With so many ways for Americans to accomplish something, demand for a "congratulations" gift is high.

US Mint 2015 Congratulations Set

[Shown: US Mint’s 2015 Congratulations Set]

And, to fill that need, the United States Mint began offering their 2015 Congratulations Set on Monday, January 26 for $50.95.

In the set is a single but precious collectible: the ever popular, one ounce 2015-W Proof American Eagle Silver Coin. For the set, the U.S. Mint encapsulated it for protection and then mounted it in a decorative folder for presentation, which allows viewing of both sides of the .999 fine silver coin.

The inside design of the folder includes a blank section for a personalized message from the gift-giver to the recipient. On the front are the words, "Congratulations!" "2015 United States Mint Congratulations Set," and "American Eagle One Ounce Silver Proof Coin."

A Certificate of Authenticity and coin specifications are shown on the backside of the folder. Throughout the front, inside and backside are images of festive gold, silver, and black ribbons.

Congratulations Sets featuring proof Silver Eagles debuted in 2013. Due to its specific audience, sales of the sets in the first two years remained under 20,000 respectively, which is a drop in the bucket compared to sales of the singly sold coin in its traditional blue velvet and satin-lined hard case. The individual proof Silver Eagle has been reaching sales that exceed 750,000 in a year’s time.


Sets may be ordered directly from the Mint via its website of www.usmint.gov or by calling 1-800-USA-MINT (872-6468).
