2003 United States Mint set of 20 coins in the original mint packaging
This year represents the continuation of the Statehood quarter series, the Sacagawea dollar series, and all the other denomination series coins that collectors have grown used to over the generations. It is a low mintage set with a lot of coins, some of which were not minted for general circulation!
The 20 coins represented in this set are one each, Philadelphia Mint and Denver Mint examples of the following: Lincoln cent, Jefferson nickel, Roosevelt dime, Statehood Washington quarters representing Massachusetts, Maryland, South Carolina, New Hampshire, and Virginia, Kennedy half dollar, and the Sacagawea dollar, which was not minted for general circulation and the only way to obtain one each of these coins from the mint was through this set. Even the Kennedy half dollars were not readily circulated and for the most part can only be obtained in these sets!
The packaging has become rather standard, with the coins sealed into pockets in four cellophane sheets, two of which contain the five quarters for each Mint and the other two contain the remainder of the set. The Denver mint coins are sealed in cellophane with a red border, and the Philadelphia coins are sealed in cellophane with a blue border. Each pair of the parts with matching colors are inside envelopes with a graphic design matching the color of the borders of the sets contained within.
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.
