U.S. Mint 2022 Proof Set Release

71

One of the most sought after annually issued products from the United States Mint appears today with the noon ET release of the 2022 Proof Set. Found within this set are ten clad proof quality examples of the circulating coinage of the nation, each struck at the U.S. Mint’s facility in San Francisco and bearing its associated "S" mint mark.

Six of the set’s 10 coins feature designs unique to 2022. They include five quarters, which also serve as debut issues from the Mint’s new four-year quarter series celebrating the accomplishments of American women, and a Native American dollar honoring Ely S. Parker.

These annual proof sets are always popular with collectors. Hundreds of thousands are purchased every year. For example, recent sales figures show that over 493,000 of the 2021 Proof Set have sold, and this set contains just seven coins.

Collectors value the sets for each coin’s proof quality. Proof coins offers sharp reliefs and mirror-like backgrounds with frosted, sculpted foregrounds. Each is struck multiple times by polished dies and hand-polished blanks resulting in an increased level of detail.

Back to the 2022 Proof Set, you will find that it includes the following 10 coins:

  • 2022-S Native American (Ely S. Parker) $1 Coin
  • 2022-S Kennedy Half Dollar
  • 2022-S Maya Angelou Quarter
  • 2022-S Dr. Sally Ride Quarter
  • 2022-S Wilma Mankiller Quarter
  • 2022-S Nina Otero-Warren Quarter
  • 2022-S Anna May Wong Quarter
  • 2022-S Roosevelt Dime
  • 2022-S Jefferson Nickel
  • 2022-S Lincoln Cent

The five quarters appear together in their own protective lens. The five remaining coins are held in a second protective lens. Both lenses ship together in an illustrated carton that offers several coin images as well as photographs of the women celebrated by the year’s quarters. A U.S. Mint certificate of authenticity is also included.

The clad 2022 Proof Set is $32, the same price as the still available set for 2021.

Customers may order the new set on release by following the U.S. Mint’s online page dedicated to proof set products, found here.

I wonder if I’ll get my NLB coin. I used to get emails all the x from the mint for any new product. I’ve gotten 0 in a month & only learn about releases here. I guess it’s x to chk my profile.

SENZA

Probably should get on chat or call the Mint if this coin is important to you – better than getting that notice they sold out and your order was canceled because they didn’t update your credit card.

Let me guess what your going to say next, “My credit card is up to date” and I’m sure it is but I have found it pays to update all of your information between every release that is important to you because if I said it once, I said it a million times:

Phil

Actually, was weird experience. Logged in & viewed preferences & everything looked like it should. I updated email by copying what was already there, pasting over it & finished the update. Then, immediately got an email confirming the ‘change’. I’m baffled. But, coin I ordered is listed as processing.

So, who knows?

Rich

Phil, the NLB coins have an expected shipping date of April 27, 2022. Your pre-ordered NLB should be fulfilled on or after that date, and then shipped and charged to your credit card

SENZA

Phil,

Congratulations on your tremendously successful acquisition of First On Thread along with all of it’s honors and accolades let me just say WELCOME TO THE TOP https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Jjhhbr-Begw

If you just ordered NLB Proof or Uncirculated no problems. If ordered NLB Privy Mark and didn’t get confirmation problem.

Daniel

267,609 sets available at launch

Major D

Daniel, I think these numbers are all suspect as they changed frequently. Perhaps the enrollments being in flux are the cause? For instance, I checked last night and saw the same number 267,609, then again at 9:10 this morning when it changed to 81,684, and lastly just before the noon sale it became 136,656.

Rich

At the 2pm ET point, data-available = 96,272

I’m seeing 84,000 still available and the Birthday party rages on https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MjF1bG5LUcs

Would anyone like to pay $32.00 for less than $3.00 in change – there is one born every minute https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jACrmwTsi08

04-06-2022_117.jpg
Major D

same argument applies to every Mint product out there

Antonio

But they’re PROOFS.

