2008 Annual Uncirculated Dollar Coin Set

The US Mint will be releasing the 2008 Annual Uncirculated Dollar Coin Set on August 7, 2008 at 12:00 Noon ET.

This set will contain uncirculated versions of six dollar coins produced by the Mint during 2008. The dollars include:
  • 2008-P James Monroe Presidential Dollar
  • 2008-P John Quincy Adams Presidential Dollar
  • 2008-P Andrew Jackson Presidential Dollar
  • 2008-P Martin Van Buren Presidential Dollar
  • 2008-P Sacagawea Dollar
  • 2008-W American Silver Eagle
The sets are offered for $37.95 each. Last year's sets, which are still on sale, were priced at $31.95 each. The price increase of $6 seems to be attributable to the rise in the price of silver. However, it's worth noting that the price difference between the separately sold 2007-W Unc Silver Eagle and the 2008-W Unc Silver Eagle was only $4. See: 2008-W Silver Eagle Release Date and Pricing.

Last year's 2007 Annual Uncirculated Dollar Coin Set proved to be a popular seller. The Mint has sold 88,966 sets according to the latest Mint Stats from Numismaster. I expect that sales of the 2007 set may end once the 2008 set goes on sale. You may just have a few days left to order this set for the relative bargain price.

The Mint has already posted the product page for the 2008 Annual Uncirculated Dollar Set here. Orders will not be accepted until the official start of sales on August 7.

Update: Even though sales of the 2008 Annual Uncirculated Dollar Coin Set have begun, the Mint has kept the 2007 Set available for sale at the initial price of $31.95.

It is interesting that the mint

'07 from their website.

They have a message for the Proof ASEs "Product Not Available" on the Mint Website. They may also hold sales of all ASE singles and sets for a new (lower) prices...
