2009 - 2019 PDS Sacagawea Business Strike Uncirculated & Proof 33 Coin Set. Beautiful Sacagawea Dollar Set showcasing all of the business strike and proof coins in the "Native American" series to date including the 2019 coins released in the spring.
This thirty five coin set includes both uncirculated business strike P mint and D mint Sacagawea dollars from 2009 through 2019 (22 coins in total) and the eleven regular proof coins released with the S mint mark from 2009 through 2019. The mint stopped trying to circulate the "golden dollars" in early 2011 as most in the US simply don't want to use a dollar coin instead of a dollar bill.
As well proof set sales at the mint, the only source of the proof coins in this set, have also tailed off significantly and a number of the modern proof sets now sell for significant premiums over their original issue price. So this is an attractive set of coins both aesthetically but also from the standpoint that it is likely their value will continue to increase.
All coins are directly from freshly cracked US mint rolls and US proof sets, handled with gloves and never circulated. Below is a description of the coin designs. 2009 - Three Sisters Agriculture.
