The United States Mint has reduced its prices on eight 2016 numismatic coin sets, compared to 2015 prices for the annual sets.
The change in prices was published Jan. 20 in the Federal Register.
The price reduction results from inclusion of fewer coins in each set. Only three Presidential dollars will be issued in 2016, the final three in the series that began in February 2007. The presidents to be honored in 2016 are Richard M. Nixon, Gerald R. Ford and Ronald Reagan. Four presidents per year were honored from 2007 through 2015.
Various 2016 Proof and Uncirculated Mint sets include one or more of the Presidential dollars.
