Biggest Uncirculated Set Ever Features Original Recipe Cents

The 2009 uncirculated set features a whopping 36 coins (18 from denver and 18 from philadelphia).  Among the highlights of the set (in my opinion):

The four newly designed Lincoln cents, which will be struck in their original alloy of 95% copper, 3% zinc, and 2% tin.  Introduced in 1909, the recipe lasted until 1982. 

The set will also feature the Kennedy Half Dollars, which are generally not released into circulation.  

From each mint there will be four presidential dollar coins and one native american dollar coin.  Since these still don't seem to circulate, this may be the best chance to procure one. 

There are also six territory dollar coins from each mint.  this represents the encore from the State Quarter Series.  All in all, this uncirculated set seems to offer much more than the typical year.  The price is $27.95, which is about double face value,which seems like quite a bargain.  For now, they are available directly from the US mint.
