Sales of the 2006 U.S. Mint Uncirculated Coin Set opened with a flurry July 18. Collectors snapped up 301,013 of them in the first six days of availability.
Priced at $16.95 each, the set contains one example of each denomination from each of the Philadelphia and Denver Mints. Each coin in the set features a satin finish, which was first introduced last year.
The coins are housed in polyester film packets which are then placed in envelopes.
