June 30 is fast approaching and coin collectors are getting ready to place their orders for the very first reverse proof Presidential dollar coin.
It will be the centerpiece of the Harry S. Truman Coin and Chronicles Set.
Issue price will be the same $57.95 figure applied to the Franklin Delano Roosevelt set from 2014, which includes just an ordinary proof dollar.
Maximum mintage of the new Truman set will be 3,000 less than the Roosevelt set at 17,000, though in actuality, the Roosevelt set has yet to sell out. Sales currently stand at 12,738.
It is possible that because of the desirability of a reverse proof dollar that the Truman set could ultimately have a higher sales figure than the Roosevelt set, but that outcome will only be determined by the buyers in the future.
The Mint has established a 5-set household order limit for the Truman set perhaps in expectation that collectors will view it as desirable as the 2014 American $1 Coin and Currency Set. That set featured just an enhanced uncirculated finish Native American dollar paired with a Series 2013 $1 Federal Reserve Note.
Its 50,000 mintage was sold out quickly in December at a price of $13.95 each.
The U.S. Mint will also sell 2015 Coin and Chronicles Sets for Dwight D. Eisenhower, John F. Kennedy and Lyndon B. Johnson.
Issue prices and sale dates have not been determined for these. Maximum number of sets available will be an identical 17,000 each except for the Kennedy set, which will have a 25,000 sales limit.
