The United States Mint has sold out the 50,000-set edition of the
2014 American $1 Coin and Currency sets, according to sales figures
released Dec. 16.
The coin contains an Enhanced Uncirculated 2014-D Native American
dollar, a coin that is available only in the set.
Mint officials failed to disclose the uniqueness of the coin in the
set (which also features a Series 2013 $1 note) when it initially
announced the set. Once the nature of the coin was identified, the set
became a hot property among U.S. Mint customers. The set has been
taken periodically off sale with an "Out-of-stock" notice
accompanying the set's order page.
Examples of the sets have been offered for sale on eBay at "buy
it now" prices ranging from $15 and more above the set's issue
price. Completed sales on eBay have been at the $28 to $31 price level
for single sets. Several transactions have been recorded for sales
featuring multiple sets.
