2009 Presidential $1 Coin Uncirculated Set

The US Mint will offer the 2009 Presidential Dollar Uncirculated Coin Set on April 2, 2009 at 12:00 Noon ET.

This set will include one uncirculated coin from the Philadelphia and Denver Mint for each of the 2009 Presidential Dollar Coins. In past sets, the coins have been the satin finish versions of the Presidential Dollars found in Mint Sets, as opposed to regular circulation strikes. The eight coins come in a custom holder which includes biographical sketches of each President.

The following coins will be included:

2009 P & D William Henry Harrison Presidential Dollars
2009 P & D John Tyler Presidential Dollars
2009 P & D James K. Polk Presidential Dollars
2009 P & D Zachary Taylor Presidential Dollars

Collectors can actually obtain these eight coins in the full 2009 Uncirculated Mint Set, which is currently scheduled to be released by the US Mint in the summer. It's generally a better value to buy the full annual set, however the US Mint sells a surprisingly large number of the separate Presidential Dollar Uncirculated Sets. To date, they have sold over 75,000 units of the 2008 set, which still remains on sale at the time of writing this post.

The sets are priced at $15.95 each and the US Mint's product page can be found here, although ordering options won't be available until the start of sales.

This is nice, but are there going to be 2009 Individual Proof Coins?

I have the 8 individual proofs from 2007 and 2008, and I am really hoping that they didn't abandon this packaging option..

Unfortunately, the US Mint discontinued the individual proof Presidential Dollars.

They still offer the 4 coin 2009 Presidential Dollar Proof Set at $14.95.
