Orders for 2018 Mint Set now being accepted


Monday, May 14, 2018

The U.S. Mint began accepting orders for the 2018 Mint Set on Monday.

This consists of circulation-quality strikes of the standard coins from the cent through the dollar, from both the Philadelphia and Denver mints. This set is packaged in two folders and is sold at a significant premium over-face value. To order coins from the U.S. Mint, visit its website at www.usmint.gov or call 800-872-6468.

There will be a small coin show on Sunday in Hinsdale, N.H., at the Millstream Community Center on Routes 63 and 119. Hours are 9 a.m. to 2 p.m.; admission and off-street parking are free.

The first series of the big Brimfield flea markets was held last week. Except for Saturday, the weather was good, and buyer turnout appeared to be quite strong. Many dealers I spoke with were pleased with their sales, but some expressed disappointment that there were too many buyers looking for overly specific items.
