The experts at Global Monetary Reserve are always looking for trends in Numismatics that will help our client’s add value and beauty to their already existing investments, or collections; and today all eyes are on the 2015 U.S. Marshals 3-Coin Proof Set. Of the 15,000 maximum mintage, the U.S. Mint has sold 14,763 of the Proof set which includes: One proof five-dollar gold coin, proof silver dollar, and one proof clad half-dollar. Thinking of the U.S. Marshals Set and it is expected sell out is exciting for those who have already garnered the set for themselves, but what can history show to those who have yet to buy?
Looking back to 2006, when the U.S. Mint celebrated the 20thAnniversary of the American Eagle program, sales figures for a similar three coin proof set can give some insight into what the future might hold for the U.S. Marshals set. The 2006 set included one Uncirculated Silver American Eagle, a Proof Silver Eagle, and a special Reverse Proof Silver Eagle. Released on August 30, 2006 the set had a maximum mintage of 250,000 and quickly sold out within two weeks; commanding higher secondary market prices which reached almost triple their original value! One of the more valuable coins in the set, which appears on the PCGS Top 100 Modern Coins, is the Reverse Proof: in 2008 the coin was sold for a whopping $4,600 for a PCGS Proof 70!
Today the U.S. Marshals Proof Set is already commanding a higher premium in secondary markets, some of which exceed the original price by as much as 50% the original price. Celebrating the 225thAnniversary of the establishment of the nation’s first federal law enforcement agency, the United States Marshals Service—these coins are packed full of historic, and intrinsic significance.
“It’s one of the most important sets of 2015,” says Charles Stevens, Director of Sales at GMR, “History, and great design are key features of the set, and they show phenomenal potential for growth over time.” There are only 237 sets left, but as of today the Mint is Out of Stock on the item. If you’d like to create your own set, GMR has the expertise to help you add these beautiful coins, and coins like them, to your collection.
