2017 edition of the U.S. Mint’s annual Uncirculated Mint set will be
offered to the collecting public beginning at noon ET May 17.
20-coin set will be the first Uncirculated Mint
set since 2006 not to contain any Presidential dollars. The
Presidential $1 Coin Program ended in 2016 at the release of the
Ronald Reagan Presidential dollar (although numismatic products
containing Presidential dollars dating as far back as 2009 are still
offered by the U.S. Mint).
20 coins in each 2017 set are struck with a finish the Mint calls “far
superior to circulation quality strikes, which are struck at high speed.”
sets contain coins produced at both the Philadelphia and Denver Mints,
both of which are responsible for circulating coin output. The coins are:
copper-plated zinc cent. For the first time in the U.S. Mint’s
225-year history, the cent from the Philadelphia Mint carries that
Mint’s P Mint mark. The cents struck at that Mint for circulation also
bear the P Mint mark. The P Mint mark is only being deployed on the
cents dated 2017; strikes in 2018 will revert to having no Mint mark.
copper-nickel 5-cent coin.
the Beautiful copper-nickel clad quarter dollars bearing reverse
designs showcasing Effigy Mounds National Monument; Frederick Douglass
National Historic Site in Washington, D.C.; Ozark National Scenic
Riverways; Ellis Island National Monument; and George Rogers Clark
National Historical Park.
copper-nickel clad half dollar.
American manganese-brass clad dollar, featuring Sequoyah, inventor of
the Cherokee Syllabary.
for the 2017 set is $20.95, $6 less than charged for the 2016 set,
which includes six Presidential dollars. Orders for the 2017 set may
be placed in advance of the May 17 release through the Product
Enrollment program on the Mint’s website.
26-coin 2016 Uncirculated Mint set is still being offered for sale by the U.S. Mint at $26.95.
Through the April 2, 2017, sales report, the Mint has recorded sales
of 278,665 of those sets.
