Innovation Dollars First Day & Early Releases
2 2

6 posts in this topic

I am new to the Registry of Innovation Dollars. It seems like a great time to start with the series so new.

Here is my question.  Is a coin worth more points as a First Day of Issue over an Early Release over no designation at all?

Just trying to get an idea what is better to obtain for set set pointwise.  Thanks everyone!

hi - i am new to this too...so if this is not the correct place to posit this query - please let me know....

my question...is why are the P & D innovation dollars not offered in sets? not everyone can afford bags and/or rolls

and many don't don't want and/or need all those duplicates.......seems the only way to assemble a complete set

of innovations dollars is to but them individually on the secondary market.... thanks!

Hello Hic1957,

I would imagine the reason the mint doesn't offer sets is due to overhead and shipping.  Even if they did, it would be twice the price of purchasing them on eBay.  It just wouldn't make fiscal sense for the Mint.  I think you can pick up sets for less than $5 and get free shipping on eBay.  So true cost to you is less than $3 per set if you count the fact that you are getting $2 in coinage.
