedule for 2019. There are the regular listings of quarters, half-dollars, dollars, American Eagle coins, and annual sets; and then there are unique products that you don’t see every year like the curved-shaped Apollo 11 commemoratives.

It appears that exact release dates will be published quarterly as products shown beyond March are simply listed with dates of "SPRING 2019," "SUMMER 2019," or "FALL 2019." There are also about two-dozen TBDs for product release dates that are yet to be determined.

Unavailable at this time are product specifics like price points, mintages and descriptions.

Several of the more notable or more anticipated products for the year include:

2019 Presidential Silver Medals

The U.S. Mint’s Presidential silver medal series kicked off this year with the first two releases featuring George Washington and John Adams.

Next year’s 1-ounce .999 fine silver medals will feature portraits of Thomas Jefferson (Jan. 25), James Madison (spring), James Monroe (summer), and John Quincy Adams (fall).

2019 American Innovation $1 Coins

American Innovation dollars will make a full swing for the year with four unique designs — one each for American innovation or innovators representative of Delaware, Georgia, New Jersey, and Pennsylvania.

Their designs and release dates have yet to be revealed but the U.S. Mint’s product schedule does indicate what type of collector finishes will be offered. They’ll include circulating, proof, uncirculated and reverse proof.

2019 America the Beautiful Quarter Dollars

Finally, look toward the five 2019 quarters celebrating Lowell National Historical Park in Massachusetts (Feb. 4), American Memorial Park in Northern Mariana Islands (April 1), War in the Pacific National Historical Park in Guam (June 3), San Antonio Missions National Historical Park in Texas (Aug. 26), and Frank Church River of No Return Wilderness in Idaho (Nov. 4).

As is traditional, sets with the quarters will be offered in proof (Jan. 15), silver proof (Feb. 21), uncirculated (March 26), and circulating (fall).

I really don’t like oversized coins or medals. Once graded they don’t fit correctly in the storage box holders and have to be stored separately. I like my coins organized by category, type etc.

Does anyone know what the 2019 US Mint “Rocketship” coin is? Its scheduled for release Feb 13th I think.

Found nothing except toy rocketships.. Weird.

My guess would be a miniature rocketship holding two commemorative half dollar(D & S) coins.

“Among the three new youth-oriented products for 2019 is a product packaged in the shape of a rocket ship, that will launch in February 2019, one of three new youth-oriented products for 2019. The Mint’s Kara Murphy Haire, who oversees youth-oriented marketing, said that kids love dinosaurs and space, so the space set has a Native American dollar, Kennedy half dollar and an unidentified quarter dollar; a second product is an Explore and Discover set containing a magnifying glass with a cent planchet that kids can remove and handle; and a third kids-oriented, character-based program includes Eli (a fox) and… Read more »

Thank you. I got that now.
Funny how when I emailed the Mint, they had no information to tell me from customer service. Pretty pitiful.

All that I could find is the kid’s collector set with a rocket ship POP holder. I had big delusions of an actual coin shaped like a rocket ship. :beg:

Richard

Does anyone know how long the Mint will sell the silver presidential medals once they are released?
I know it says there is no limit on how many can be made/sold, but is there a time limit once a medal is released or can they drag it out for years?
Just wondering?

Still don’t understand what this “Rocketship” coin? medal is???

J Peter

OK, so I emailed customer service at the Mint and this is the reply I got re: this “Rocketship Coin”. “Thank you for your recent inquiry to the United States Mint. Regrettably, at this time we do not have any updated information regarding the United States Mint 2019 Rocketship. The release date of this coin will be on February 13, 2019, at 12 noon (ET). Please continue to check the website periodically for any other updates. ” I know I keep harping on this thing but does anyone know what this even is? The miserable Mint doesn’t even know!!

Thanks Mike.
Now I get an idea of what this is all about. Funny though,
how the Mint’s own customer service people could not answer the question.

J Peter

Thanks Mike! I appreciate the info.
