United States Mint Brings Back its Annual Uncirculated Dollar Coin Set

Sales of the Revived Coin Set will begin September 6

WASHINGTON - The United States Mint Annual Uncirculated Dollar Coin Set will again be available to collectors beginning September 6 at noon Eastern Time (ET).  The set includes uncirculated quality versions of the dollar coins produced by the United States Mint in 2012:

  • Four Presidential $1 Coins struck at the United States Mint at Philadelphia.  The obverses (heads sides) bear the images of Chester Arthur, Grover Cleveland (first and second terms) and Benjamin Harrison, and the reverses (tails sides) bear a striking rendition of the Statue of Liberty.
  • One Native American $1 Coin struck at the United States Mint at Denver.  The obverse features the familiar image of Sacagawea, and the reverse features a Native American and horse in profile with horses running in the background, representing the historical spread of the horse.
  • One American Eagle Silver Dollar Coin struck at the United States Mint at West Point.  The obverse depicts Adolph Weinman's famous "Walking Liberty" image, and the reverse depicts the heraldic eagle with shield, an olive branch in the right talon and arrows in the left.

The set is presented in a folder with a description of each coin.  A Certificate of Authenticity is printed on the back of the folder.  It was last offered in 2008.

The 2012 United States Mint Annual Uncirculated Dollar Coin Set is priced at $54.95.  Orders will be accepted at the bureau's online catalog at http://www.usmint.gov/catalog and at 1-800-USA-MINT (872-6468).  Hearing- and speech-impaired customers with TTY equipment may order by calling 1-800-321-MINT (6468).  An additional charge of $4.95 will be added to all domestic orders for shipping and handling.  There is no household order or production limit.  The numismatic program is operated at no net cost to the taxpayer.

The United States Mint was created by Congress in 1792.  This year marks the bureau's 220th anniversary.  The United States Mint is the Nation's sole manufacturer of legal tender coinage and is responsible for producing circulating coinage for the Nation to conduct its trade and commerce.  The United States Mint also produces proof, uncirculated and commemorative coins; Congressional Gold Medals; and silver, gold and platinum bullion coins.
