May 15, 2002
First Time Opportunity Helps Collectors Complete Most Popular Set

WASHINGTON — The United States Mint today announced that proof sets dated 1999, 2000 and 2001 will be available as a three–set offer beginning May 29, 2002. These sets are the unsold remaining inventory from the first three years of the 50 State Quarters Program. This will allow customers who may have missed the first three years of United States Mint Proof Sets containing the state quarters the opportunity to obtain a complete set of the entire 10–year series.

The United States Mint will offer 150,000 combined proof sets (1999, 2000, 2001 as a three–set package) for $94.95 each, with no order limits. This new product will also be offered as part of the Mint’s bulk program at $79.95 for orders over one hundred sets.

Each of the three 10–coin United States Mint Proof Sets include proof versions of that year’s Lincoln cent, Jefferson nickel, Roosevelt dime, Kennedy half dollar, and the Golden Dollar – which was first offered in year 2000 – in one sealed presentation case. A separate presentation case contains proof versions of the quarters from each state honored that year.
