The United States Mint has quietly made a change to the American Innovation Dollar Reverse Proof coins that are set to be released this year. Previously, the Mint would release an individual Reverse Proof coin for each of the Innovation Dollar releases. This year, the Mint appears to be consolidating those into one product.
On the Mint’s Product Schedule page, there are two listings that are coming this fall related to the American Innovation Dollar. The first, product 21GA, is the 2021 American Innovation Dollar Proof Set. This is not new as the Mint in 2018, 2019, and 2020 released a proof set for the Innovation Dollar that contained all four coins for that respective year.
The second is product 21GC, the 2021 American Innovation Dollar Reverse Proof Set. This is new.

Equally as important, the Mint no longer lists any individual Reverse Proof coins for the series on the Product Schedule.
The move is likely cut down overall costs of individually packaging up these coins but also likely to help bolster sales too. The Reverse Proof coins for the series have traditionally sold well, usually selling out within a few weeks after release as they were limited in production. The same likely will hold true for this new product that will contain all four Reverse Proof coins for 2021.
The Mint has only established the placeholder page for the product at this point. There is no pricing, production, or household limit information nor has the Mint confirmed that this will be a four-coin lens like it has done with the regular Proof Set for the American Innovation Dollars.
