2009-PD Mint Set
About the sets: The coins in the 2009-PD Mint Sets were Uncirculated pieces pulled from regular production runs, thus the quality of the individual coins varies widely from set to set and even within a set.
The 2009-PD Mint Set contained thirty-six coins, including the following:
|2009-PD Mint Set||Cent||Nickel||Dime||Quarter||Half Dollar||One Dollar|
One example of each of the following from the Philadelphia and Denver Mints: District of Columbia Quarter, Puerto Rico Quarter, Guam Quarter, American Samoa Quarter, U.S. Virgin Islands Quarter, and Northern Mariana Islands Quarter (all Copper-Nickel Clad). The four Presidential Dollars are William Henry Harrison, John Tyler, James K. Polk, and Zachary Taylor (Copper-Nickel Clad). The Native American Dollars contained within this set commemorate the spread of Three Sisters Agriculture around 1000 A.D. and feature a Native American woman planting seeds in a field of corn, beans and squash. The obverse retains the Sacagawea portrait from the previous Golden Dollar program.
Mintage: 643,897 sets
About the sets: Featuring an impressive array of 36 coins, the 2009-PD Mint Set was the largest Mint Set ever released to date. It is notable for inclusion of the "District of Columbia and U.S. Territories" Quarters - an 11th year addition to the original ten-year 50 State Quarters program. The set is also highly collectible due to the fact that it includes four one-year-only design Lincoln Cents, issued to mark the centennial of the 1909 Lincoln Cent. It is also collectible for its inclusion of the first coins in the newly-launched Native American Dollar series.
Original packaging: The 2009-PD Mint Set consisted of two different sets in two blister-style folders. The blue folder contains coins from the Philadelphia Mint, the red folder contains coins from the Denver Mint. Each folder contains the Cents, Nickels, Dime, Half Dollar, and Dollar, alongside the following six 2009 Quarters: District of Columbia, Puerto Rico, Guam, American Samoa, U.S. Virgin Islands, and Northern Mariana Islands. Completing each folder are the four 2009 Presidential Dollars: Harrison, Tyler, Polk, Taylor.
