The United States Mint June 4 announced release dates for several numismatic products, including some first-time issues.

Among the products to be offered for the first time are the 2018-S San Francisco Mint Silver Reverse Proof set, which begins sales July 23, and the Proof 2018-W American Eagle 1-ounce palladium $25 coin which is scheduled for sale beginning Sept. 6.


original design for the Washington Monument Inside Coin World: Note shows Washington Monument as it should have looked: A 19th century note shows the Washington Monument in its original though abandoned form. Also in the June 25 Coin World, a coin scandal begins in 1935.


The Silver Reverse Proof set, to be offered at $54.95, will contain the same 10 denominations as the regular Silver Proof set, but the finish will have mirrored devices shining from frosted fields, instead of the standard frosted devices on mirrored fields. The set marks the 50th anniversary of Proof set output in San Francisco.

The Roosevelt dime, the five America the Beautiful quarter dollars and Kennedy half dollar will be struck in .900 fine silver.

In the September offering, the Proof 2018-W American Eagle palladium coin has the same designs as those on the 2017 bullion version. Both palladium coins are products of the West Point Mint but only the Proof version will bear the W Mint mark.

The palladium coins’ designs are by sculptor Adolph A. Weinman. The obverse replicates the obverse design of the Winged Liberty Head dime, while the reverse features Weinman’s reverse executed for the American Institute of Architects gold medal, first awarded in 1907.
