by Darrin Lee Unser on July 24, 2019 · 27 comments

Featuring a limited mintage, a strict initial household order limit, a note with a unique serial number, and a coin with a special finish, the 2019 Native American $1 Coin & Currency Set is now available.

The set holds an uncirculated $1 note produced by the Bureau of Engraving and Printing and an enhanced uncirculated 2019 Native American $1 Coin struck at the U.S. Mint facility in Philadelphia. Both dollars are packaged together in a tri-fold presentation folder.

The United States Mint-struck coin, a 2019-P Native American $1 Coin with a special enhanced uncirculated finish, is available only within the set. Produced by the Bureau of Engraving and Printing (BEP), the set’s included Series 2017 $1 Federal Reserve note bears a ‘1959’ beginning serial number which correspond to the launch year of the Agena spacecraft that is depicted on the companion coin.

Native American $1 Coins showcase annually changing reverses. This year’s design is spaced-themed, depicting engineer Mary Golda Ross working on aerospace calculations with an Atlas-Agena rocket in the background and an astronaut spacewalking above.

"American Indians have been on the modern frontier of space flight since its infancy. American Indian contributions to the U.S. Space Program culminated in the three spacewalks of John Herrington (Chickasaw) on the International Space Station in 2002," the U.S. Mint describes. "These and other pioneering achievements date back to the work of Mary Golda Ross (Cherokee), one of the first female American Indian engineers. She helped develop the Agena spacecraft for the Gemini and Apollo Programs."

The Native American $1 Coin and Currency Set had been absent from the BEP and U.S. Mint product lineups since 2017 following releases in 2014, 2015 and 2016.

Price and Limits

The U.S. Mint sells Native American dollars in other products but those are in different finishes and they are available in higher quantities. As an example, the 2019 Native American $1 Coin was first introduced in February with circulating-quality editions in unlimited mintages at prices ranging from $32.95 to $275.95.

2019 Native American $1 Coins

On Feb. 13, the U.S. Mint started selling rolls, bags, and boxes of 2019 Native American $1 Coins in standard, circulating finish. A CoinNews photo of one of those rolls with included coins is shown above. More than 1.5 million of them have sold so far. Today, the U.S. Mint kicked off sales of the 2019 Native American $1 Coin and Currency Set which contains an uncirculated Series 2017 $1 Federal Reserve note and a 2019 Native American Dollar in a special, enhanced uncirculated finish. The set’s maximum limit is capped at just 50,000.

This set with its uncirculated $1 note and enhanced uncirculated coin is limited to 50,000 and priced at $15.95. Orders are further limited to two per household.

Rich D

Mike Meezak will own 20% of the total mintage…

sam tweedy

Mike Mezack is still “KING”!!!!!! Understand!!!!!

Dustyroads

That was fun ordering knowing I’m not paying $1,500.00.
Great looking coins, and neat bills make the sets unique.

Domenic

ooops forgot about it….just ordered mine…still available at 4pm pacific time

Piedmont

I remember the “enhanced uncirculated ” 225th anniversary coin sets. There was such hype to buy them. That is, until people actually got the set and saw for themselves just what they actually looked like.
Fast forward to today, and the US mint still hasn’t posted actual photos of their products. To think the US mint has 3rd party surveys to find out how to improve and promote products, when all they would have to do is to read forums.
I hope we are not disappointed. The US mint must have an endless budget for coin return shipping costs.

Joe Thompson

The US Mint is nothing more than government workers who don’t care !! As of today there are still most of the August release PRODUCT PICTURES NOT POSTED YET !! And look at all their FALL 2019 AND TBD releases still yet to be defined.

MJS

Still available – I’m surprised.

Christopher Williams

I just purchased my set this morning.

James Penne

Mike Mezack may eventually have 20 Percent of entire mintage, but he doesn’t have the TWO (2) that I own and I believe mine are the Proof 70 that he did not get.

Hidalgo

Does anyone know what the first day sales numbers are for this set?

Seth Riesling

I am shocked that this great, beautiful, very affordable & historic set has not sold out yet! The 2-set limit per household was lifted today at Noon Eastern time. I thought the t.v. coin dealers like crooked Mike Mezack of HSN would have bought the rest today.

Richard Margolis

I purchased a set today, no problem

Christopher Williams

+1

Christopher Williams

This set is still available as of Saturday (07/27/2019) at 1PM.

Christopher Williams –

Hello! In your opinion, why do you think this beautiful, low-mintage set hasn’t sold out yet? (The only thing I can think of is that many people are on Summer vacation).

Happy collecting!

Emil

Beauty is as they say “in the eyes of the beholder” so with that my best guess’s are:
A) Collector burnout.
B) This offering was not appealing to a large segment of people.
C) The collector pool is getting very shallow and buyers are responding to demand.

Vacation or not I do not know any collectors/buyers who would miss a new release. I sure made my purchase on release day.

Chuck

Just ordered 5 – Monday July 29… still available.

Glenn Rothe

Many are arriving with Dollar note misaligned in holder.

Bryan

Mine was the same way, about ¼ was crimped outside the plastic holder. Not worth the money sending it back guess I will just order another

James Penne

Mezack is King of the Carnie side shows. I’ve been collecting coins since he was old enough to start. I laugh when he uses a nationally known catalog for pricing, I reference RED BOOK to see what they are worth and see how badly people are being taken. People will never sell for what they paid. I buy the coin, not the background!

Joe Thompson

Received two sets…..and the $1 currency is placed CROOKED UNDERNEATH THE PLASTIC AND GLUED IN ON BOTH SETS !!! Very poor quality control. And they are not worth returning. Offset by at least 1 inch….SLOPPY !!!

gman

Ordered three, of which two have a misaligned note. According to a US Mint CSR, this has become a major problem. Hundreds, if not thousands, have been returned due to sloppy, problematic workmanship. The US Mint really screwed the pooch on this release.
