The San Francisco Mint is currently producing the coins for the limited-edition 10-coin set, with each coin to exhibit an Enhanced Uncirculated finish.
The 2017-S Enhanced Uncirculated Coin set is limited to a release of 225,000 sets, but no household ordering limit is in place. No pricing for the set was available as of July 7. The coins will be available only in the set and will not be included in any other numismatic product in 2017.
All of the coins will bear the San Francisco Mint’s S Mint mark.
The set is being issued in conjunction with the U.S. Mint’s yearlong celebration in 2017 of the bureau’s 225th anniversary — hence, the 225,000-set limit.
