About the sets: The 2005-PD Mint Set continues the second year of the Westward Journey Nickel Series™ with two Jefferson Nickels issued in commemoration of the Louisiana Purchase and Lewis and Clark's expedition. The obverse bears a newly-designed, one-year-only portrait of President Jefferson, officially entitled: "President Jefferson with Handwritten Liberty". The two commemorative reverses issued for 2005 are an American Bison design reminiscent of the classic Buffalo Nickel, and a design of the Oregon coastline bearing the legend: "Ocean in view! O! The joy!". The inscription reflects an excited entry in the journal of Captain William Clark on November 7, 1805 as the expedition finally reached their goal of the Pacific Ocean.

Original packaging: The 2005-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 2005 Quarters from the 50 State Quarters® program: California, Minnesota, Oregon, Kansas, and West Virginia. 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 depict Betsy Ross at work on the original flag for our Founding Fathers.
