Washington — The United States Mint announced today that it will begin selling the 2006 United States Mint Uncirculated Coin Set on July 18, 2006, at 12:00 noon (ET), featuring the popular satin finish that was introduced last year.
This year’s 20–coin United States Mint Uncirculated Coin Set — available for $16.95 — includes uncirculated versions of each 2006–dated circulating United States coin, bearing the Philadelphia ‘P’ and Denver ‘D’ mint mark: the Lincoln cent, the “Return to Monticello” 5–cent coin (nickel) — featuring the final obverse and reverse designs from the Westward Journey Nickel Series™ — as well as the Roosevelt dime, the Kennedy half–dollar and the Golden Dollar. (Note: the one–cent coin struck in Philadelphia does not bear a mint mark.)
The set also includes all five of the 2006–dated coins in the United States Mint’s 50 State Quarters Program — Nevada, Nebraska, Colorado, North Dakota and South Dakota. Each set is packaged in polyester film and includes a Certificate of Authenticity.
