Presidential Dollar Coin Historical Signature Set


The US Mint has quietly launched another Presidential Dollar related offering- The United States Presidential Dollar Coin Historical Signature Set.

The first set in what seems to be a new ongoing offering features George Washington and can be found here. The set includes a 2007 Proof George Washington Dollar and a Presidential intaglio print with the official presidential signature from the Bureau of Engraving and Printing. These come in a textured, leather-like folder with a certified of authenticity.

These sets went on sale yesterday April 8, 2008 at 12:00 Noon ET. The sets are priced at $19.95. This set seems to be a little bit of a surprise since the Mint made no prior product announcements or release notice. A reader mentioned the new set in yesterday's comments.

This offering is the latest in a plethora of Presidential Dollar products. The Mint has offered the new dollars in bags, rolls, annual proof sets, annual uncirculated sets for each mint and both mints, individual proofs, single uncirculated dollars paired with First Spouse medals, First Day Covers, and as part of the Annual Uncirculated Dollar Set.

The appeal of the Presidential Dollar Coin Historical Signature Set would seem to be the intaglio print plus the fancy packaging. I don't anticipate that this will be a very popular offering, but at least it's different than some of the other recombined Presidential Dollar products.

Unfortunately, the US Mint announced that this series is discontinued after 2008.

12301292 FROM WHAT I UNDERSTAND THERE WAS ONLY 3800 BOXES MADE. I'M NOT SURE IF THATS 3800 TOTAL OR 3800 EACH ISSUE BUT EITHER WAY THIS WOULD MAKE THIS A HIGHLY RARE ITEM. I SAW 1 BOX LISTED ON EBAY FOR A $800 IF YOU HAVE ALL 8 I WOULD THINK YOU COULD JUST ABOUT NAME YOUR PRICE. I HAVE 4 MYSELF AND HOPE TO SELL THEM TO HELP FINANCE MY DAUGHTER'S EDUCATION

Too bad, I was waiting all year for the 09 edition only to find out it is discontinued. Such as life.
