Last year it was reverse proof Presidential dollars that guaranteed Mint sellouts.


Now nearly a year after the last one was issued, the Mint hopes to end the sequence of Coin & Chronicles sets with one honoring President Ronald Reagan.

It will be offered at noon Eastern Time Oct. 11.

Details are sketchy.

What is in the set, issue price and household order limit have not yet been revealed.

Last year four such Presidential Coin & Chronicles sets were sold out quickly, three on the first day of issue.

The last one, honoring Lyndon Johnson, was issued Oct. 27, 2015. It featured a 2015-P reverse proof dollar, a silver Johnson Presidential medal, a 1973 Johnson postage stamp and an information booklet.

Price was $57.95.

Mintage was 25,000.

The Harry Truman, Dwight D. Eisenhower and John F. Kennedy sets were also issued in 2015. Mintages were 17,000, 17,000 and 50,000, respectively. It took two weeks for all the Kennedy sets to be purchased.
