Just in time for holiday gift-giving, today the United States Mint unveils one of its most sought-after annual offerings. The new product includes a set of 20 uncirculated coins made for collectors and is priced at $29.

One of the U.S. Mint’s product images for their 2023 Uncirculated Coin Set. These “Mint Sets” are released annually. This year’s set has a reduced product limit.

Known by most as Mint Sets, each year’s release contains coins struck at the two U.S. Mint facilities responsible for supplying the nation’s circulating coinage. However, unlike the bulk-produced coins made for circulation, those found in these sets are produced with an uncirculated collector-grade finish.

The uncirculated 2023 Mint Set includes a total of twenty coins, housed in two-card packaging. Ten of the coins originate from the Philadelphia Mint and are presented together on a blue card, while the remaining ten are from the Denver Mint and are displayed on a red card. The 20 uncirculated coins are as follows:

  • 2023 P & D Native American $1 Coin featuring Maria Tallchief
  • 2023 P & D Kennedy half dollar
  • 2023 P & D Bessie Coleman Quarter
  • 2023 P & D Edith Kanakaʻole Quarter
  • 2023 P & D Eleanor Roosevelt Quarter
  • 2023 P & D Jovita Idar Quarter
  • 2023 P & D Maria Tallchief Quarter
  • 2023 P & D Roosevelt dime
  • 2023 P & D Jefferson nickel
  • 2023 P & D Lincoln cent

Among these coins, more than half feature unique designs for the current year, meaning they have not been featured on coins in previous years and are unlikely to appear on future coins. This includes the 2023 Maria Tallchief Native American $1 Coin, as well as the five 2023 American Women quarter dollars.

Reduced Mintage Limit Increases Probability of Selling Out

The uncirculated 2023 Mint Set has a significantly lower product limit, with the U.S. Mint setting it at just 185,000 units, which is expected to lead to a quicker sell-out. In contrast, last year’s version of the set was release in July 2022 with a limit of 250,000 units and had a six-day sales total of 164,710. The set is still available, and its sales as of Dec. 3 had reached 246,159 units. The uncirculated 2021 Mint Set, with no listed limit, is also still available, and its sales have reached 226,743.

U.S. Mint recorded sales of previous sets is shown below:

  • 2017 Mint Set – 286,813
  • 2018 Mint Set – 257,536
  • 2019 Mint Set – 346,117
  • 2020 Mint Set – 211,787
  • 2021 Mint Set – 226,743 (still available)
  • 2022 Mint Set – 246,159 (still available)

Why don’t they say you get $5.82 in change for your $29 ‘investment’, instead of “The new product includes a set of 20 uncirculated coins…’. Another product that I’ll pass on.

Ordered my usual 1 set. received an email at 10:10 indicating it has been shipped (before the sets were released for sale!)

I started decades ago by collecting small cents, nickels, dimes, quarters, dimes, halves, and dollars. I started getting the sets in 1990 as a more convenient way to continue my existing collections. I can understand why people who don’t have that type of collection would pass on Mint sets.

Forget the coins, the cardboard is the real money maker

Oh right. Round thin metal of various elements that aren’t gold or silver in a cheap dollar store packaging. Huge pass. I will admit, the 300+ conversations are gone, but it makes getting through the 1, 2 and 3 comment articles much easier. Gold hit all time high, silver going up, but no idea why as it obviously has nothing to do with current world events, only coin population from the mints influence prices, well according to the few that do still randomly post here. Coming soon, the virtue signaling coin too good to share with 4 other women, must… Read more »

Dazed, I have to say I’m astounded by all the hate levelled at jews at Ivy League universities and most colleges throughout the US. I thought most of the tenured professors at those institutions were Jewish. Maybe they saw the direction our higher education was going and got out of town. No wonder so many college graduates are dumber than a rock (not disparaging the rock). I assume you’re referring to the Tubman coins next year. I’m sure the women of America, or whatever term they’re called these days, will be buying these in mass. As for me, I have… Read more »

From what I saw at the hearings on CSPAN (I think) the Cornell Harvard and MIT presidents were all women. 1 was black. None had the typical last name associated with that demographic. Regarding your thought they left the schools, from what I have heard over the years they all control the media now. But it’s slowly being invaded by women too, that’s why Barbie did well (tapped into nostalgia and generations of girls that played with dolls and the new generation of dudes that think they’re chicks that play with dolls because his 2 mothers know what a growing… Read more »

Yawn….i gave up on the unc sets a few years ago…..literally throwing money away without any special coins

Lee

I agree that unc. sets are not as exciting as other products but I have one set for every year starting in 1954 (birth year) so I still look forward to getting the next one which also ends my Mint purchases for the year.
