On January 11, the 2018 United States Mint Birth Set (18RD) will go on sale at noon on the Mint’s website for the seventh year in a row. This set of coins is ideal for celebrating any upcoming births in 2018. It comes with a special presentation folder which provides room for personalized messages with space to record your baby’s information. The product contains no mintage, household order, or product limits as well.
This set includes five Proof quality coins: A Lincoln penny, a Jefferson nickel, a Roosevelt dime, a Kennedy half dollar, and an America the Beautiful Pictured Rocks National Lakeshore quarter.
Each coin included in the set possesses the “S” mint mark of the San Francisco Mint. These Proof coins feature a mirror-like background and sharp relief. This is achieved by specially treating, cleaning, and polishing Proof blanks in order to produce high-quality strikes. The folder that the coins are housed in comes with a certificate of authenticity on the back and displays individual coin specifications on the sleeve.
