2009-uncirculated-coin-set-us-mint.jpg One of the most-anticipated coin sets of the year has been released.

As of October 1st, you can now order the 2009 uncirculated coin set.

The 2009 uncirculated coin set is big! Thirty-six coins (yes, 36!) come in the 2009 uncirculated set.

That includes 18 coins from the Denver mint and 18 coins from the Philadelphia mint.

The bigger set, however, also means a bigger price than last year’s set. The 2009 uncirculated coin set costs $27.95, compared to $22.95 for the 2008 uncirculated coin set.


Coins In The 2009 Uncirculated Set

With 36 coins included in a single set, you may be wondering what the 2009 uncirculated coin set includes.

Here’s a breakdown:

  • 8 Lincoln cents (Early Childhood, Formative Years, Professional Life, and Presidency — 4 from Philadelphia and 4 from Denver)
  • 2 Jefferson nickels (1 from Philadelphia, 1 from Denver)
  • 2 Roosevelt dimes (1 from Philadelphia, 1 from Denver)
  • 12 District of Columbia and U.S. Territories quarters (Washington D.C., Puerto Rico, Guam, American Samoa, U.S. Virgin Islands, and Northern Mariana Islands — 6 from Philadelphia, 6 from Denver)
  • 2 Kennedy half dollars (1 from Philadelphia, 1 from Denver)
  • 8 Presidential $1 coins (William Henry Harrison, John Tyler, James K. Polk, Zachary Taylor — 4 from Philadelphia, 4 from Denver)
  • 2 Native American $1 coins (1 from Philadelphia, 1 from Denver)

Now that is quite a collection!


The Best Thing About This Set

You may have heard that 2009 Lincoln cents are being made from mostly copper — the first time since 1982.

What makes the set really neat is the fact that the 4 different Lincoln cents included are made of the same metal content that the first Lincoln cents in 1909 contained: 95% copper and 5% tin and zinc!

The 4 Lincoln cents are commemoratives which honor the bicentennial (200th anniversary) of Lincoln’s birth.

Each of the 4 different cent designs profiles a specific period in Lincoln’s life:

  • Early Life
  • Formative Years
  • Professional Life
  • Presidency

The 4 designs are being released about 12 weeks apart.


Demand For The 2009 Uncirculated Coin Set

While there are no production or household ordering limits currently advertised for the 2009 uncirculated coin set, it is likely that there will be many casual collectors and advanced numismatists clamoring to get at least one set.

  1. Hello to all. I have two 2009 ,could you tell me if the dark one has that satin finish and maybe give me a call to grade on it on them and as always thank you very much

    • Hi, David —

      Satin finish Lincoln cents came from the uncirculated sets. From what I can tell in the photos, it appears this cent is a business issue based on the strike quality. Assuming this checks out as I suggest, such a piece in uncirculated grade is worth about 10 to 15 cents.
