What is Your Single Favorite Coin Issued in 2011?

Posted on December 21, 2011 by No Comments

The year 2011 is almost over and the Mint will probably not release too many other coins for the remainder of the year, especially since the holidays are coming up.Yosemite coin

During the year 2011, the Mint did a wonderful job of producing some really neat coins and including some great coin designs. Not to mention they also struck coins in record numbers for many series .

My single favorite coin issued in 2011 was the 5 oz. Yosemite Quarter.  Although, the coins have a date of 2010, most of them we’re not released until 2011.

Yosemite is a beautiful historic place and the fact that they managed to capture this historic and beautiful scene and strike it in a 5 oz. planchet, makes it even more appealing coin in my opinion.

What was your favorite coin that was issued in 2011?

Will You Be Buying the 25th Anniversary Silver Eagle Set? To answer click on “Comments above this post.

$1 2011 Silver Eagle SetThe Mint has announced that sometime in late October, they will release a special 2011 American Silver Eagle Set to commemorate the 25th Anniversary of the Silver Eagle series.

The set will contain five different silver eagles from 2011. 

This includes two special versions that are not usually offered by the U.S. Mint every year.

  1. The new special issue is an Uncirculated Silver Eagle with an S mintmark. (This is the first time the U.S. Mint will place an S mintmark on an Uncirculated Silver Eagle).
  2. The second special issue is a Reverse Proof struck at the Philadelphia Mint. (The last time the Mint struck a Reverse Proof coin was in 2006).
  3. The third coin is a regular bullion Silver Eagle that is issued every year by the U.S. Mint..
  4. The fourth Silver Eagle issued in the set is the regular Proof coin that is also usually offered every year by the U.S. Mint..
  5. Finally, the fifth Silver Eagle in the Set is the Uncirculated Burnished Silver eagle with W mintmark that was introduced in 2006.

The Special 25th Anniversary Silver Eagle Set has a maximum mintage of 100,000 sets. Because of the relatively low mintage of the set and for the American Silver Eagle series, the Mint has placed a five order per household rule into effect. The Mint has not yet announced the price of the set. There is hardly any doubt that this Special 25th Anniversary Eagle set will be very popular and more than likely, the sets will definitely sell out!
