2011 Presidential $1 Coin Uncirculated Set
The United States Mint will begin sales of the 2011 Presidential Dollars Uncirculated Set on April 27, 2011 at 12:00 Noon ET. The coins included in this year's set feature Andrew Johnson, Ulysses S. Grant, Rutherford B. Hayes, and James Garfield.
One example from the US Mint facilities at Philadelphia and Denver are included for each release, for a total of eight coins. These are mounted in an illustrated folder that includes biographical information for each President.
The front of the folder is slightly modified from the design used for 2007 to 2010 sets, in order to incorporate the US Mint's new branding. The four sections including portraits of each president are reduced slightly in size and a black bar is added at the bottom with the US Mint logo and Treasury Department seal.
Each set is priced at $19.95 plus applicable shipping and handling. This is an increase of $1 from last year's comparable product.
While it is not specified in the press release or preliminary product page, presumably these uncirculated coins carry the "brilliant finish" used for the 2011 Uncirculated Mint Set. Last year, a satin finish was used for the annual mint set and Presidential Dollar Uncirculated Set.
The 2010-dated set went on sale more than a year ago. Through the most recent sales report, the US Mint has sold 95,254 units. In the prior year, the 2009-dated set had last reported sales of 105,059 units.
