WASHINGTON — The United States Mint announced today that it will begin accepting orders for the 2007 United States Mint Uncirculated Coin Set® at 12 noon (ET) on October 9. Priced at $22.95, this year’s set is the first to include uncirculated versions of the new Presidential $1 Coins honoring the first four Presidents of the United States. The set also includes uncirculated versions of the five quarters issued in the United States Mint’s 50 State Quarters Program, the Golden Dollar featuring Sacagawea, the Kennedy half–dollar, the Roosevelt dime, the Jefferson nickel and the Lincoln cent.
The United States Mint Uncirculated Coin Set contains a complete set of 2007–dated coins from the United States Mints at Philadelphia and Denver. These coins are struck on special presses using greater force than circulating coins, producing a sharp, intricately detailed image, and feature the satin finish introduced in 2005. New packaging is being introduced for the 2007 United States Mint Uncirculated Coin Set. 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. The coin folders are enhanced with scenic views of the Philadelphia and Denver areas.
