2009 Lincoln Coin and Chronicles Set

One of the more highly awaited US Mint products will go on sale tomorrow. This is the Lincoln Coin and Chronicles Set. Ever since the release of the first newly designed 2009 Lincoln Cent, collectors have flocked to the new US Mint’s Lincoln related offerings from the Two Roll Sets to the most recently released 2009 Lincoln Proof Set. The latest product will provide some special appeal.

lincoln-coin-chroniclesFirst, it is limited to only 50,000 units. This will make it the lowest production Lincoln-related product from the US Mint this year. The Birthplace Two Roll Set had a production of 96,000 sets and continues to sell at a huge premium. Second, the set contains the 2009 Proof Lincoln Silver Dollar, which has sold out in individual options. The coins currently sell for more than the price of the full Lincoln Coin and Chronicle Set.

Besides the 2009 Lincoln Silver Dollar already mentioned, the sets also contain all four 2009 Proof Lincoln Cents struck in 95% copper, a reproduction of a photograph of Lincoln, a reproduction of the Gettysburg Address, and the obligatory certificate of authenticity. Altogether the set looks well presented and stands as a nice centerpiece to a collection of Lincoln Bicentennial products.

There is sure to be a rush of collectors trying to get the set before it sells out. They go on sale on the US Mint’s website tomorrow October 15, 2009 at 12:00 Noon ET. The sets are priced at $55.95 and limited to only one set per household.

I received my Lincoln coins and chronicles set Saturday, I opened it up and found the first page of the “Gettysburg Address” glued in upside down, anyone else report this problem?
