2001 US Mint Uncirculated Coin Set
This 2001 US Mint Uncirculated Coin Set features all examples of all of the coins that were minted for circulation in the United States in 2001. It includes two Sacagawea dollars, two half dollars, ten state quarters, two Roosevelt dimes, two Jefferson nickels, and two Lincoln pennies.

Designs of the 2001 US Mint Uncirculated Coin Set
The 2001 uncirculated coin set has a variety of different designs, some which were only produced during that year! This set includes a Sacagawea dollar, a Kennedy Half dollar, a Roosevelt dime, a Jefferson Nickel, a Lincoln Nickel, and 5 different State Quarters. All of these coins were released into circulation by the US mint in 2001, but here you have the opportunity to have an untouched version of that same coin!
On the Sacagawea dollar, she is portrayed in traditional Native American garb. She carries her infant son, Jean Baptiste, on her back. To Sacagawea’s right is the mintage year, “2001,” with the mint mark, if present, just below that. Behind her to the left of the coin are the words, “IN GOD WE TRUST,” the national motto. Over her head along the rim is the word “LIBERTY.” On the reverse, an eagle soars, forming a reverse “L” with its wings. Over the eagle’s head is the motto from the Great Seal of the United States, “E PLURIBUS UNUM” (From many, one). Denomination, “ONE DOLLAR,” is inscribed at the bottom, while “UNITED STATES OF AMERICA” runs along the top portion of the rim.
The second largest coin in the set is the Kennedy half dollar. A portrait of Kennedy is seen, surrounded by inscriptions “IN GOD WE TRUST,” “2001,” and “LIBERTY. The reverse features an adaptation of the image on the Great Seal of the United States. “UNITED STATES OF AMERICA” and “HALF DOLLAR,” are inscribed along the bottom.
The smallest coins in the set in terms of size are the Roosevelt dimes. Roosevelt’s profile faces the left side of the coin. “2001,” “IN GOD WE TRUST,” and “LIBERTY” are inscribed along the rim in the upper left. A vertical torch, which serves to represent liberty, is featured on the center of the reverse. It is flanked on the right by a symbol of strength, an oak branch, on the right, and a symbol of peace, an olive branch, on the left. “ONE DIME,” an inscription along the bottom, indicates the face value while “UNITED STATES OF AMERICA,” runs long the rim on the top of the coin.
The nickel bears the image of America’s third President, Thomas Jefferson. To the right is the word “LIBERTY,” followed by the mintage year, “2001,” and “IN GOD WE TRUST.” Jefferson’s Virginia home spans nearly the full diameter of the reverse. Its name, “MONTICELLO,” is inscribed under it. “UNITED STATES OF AMERICA” and “FIVE CENTS” is inscribed on the coin.
The penny features the right side of President Abraham Lincoln, the man who held the office during the Civil War. The word “LIBERTY” appears horizontally behind his neck, along with the mintage year. The Lincoln Memorial is on the reverse, with such detail that a careful examination reveals the seated statue of President Lincoln in the middle of it. “E PLURIBUS UNUM” is inscribed above it, along with the denomination of “ONE CENT.”
All of the quarters in the set have the same design on the obverse. President Washington is portrayed from the neck up. In a change for the State Quarters design, “UNITED STATES OF AMERICA” replaces “LIBERTY” at the top. “LIBERTY” was moved to the lower left, where the motto had been.
The reverse of the state quarters bear special designs for each of the states they commemorate. The commemorative quarters are based on the following states: New York, North Carolina, Rhode Island, Vermont, and Kentucky. New York features a topographical map of the State of New York, and an image of the statue of liberty. North Carolina displays an image of the wright brothers on their first flight on Kitty Hawk beach. Rhode Island shows an image of a sailboat in Narragansett Bay, with Pell Bridge in the background. Vermont shows a man collecting sap from maple trees, with Camel’s hump mountain in the background. Kentucky shows a horse behind a gate, ready to race, with a mansion behind them.
These Quarters are very unique and were only made that year. Make sure to not miss out on adding these coins to your collection of US currency! The image on these coins is very intricate, and it can be seen that there are a lot of details put into it.
