The United States Mint scheduled Nov. 14 as the release date for their reverse proof set of dollars celebrating innovation from the states of Rhode Island, Vermont, Kentucky and Tennessee. Subscriptions are open already. Subscribers automatically receive new sets when they are released, and they are not charged for shipping.
Reverse proof coins have mirror-like designs and frosted backgrounds — opposite of the traditional proof finish. The U.S. Mint released their set of regular proof 2022 dollars on June 7. Priced at $24 without a mintage limit, it has sales of 65,667 through Oct. 2.
The upcoming set has a mintage of 50,000, like last year’s set which eventually sold out at pricing of $28. Last year’s set was the first where the U.S. Mint offered all the year’s reverse proof Innovation dollars in one protective lens as a single product. Previous reverse proof dollars sold individually.
The price of this year’s set is yet to be announced.
For ordering and subscription information, visit the Mint’s store for American Innovation products.
When you get to be my age you begin to wonder what the point is of trying to collect a Coin Series like this whose duration extends over a period of fourteen years.
I’m still going to try to collection all the Morgan and Peace Dollars I can. Something to burden those left behind. 🙂
Shut up. You are so feisty you will probably outlive recorded history as we now know it. Anyway, the only way all of us will know that you are gone is if we don’t hear from you anymore. So please don’t keep me waiting for your next obnoxious comment. And that is something that I, personally, don’t want to see happen.
So just keep bitchin. — Mike
You are too kind, Mike. That sort of from the heart cheerleading certainly doesn’t get in the way of me giving myself a leg up doing my best to live in the moment.
according to the “data-available” method there are less than 10,000 sets available now.
The question is, does that mean overall or just by subscription.
After the way the numbers changed dramatically on the ‘next year’ dollars, I am beginning to wonder if the number available for subscription is something like total available less 25%. That way, on the day of release the mint has something they can actually sell.
I’ve been given to understand that the “data-available” amount is in fact the number still to be had overall. This, it seems, is why many items exhausted their entire inventory this year by subscription alone.
I don’t know of any specific quantities of a product being held in reserve that are not subject to subscription, nor does the Mint appear to offer any guarantee of availability on official coin release days.
And likewise, Mike, we all enjoy and appreciate hearing from you. So keep those comments rolling. – Rich
I would just like tw0 2023, silver eagles, a limited proof set of all proff coins. And a Peace/Morgan 2 coin set in unceirculated condition. But you have made almost impossible by changing you system for ordering. Us small guys do not have a chance. The big guys have all the equipment to order quickly. We small guys are forced to buy from the big dealers at inflated prices. You could help us by using a more avaliable system for all and your long time customers. I am just a one man show I want to leave something significant to… Read more »
Unfortunately, Douglas, the US Mint is part of the US Government, and if there’s one thing both organizations know how to do it is to take much and give back little.
Sorry, Douglas, about my prior knee-jerk response to your very valid point. A better answer is that it may often seem that even on the best of days it is not at all unusual for the US Mint to find one way or another to either purposely or incidentally discover some way to favor its big buyers over the little guy.
At the moment it is still possible to subscribe to the Morgan / Peace dollars in proof or uncirculated. I can’t speak for other issues since I am not interested, though a quick look indicates the 2023 unc silver eagle is available. go to the mint website and under shop/coins you can subscribe. You do not have to order those items quickly at the moment they are released. There is no excuse if you really want up to 3 Morgan/Peace dollars. The mint actually changed the system for ordering those coins and in my opinion made it tons easier to… Read more »
You certainly hit the bullseye with your clear and concise yet complete answer, Tom; thanks on behalf of everyone here for that most valuable “tutorial”.
The only codicil I would insert is regarding the negative result of the occasions the Mint waives responsibility by assigning a far too high Household Order Limit to any particular item, in which case the great majority of the available inventory once again ends up in the hands of major dealers, large buying clubs and big flippers.
If I understand things correctly, the other plus of the enrollments, if that is all you get, is no shipping charge, unlike the “order 3 items during the year” and after that the shipping is free. Since you are limited to 3 of the Morgan dollars, that household limit seems to work, as there are still plenty available, but seem to be going fast. For those of us who jumped on the 3 roll set of women’s quarters, that was limited to 1 per household under the enrollment method, so I do think the limit does help. Those lasted a… Read more »
You certainly do understand it correctly, Tom, and that is one of the good things about enrollments, or subscriptions as they more commonly seem to be called now by the Mint. It’s great to have shipments sent for free, and not having to accrue three of those before the gratis shipping kicks in is a bonus. Additionally, those initial orders shipped for free also happen to fulfill the standard requirement for getting no charge shipping on all the rest of that year’s orders. This is without a doubt a heck of a win win situation! I see that you noticed… Read more »
