The United States Mint will begin sales of the 2020 Uncirculated Mint set, the penultimate annual product for the Mint this year, later today. Sales will begin at Noon Eastern, 9:00 AM Pacific directly from the Mint on its site. This year, the Uncirculated Set is priced at $25.25. The set has no mintage limit given that it consists of circulating coins, however, there is a production limit of these sets of 213,000. When sales begin, there is no household limit on the number that can be purchased.
For those readers who are enrolled in the Enrollment Program for the Uncirculated Set, you should have already received your order confirmation email this morning from the Mint. Those enrolled in the program will enjoy free budget shipping from the Mint.
While the coins in the Uncirculated Set are circulating coins, they are struck with more pressure which brings out the details of the coins in greater clarity. The set comes in two folders, one for Denver and one for Philadelphia, with each folder containing 10 coins. The coins included:
- 2020 Lincoln Cent
- 2020 Jefferson Nickel
- 2020 Roosevelt Dime
- National Park of American Samoa (AS) ATB Quarter
- Weir Farm National Historic Site (CT) ATB Quarter
- Salt River Bay National Historical Park and Ecological Preserve (USVI) ATB Quarter
- Marsh-Billings-Rockefeller National Historical Park (VT) ATB Quarter
- Tallgrass Prairie National Preserve (KS) ATB Quarter
- 2020 Kennedy Half Dollar
- 2020 Native American Dollar featuring Elizabeth Peratrovich
Originally, the Mint had planned to include a special 2020-W Jefferson Nickel in Uncirculated condition with this year’s sets, much like they did with the 2019-W Lincoln Cent. However, due to COVID-19 and the significant impact on the Mint’s production this year, that plan has been abandoned.

Just ordered the set, a very smooth transaction unlike the disastrous end of WW2 sales. It’s too bad about the nickel, as well as the 2020 coin & currency set that was planned, but we know how things have been. Hopefully sometime next year all will be back to normal–for everything and everyone. Man I miss coin shows, but given what we’ve all faced that’s the least of it.
I hear you Richard. I miss the shows too. Hopefully by mid-2021 they will be back in full swing.
I actually use the Enrollment Program on the Uncirculated sets (and a bunch of other things) so I didn’t have to fight the site on this one! 🙂 Glad you were able to get one.
