These sets are limited to 100,000 units across all five medal product options, and can be ordered only between noon ET on January 17, 2018, and 3 p.m. ET on February 20, 2018, unless the limit is reached prior to that date. Production will be based on the orders received within this window. Fulfillment of these sets will begin in late May 2018.


Placing the sets in a backorder status is just how the Mint is implementing its delayed production and delivery policy for these sets. What will be interesting is whether or not they indicate how many of each set has been ordered in their weekly production figures over the next month.

The coins don't have this delayed production and delivery policy, so there is no backorder for them.

If you don't mind my asking, what's your plan for the proof $? Keep them all? Sell all but one?

More than likely, I will keep the sets intact.

I still really wish they offered a five medal set. Or even a dollar with five medals set.

A five-medal set would have been my preference as well.


Collecting history, one commemorative coin (or medal) at a time!

If the Mint were to do a survey, I'll bet 85-90% would like this idea too.

They used to send out survey's for their customers, ever so often. I took part in these a few times. But as far as I'm concerned, any suggestions have fallen on deaf ears. Typical Washington!

Don't you think it would have taken forever to sell 350k of the dollars...by MAKING you buy one for each medal at least they are dumping 100k of the 350k

Some thought probably DID go into this one..

Might be more like 90-95%.

That only makes me angrier. Sometimes the truth is painful.

It wouldn't be such a bitter pill to swallow if the WW1 Coin was well designed. I wouldn't be excited about having 5 of the same coin, but at least they would be nice to look at.

I would prefer to avoid duplicates, no matter how nice the design.

I did think of another option that I might have accepted. Offer the five dollar coins in five different mint-finish options. We did have five different Liberty medals in 2017, so it can be done.

If anyone is interested, PCGS is doing a special commemorative label and 2-coin holder for the coin/medal pairs.

Hmm. That is interesting. Not for me, but still interesting.

Mot cost effective to submit on your own but might be a decent buy from a dealer...especially the two coin holder

I'm not sure how PCGS will do a First Strike designation for the coin/medal pair though. PCGS says the following for First Strike

which makes sense for the coin, but with the delayed shipping of medals, the cutoff dates can't be met for the medals. If they change the cutoff date for the medals, then the coin that comes with the medal can't be considered a First Strike, as it would be way beyond the coin cutoff date.

What to do, what to do? This may be a quandary for those First Strike label collectors

No quandry...PCGS said that the Medal FS cutoff date would be revised to reflect actual shipping dates....as will the dollar "set" designation

Kinda lame to put those meaningless dates in at all

Maybe I can find myself a good deal on those inevitable PR69s.

Sadly, the first day sales for the proof is 17,287, this includes the sets. I really thought these would have done much better but it seems there is not much interest at all. Although it is probably skewed, that is an average of less than 3,500 of each medal and probably much lower as I'm sure many stand alone proofs were sold as well.

Oh well, I got my Navy medal ordered and will be happy with that............in May.

Those are numbers for the individual coins that were ordered.
