Collectors will be limited to five 2016 American $1 Coin & Currency Sets per household when the numismatic product goes on sale at noon Eastern Time June 16 from the U.S. Mint.

The set is offered at $14.95 each, with a product limit of 75,000 sets.

In addition to the Enhanced Uncirculated dollar struck at the San Francisco Mint with the S Mint mark incuse in the edge, the set will also include a Series 2013 $1 Federal Reserve note from one of the 12 Federal Reserve Bank locations across the United States.

The 2016 set is the third in a series. The 2014 set includes an Enhanced Uncirculated 2014-D Native American dollar struck at the Denver Mint. The 2015 set includes a 2015-W Enhanced Uncirculated Native American dollar struck at the West Point Mint. That leaves the Philadelphia Mint as the only one of the four U.S. Mint production facilities that has not contributed an Enhanced Uncirculated Native American dollar to an American $1 Coin and Currency set.

Each of the three coins issued in the sets bears a design celebrating a Native American contribution to the nation. The 2016 coin honors Code Talkers. The 2016 set contains historical information about the Native American Code Talkers and their contributions to the coded communication in native languages used in World Wars I and II. A certificate of authenticity is printed on the package.

A sleeve is also included. The coin is available only in the set and each note, while not distinctive, contains a low serial number, according to the Mint.

The 2016 Native American dollar coin is the eighth in the series of coins honoring Native Americans and the important contributions made by Native American tribes and individual Native Americans to the development and history of the United States.

The obverse design retains the central figures of sculptor Glenna Goodare's Sacagawea design first produced in 2000.

The reverse design features two helmets and two feathers that form a "V," symbolizing victory, unity, and the important role that the code talkers played.
