1994 US Mint Uncirculated Coin Set
This 1994 US Mint Uncirculated Coin Set consists of two sets of the coins that were put into circulation by the United States in that year. One of the sets features coins produced by the Philadelphia Mint while the other has coins from the Denver Mint. The sets from each mint are organized together in pliofilm sleeves, which keep them from knocking into and damaging each other. Each of the sleeves has colored borders, blue in the case of the Philadelphia Mint and red in the case of the Denver Mint. Each sleeve also includes a token from the mint that produced the coins in the sleeve.
Designs of the coins in this 1994 US Mint Uncirculated Coin Set
Presidential images appear on the obverses of each of the coins included in this 1994 US Mint Uncirculated Coin Set. Those presidents give the coins their names: the Kennedy half dollar, the Washington quarter, the Roosevelt dime, the Jefferson nickel, and the Lincoln cent. The cent is the only one that differs in color from the rest, taking on a copper tone. It is also the only one on which the president in the image faces to the right. The penny is one of only two, the other being the nickel, on which the president’s shoulders are shown. The word “LIBERTY,” the national motto, “IN GOD WE TRUST,” and the year of mintage, “1994,” are shared by all the coins in the set. Those struck at the Philadelphia Mint also share the “P” mint mark, while those struck in Denver bear a “D” instead.
The reverses also share some commonalities. On each one is the face value of the coin, “E PLURIBUS UNUM,” the motto that comes from the Great Seal of the United States, and the words “UNITED STATES OF AMERICA.” Buildings that are associated with the presidents on the obverse appear on two of the coins, the Lincoln Memorial in the case of the penny and Jefferson’s home, Monticello, in the case of the nickel. The Washington quarter features an eagle holding an olive branch and arrows, as does the Kennedy half dollar, though the design in the latter much more closely resembles the one on the presidential seal. The dime has, from left to right, an olive branch, a torch, and an oak branch.
PLEASE NOTE: This U.S. Mint product was not purchased by us directly from the Mint but from collectors like you and other dealers. We make every effort to make sure the packaging is acceptable and that the coins are problem free. You may, however, receive coins that have toning or haze. This occurs naturally over time and is common to see. There may be some imperfections in packaging due to the sets leaving one collection to go into another. Please keep this in mind when examining your sets.