Major D

Yes, was just making a point. If you look strictly at face value, we’re all way overpaying on everything from the Mint. Every expert opinion I’ve read says coin collecting is not investing- even those coins with precious metals- because there is a numismatic premium way over the actual metal value that is seldom recouped in a resale. Then again, I do see resales over and above the MInt prices even for clad proofs. Take for instance the 2020 Proof set, which cost $32 from the Mint but now sells for around $100 on eBay without the “W” nickel.

Jeff Legan

Plus you are supposed to count any coins you sell as income for your taxes that year. I do not think you get a tax break even if you sell the coin at a loss, unlike the Wall Street guys and their stock sales. Certainly makes it harder for a coin collector to outperform a stock investor.

SENZA

Collecting can be very painful at tax time and the IRS has very specific rules that are not in the best interests of collector’s – including capital Gains Tax (collectibles sold after 1 year) if you sell at a profit and no deduction for selling at a loss – I’m sure the big boys have loopholes to all that but I’m not privy to that info

I haven’t bought a proof set since 2020, for the W nickel. I bought this one for the S Ely Parker dollar. Same reason I’ll also buy the mint set. I bought the Cherokee dollar some years ago because I liked that it has writing in the Cherokee alphabet. I don’t remember if I bought all three mint marks. As the common saying during the Watergate hearings went, “I don’t recall.”

I bought 3 for my collection. I Like to collect the sets and have them from 1958 to date. Call me an IDIOT, but I like collecting coins. It isn’t the face value of the set that deters me.. What do you think about all the coffee drinkers in a Starbucks drive thru lane, paying $5 plus for a 60 cent cup of coffee and they are there every day, sometimes more than once. Are you in those lines?

three-funny-raccoon-guitar-ride-car-152313067.jpg
Major D

I’m not a coffee drinker and don’t play the lottery, that’s partly how I justify buying coin sets- many picked up at great discounts. Clad proof sets from 1980 to 2007 all can be purchased for below what the Mint originally sold them for. Many non-silver sets from the 60’s and 70’s have recently started reversing this trend, as too have sets from 2008 to today. The same can be said of the Mint’s Uncirculated sets, with the exception of 1996 which included the W dime. Will these below original priced sets ever go up in value or beat inflation?… Read more »

SENZA

I still pick up a Bicentennial set from time to time because as you said, they can often be had at or below original cost all these years later. I have been selling my 5 coin Women’s S quarter sets on Feebay for $42 but I’m sold out now and I don’t know if I could unload the other half of this set if I were to buy it just for the Women’s quarters. I do collect the American Innovations $1 Coins and I’m focused on the soon to be released “Vermont” coin which appears to have the lowest mintage… Read more »

Hi senza,what makes you think the vermont dollar has the lowest ,mintage?

SENZA

Less than 7,000 of each Roll and less than 3,000 of each bag and I don’t see an option for enrollments anymore which could indicate sold out via enrollments which I think would be another first for this series – please correct me if I’m wrong I crave information until then https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-XfmHyG8y-g

They actually are the official COVID mascots. Why, might you ask? They are the covid mascots because they incessantly want to wash their hands and they wear a mask.

The White House mascot met with demise after biting 9 worthless Politicians – they put the poor thing down when in fact they should have given’ her the Medal of Honor and put the Politicians down because they carry more than rabies – Poor Fox we salute you https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RtMGoU9NcMo

JWP,

It’s your money and you spend it how you please. Someone has bid $850,000 for a set of Tiger Woods golf clubs used to win a few championships years ago. Golf clubs! For my money, I’d buy the Proof set, only in silver.

well, don’t forget that there’s those extra metal-content value 5-cent and 1-cent pieces in there (with 16 and 2 cents worth of metal respectively). so that should bump it up a bit.

SENZA

Nickel is still outperforming it appears

Am I seeing this correct? 91,000 available!

about 89k available now. probably not going to be a big rush for these, but who knows, some whale might just buy them all up to try to corner the market.

It might just be my suspicious mind but I think they pissed off a lot of collector’s with the Sally Ride Enrollment Scam

SENZA, did your suspicious mind forget about something for Phil (hint: go to top of thread)?

I’m so confused – you guys usually beat me to it

It’s all lunacy, if you ever have a spare minute read the Sally Ride Bio on Wikipedia regarding her illness – very tragic… And you just can’t make that other stuff up but it’s amazing how many lesbians went to or are from outer space – they even managed to commit the first galactic crime off the Planet Earth – makes me wonder how anything could ever go wrong or how our tax dollars could ever be misused…………………… Some things are better off left in the past…the whole Sally Ride US Mint release was just another fiasco like her life… Read more »

Sally Ride led an amazing life and is deservedly a role model for people everywhere. I don’t understand how you can say her life was a fiasco.
Oh, how many lesbians is it that went to outer space? How many approximately are from outer space? What exactly was the first galactic crime they committed off the planet?
I haven’t been able to find out any information about any of this, on Wiki or elsewhere.
Thanks.

SENZA

The “Fiasco” is in part what the US Mint did with the Sally Ride 3 Roll Set Enrollments aka canceling enrollments the night before release day.

Since you came into the conversation late and didn’t do the homework you probably didn’t know there was another lesbian astronaut who was accused of committing the first off Planet crime which I also consider a Fiasco.

Your entitled to your opinion and it’s been noted – I stated my opinion and I’m sticking to it https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5hqG-29NTSU

The only one charged with a crime, was her earth-based estranged wife, for lying about Anne McClain committing a “space crime”. Stop spreading lies … cause it makes you look like a liar.

Facts are Facts and I’ll state my opinion any time I want and twice if you don’t like it. Why don’t you and Morgan get a room and share your misery – you two seem like a very good pair of cry-babies. Both scenarios were not only a Fiasco but a disgrace to MANKIND and America that’s why this whole FIASCO was buried until some moron at the US Mint thought they could make a buck off it.. I don’t revisit these old threads so any garbage you spew from your mouth at this point-on will be between you and… Read more »

you are entitled to any opinion you want to have, but if you make statements that are inaccurate or incorrect, you should expect to be questioned about them. all i asked you for was information to support your claims, which so far you have refused to provide. what you have responded with is personal attacks on me, the least convincing of fallacious arguments. accusing me of being a cry-baby has nothing to do with the accuracy or inaccuracy of what i said or what you said. it’s completely irrelevant. telling me to kiss your ass also is irrelevant. not only… Read more »

You said the us mint fiasco was “just another fiasco like her life.” That can only be read as you consider her life to have been a fiasco. You still haven’t explained why you consider her life to have been a fiasco. Please do. I didn’t know there was another lesbian astronaut and I didn;t know she was “accused of committing the first off Planet crime.” That’s why I asked. You still haven’t said who she was or what crime she committed. Please do. I also didn’t know there were lesbians on the planet from outer space until you mentioned… Read more »

I gave you my answer quit going to old threads and writing crap that nobody reads – if you don’t like it get a room with Daniel and share your misery. I’ll say anything I want – it’s funny how little twits who can’t even spell “lesbian” think they are experts on the subject and want to tell others what they can and can’t say. This whole matter was a disgusting abuse of tax payer money and it was covered up for a reason and now the coin roll out brought it all back out and turned out to be… Read more »

Senza, I read morgan’s comment that is right above yours. I do not see anything wrong in morgan’s comment. All I see in it is that morgan asked you for more info about your comments and all you did was start throwing insults. Like claiming morgan cannot spell “lesbian”. I did not know what you meant at first, because I saw multiple instances of “lesbian” in her comment and did not notice until I re-read it that morgan forgot a letter in one of them near the end of the post. That is the basis of your anger? Last long… Read more »
