Making American History Coin & Currency Set

Three upcoming U.S. Mint coin products, including this Coin & Currency Set, will include Silver Eagles

In addition to 2012 Bullion Silver Eagles, 2012-W Proof Silver Eagles from West Point and 2012-S American Silver Eagle Two Coin Proof Sets from San Francisco, the United States Mint has planned to launch three more coin products containing Silver Eagles.

They will be the collector uncirculated Silver Eagle, the Making American History Coin & Currency Set, and the Annual Uncirculated Dollar Coin Set.

Coming up first are 2012-W Uncirculated American Silver Eagles. Their release will be Thursday, August 2. Just like the 2011-dated version, the price for each is listed as $45.95. The uncirculated Silver Eagle has a finish that is similar to the bullion version, but the uncirculated Eagle bears the "W" mint mark of West Point on its reverse near the inscriptions 1 OZ. FINE SILVER. It is packaged for collectors in a protective coin holder and presentation case.

A recently announced offering, the Making American History Coin & Currency Set, is due to launch on Tuesday, August 7, for $72.95. Its appearance on the U.S. Mint product schedule was a bit of a surprise to collectors, especially those who already purchased the American Silver Eagle Two Coin Proof Set from San Francisco. The Making American History Coin & Currency Set will contain one of the Silver Eagles from the Two Coin Set, the 2012-S Proof American Silver Eagle Coin. It will also have one Series 2009 $5 note with a portrait of Lincoln and a designation from the San Francisco Federal Reserve Bank. The upcoming set celebrates the United States Mint’s 220th year and the Bureau of Engraving and Printing’s 150th anniversary.

The last product is also a bit of a surprise. On September 6, the U.S. Mint’s Annual Uncirculated Dollar Coin Set will hit the market. Its price has yet to be announced. This set was intended to be an annual offering starting in 2007, but it only lasted until 2008. In 2009 and 2010, the U.S. Mint did not produce uncirculated Silver Eagles. They returned in 2011 but the set did not reappear.

Making up the 2012 Annual Uncirculated Dollar Coin Set are six coins. They include the uncirculated Silver Eagle, the four Presidential $1 coins and the Native American $1 coin.

Upon their respective release dates, the U.S. Mint will launch the coin products starting at 12 noon Eastern Time. Purchases can be made online or by phone at or 1-800-USA-MINT (872-6468). A shipping and handling fee of $4.95 applies to all domestic orders.

    Absolutely Too darn many Silver Eagle issues for one year, especially where individual coins and sets have common elements. At current prices, the Mint is cleaning out the savings of those collectors who are struggling to maintain a complete set of silver eagle coins, while making ends meet at home.
