Washington — The 2023 United States Mint (Mint) Uncirculated Coin Set will be available for purchase on December 5 at noon EST. The set contains two cards of 10 coins each, one from the United States Mint in Philadelphia and the other from the United States Mint in Denver, for a total of 20 coins. Each of the two cards includes the following 2023-dated coins with Uncirculated finishes, along with a certificate of authenticity:
- All five 2023 American Women quarters honoring:
Bessie Coleman—pilot, advocate, and pioneer who flew to great heights as the first African American and first Native American woman pilot, and first African American to earn an international pilot’s license.
Edith Kanakaʻole—indigenous Hawaiian composer, chanter, kumu hula, custodian of native culture, traditions, and natural land.
Eleanor Roosevelt— a leader, reformer, first lady, author, and Chairperson of the United Nations Human Rights Commission, who was instrumental in the passage of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights.
Jovita Idar—Mexican-American journalist, activist, teacher, community organizer, champion of education, and suffragist.
Maria Tallchief—America’s first major prima ballerina who broke barriers as a Native American ballerina.
- One Native American $1 coin featuring Maria Tallchief in balletic pose. Maria Tallchief was America’s first major prima ballerina, and she and her husband, George Balanchine, transformed American classical ballet. In addition to Tallchief, four other American Indian ballerinas from Oklahoma achieved international recognition in the 20th century, including her younger sister, Marjorie Tallchief; Yvonne Chouteau; Rosella Hightower; and Moscelyne Larkin. Celebrated as the “Five Moons,” their legacy of achievement and inclusion continues to influence ballet today. A nod to the Five Moons is presented in the lunar motif, while the four ballerinas in the background are symbolic of both Tallchief’s American Indian ballerina contemporaries and the generations of dancers they inspired. Inscriptions are “UNITED STATES OF AMERICA,” “MARIA TALLCHIEF,” “$1,” and “AMERICAN INDIANS IN BALLET.”
- One Kennedy half dollar
- One Roosevelt dime
- One Jefferson nickel
- One Lincoln penny
