About the sets: The 2004-PD Mint Set is notable for the fact that it contains two commemorative Jefferson nickels. In commemoration of the Louisiana Purchase, and Lewis and Clark's expedition, the President enacted Public Law 108-15 to modify the Jefferson Nickel in 2004 and 2005 in order to reflect images evocative of their historic expedition into the Louisiana Territory. Officially named the Westward Journey Nickel Series™, the law stipulated that a depiction of Monticello return to the nickel after two years, in 2006. The obverse continued to bear the likeness of President Jefferson, although using two new profiles for the 2005 and 2006 nickels. The two commemorative reverses issued for 2004 are the Louisiana Purchase design adopted from a historic Jefferson Peace Medal, and the Keelboat design which features a side view of a the keelboat that transported members of the Lewis & Clark expedition through the rivers of the Louisiana Territory in search of a northwest passage to the Pacific Ocean.

Original packaging: The 2004-PD Mint Set consisted of two different sets in two envelopes. One envelope contains coins from the Philadelphia Mint, the second contains coins from the Denver Mint. Each envelope contains two Mylar® packages, the first containing the Cent, Nickels, Dime, Half Dollar, and Dollar. The second contains the following five 2004 Quarters from the 50 State Quarters® program: Michigan, Florida, Texas, Iowa, and Wisconsin. The pack containing the D-Mint coins was edged in red, the pack containing the D-Mint Quarters was edged in black, the pack containing the P-Mint coins was edged in blue, and the pack containing the P-Mint Quarters was edged in white. The two P-Mint packs were placed in a blue envelope; the D-Mint packs in a red envelope. Both envelopes showcase the variety of coin designs within the set—including the Westward Journey Nickels.
