1998 US Mint Uncirculated Coin Set
Annual United Sates Mint Uncirculated Coin Sets are always some of the most collected items released each year by the Mint, but the 1998 US Mint Uncirculated Coin Set was even more highly sought after. This is because it was the last set to include the classic heraldic eagle design on the reverse of the Washington Quarters. The following year marked the launch of the 50 State Quarters(r) Program. The popularity of that program inspired other coin denominations to be released with collectible reverse designs as well.

The 1998 coin set includes 10 coins, one of each denomination from both the Philadelphia (“P” Mint mark) and Denver (“D” Mint mark) branches of the US Mint. In addition to the mint marks, all of the coins are also inscribed with the year “1998”, “LIBERTY” and “IN GOD WE TRUST” on their obverse.
Inscriptions on the reverse of the coins include “UNITED STATES OF AMERICA”, “E PLURIBUS UNUM” and the coin's face value as indicated below.
Abraham Lincoln Cent Coin (“ONE CENT”)
The heraldic eagle design on the Quarter depicts the eagle along with olive branches. Other reverse designs of the coins include the Lincoln Memorial on the Cent, Monticello on the Nickel, an olive branch, torch and oak branch on the Dime and a shield and eagle design on the Half Dollar.
Add the highly collectible 1998 US Mint Uncirculated Coin Set to your collection.
This set comes in Original Government Packaging (OGP), upon which is noted “This collector's set includes two 1998 Washington Quarter Dollars. This is the last time the heraldic eagle reverse will appear until at least 2009.” That year has turned into at least 2021 with the launch of the America the Beautiful Quarters(r) Program that followed the State Quarters Program. It is not known whether the heraldic eagle design will return after that date.
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.
