    Ive been starting to hoard these. I like them, each one has coin(or two) unique to the set, and low mintage. Newest one available this wed with a mintage of only 50,000, the enhanced Indians in space Sacagawea, and Crisp 1$, I like the story and history and presentation. 19nr_a.jpg
    Hey before the talks about uncollectable series of the Sacagawea, check the newest redbook prices, and mintages. they sure do have some in the expensive affordable range, such as the Reverse Proof 2016-and 2015 presidents, and all of the enhanced versions Keep going up in value, Ive been hoarding them. sets and the Sacagawea dollars, trying to get a complete set.

    Lewis and Clark 2004 The $10 Specimen, and the Lewis and Clark Silver Dollar. it says the $10 note is legal tender, its twice the size of a normal one. I bet the ladies at the gas station would look at you funny. IMG_20190720_183939019.jpg

    Is the Native American coin a special finish? If not, why is it a low mintage coin?

    Yes, Enhanced, uncirculated, half way a reverse proof. you can kind of see on the photo above, I did not take a pic of the reverse, but same difference. I like to re answer, there are different native American Sacagawea coins and finishes, the ones in the coin and currency sets are enhanced, but they have other limited sets, proofs, different years, even the regular ones are not regular anymore. they have different mintages. the redbook has the numbers. or you can look them up on the internet too.

    I believe you're incorrect as the mattle nickel was only available in the set, no other set or mint product. This set also had some star notes a very limited run that were used in this limited edition set.

    I know the star note was in some, however im not wrong, the 1997 botanical gardens had the matte Nickel also, witch part was wrong? I have 3 of these.

    The 94 and 97 both had matte finished nickels which were only available in those two sets. No other mint sets or products could you get those two nickels. Only the coin and currency sets.
    Those 2 nickels are the lowest produced in any Jefferson nickel.the 97 was only 25 k

    Ok, so I was correct, Now, the reason I don't know for sure on where the other nickels are is the mintage is over 100k and the combination of both sets together is shows 50k. the nickel has a mintage of 167 thousand. its certainly possible the redbook mintage numbers are wrong.

    I picked up a couple Botanical Gardens sets back in '97. I'm glad I did, the nickels and silver dollars were both nice additions to the collection.

    @Paddy54 is correct.

    The 1994 matte nickel was only available in the set...there was a total of 167,703 sets...thus 167,703 matte nickels

    The 1997 matte nickel was only available in the set...there was a total of 25,000 sets...thus 25,000 matte nickels

    If you read the second link, the 1994 Set was supposed to be limited to 50,000 but the mint forgot to mention that and ended up selling more

    Meow will try and get a pair. Meow thinks Meow read that there was a limit of two per household. At least its not too pricey. Kitty is broke as it is.

    Do they list a value of these somewhere? There are quite a few items Meow would like to see a guide for. Is it because of fleabay, and the internet that they don't seem to make value guides anymore?

    eBay is the best source to see real time data. The Redbook and other guides have a number that is at best an estimate based on old data.

    If you're wondering about those Native American Coin and Currency Sets, the first year (2014) still has a bit of a premium while the other two (2015 and 2016) sell close to issue price.
