Today, May 13, the United States Mint released its 2014 edition of the annual Uncirculated Coin Set.
Featuring 28 coins, this always popular annual set is available for $27.95. Subscribers who signed up earlier in the year to receive this set automatically paid $25.15, thanks to a 10% discount promotion.
The 2014 United States Mint Uncirculated Coin Set, or 2014 Mint Set as it will be commonly called, has 14 coins in uncirculated quality from Philadelphia and 14 coins in uncirculated quality from Denver. These are locations of the Mint’s busiest production plants because they also manufacture all the circulating coinage for the United States.
Coins within the 2014 Mint Set also represent those that are intended for circulation. However, the set’s coins are produced for numismatic purposes to uncirculated quality.
"Uncirculated coins are struck on special presses using greater force than circulating coins, producing a sharp, intricately detailed image," describes the U.S. Mint.
Uncirculated Coins in 2014 Mint Set
Coins are split into two different folders that allow for easy viewing. The uncirculated coins from the Philadelphia Mint are presented in a blue-themed folder while those from the Denver Mint are held within a red-themed folder.
Folders not only showcase the coins but offer their specifications. For added protection, each coin is held in protective blisters. The 28 coins within the 2014 Mint Set include:
- 2014 P&D America the Beautiful Quarters honoring Great Smokey Mountains National Park in Tennessee, Shenandoah National Park in Virginia, Arches National Park in Utah, Great Sand Dunes National Park in Colorado and Everglades National Park in Florida
- 2014 P&D Presidential $1 Coins honoring Warren G. Harding, Calvin Coolidge, Herbert Hoover and Franklin D. Roosevelt
- 2014 P&D Native American $1 commemorating native hospitality ensuring the success of the Lewis and Clark Expedition
- 2014 P&D Kennedy Half-Dollars
- 2014 P&D Roosevelt Dimes
- 2014 P&D Jefferson Nickels
- 2014 P&D Lincoln Cents
Of these, the four 2014 Presidential $1 Coins, the 2014 Native American $1 Coin and the five 2014 America the Beautiful Quarters depict designs never released as part of an annual uncirculated coin set.
