The United States Mint will accept orders for the 225th Anniversary Enhanced Uncirculated Coin Set (product code 17XC) today at noon Eastern Time (ET).
Struck in celebration of the Mint’s 225th anniversary, this set contains 10 coins with an Enhanced Uncirculated finish featuring a combination of laser-frosted areas and an unpolished field that accentuates design details. The process creates a unique contrast distinctly different from the mirror-like finish of Proof coins. Each coin bears the “S” mintmark of the U.S. Mint at San Francisco.
The following coins from the San Francisco Mint are included in the set:
- Five quarters from the America the Beautiful Quarters Program, honoring
Effigy Mounds National Monument in Iowa; Frederick Douglass National Historic Site in the District of Columbia; Ozark National Scenic Riverways in Missouri; Ellis Island in New Jersey; and George Rogers Clark National Historical Park in Indiana.
- One Native American $1 coin with a reverse design featuring a profiled likeness of Sequoyah writing “Sequoyah from Cherokee Nation” in syllabary along the border of the design. Inscriptions are UNITED STATES of AMERICA, $1, and Sequoyah written in English in the field of the design.
- One Kennedy half dollar
- One Roosevelt dime
- One Jefferson nickel
- One Lincoln cent
The coins are presented in two coin lenses—five coins per lens—and packaged in a black matte box with a certificate of authenticity. Mintage for this set is limited to 225,000 units.
The 225th Anniversary Enhanced Uncirculated Coin Set is priced at $29.95. Orders will be accepted at https://catalog.usmint.gov/ and at 1-800-USA-MINT (872-6468). Hearing- and speech-impaired customers with TTY equipment may order at 1-888-321-MINT. Information about shipping options is available at https://catalog.usmint.gov/customer-service/shipping.html.
