Coin & Currency Sets
Continuing the exploration of new product formats, the first Coinage and Currency Set was offered for the 1993 Thomas Jefferson Silver Dollar, which was issued in 2004. Each set included the uncirculated silver dollar, a 1994-P Jefferson Nickel with a special matte proof finish, and a 1976 $2 banknote. Because the nickel with the special finish was only available within this set, it became an unexpected low mintage issue within the coin series. The same situation would occur when the 1997 Botanic Garden Coinage and Currency Set was issued in 1997, which included the uncirculated silver dollar, 1997-P matte proof Jefferson Nickel, and $1 banknote. Not every set included specially minted coins or legal tender currency. The two later Coinage and Currency Sets issued for the 2001 American Buffalo and 2004 Lewis and Clark programs included the respective commemorative silver dollars, reprints of classic banknotes, and other materials.
