WASHINGTON — The United States Mint will begin accepting orders for the 2017 United States Mint Uncirculated Coin Set® (product code 17RJ) on May 17 at noon Eastern Time (ET).
This year’s set consists of 20 coins—one folder of ten coins from the Philadelphia Mint and one folder of ten coins from the Denver Mint. Coins in each folder include:
- Five quarters from the America the Beautiful Quarters® Program honoring Effigy Mounds National Monument (Iowa), Frederick Douglass National Historic Site (Washington, DC); Ozark National Scenic Riverways (Missouri), Ellis Island (Statue of Liberty National Monument) (New Jersey), and George Rogers Clark National Historical Park (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.
- One Kennedy half dollar
- One Roosevelt dime
- One Jefferson nickel and
- One Lincoln penny
United States Mint uncirculated coins are struck on special presses using greater force than circulating coins, producing a sharp, intricately detailed image. The coins are sealed in a blister and displayed in a folder. One folder contains coins bearing the “P” mint mark and the other contains coins bearing the “D” mint mark.
2017 marks the 225th anniversary of the United States Mint. To mark this momentous occasion, we are proud to introduce for the first time a “P” mint mark on the Lincoln penny in the Philadelphia folder.
Orders will be accepted at the Mint’s online catalog 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 here.
