This article presents photos of a United States Mint 225th anniversary product, the 2017-S Enhanced Uncirculated Coin Set.
Released Tuesday, Aug. 1, the San Francisco Mint-produced product includes 10 clad coins that feature enhanced uncirculated finishes. Priced at $29.95, the set’s status turned to unavailable within minutes of launching. However, the U.S. Mint reopened sales the morning of Aug. 3 after reconciling orders and cancellations. No more than 225,000 sets will be sold.
Included within them are the year’s major coins from the cent to the dollar. They are protected by two lenses, accompanied by a card that includes a U.S. Mint Certificate of Authenticity and coin specifications, and packaged in a black matte box.
Here are four photos showing both sides of the two lenses and their enhanced uncirculated coins:
The five quarters and dollar bear one-year-only reverse designs. The dollar’s obverse or heads side features the traditional "Sacagawea" design. The reverse features a likeness of Sequoyah writing "Sequoyah from Cherokee Nation" in syllabary. Here are two photos of a set’s dollar:
This year’s five quarters feature designs honoring Effigy Mounds National Monument in Iowa; Frederick Douglass National Historic Site in the District of Columbia; Ozark National Scenic Riverways in Missouri; Ellis Island in New Jersey; and George Rogers Clark National Historical Park in Indiana. Here are some photos showing how they look in enhanced uncirculated:
