2021 U.S. Mint Uncirculated Set Designs
The 2021 Uncirculated Set includes two Lincoln Cents, two Jefferson Nickels, two Roosevelt Dimes, two Kennedy Half Dollars, two 2021 Native American Dollars, two of the 56th and final America the Beautiful Quarters, and a notable addition this year, two 2021 Quarters featuring General George Washington Crossing the Delaware. Seven coins will be struck at the Denver Mint and will bear their D mint mark, and 7 will be struck at the Philadelphia Mint, all except for the Lincoln Cent will bear the "P" mint mark. The coins will arrive packaged in two mint specific themed folders.
The Lincoln Cent, the Jefferson Nickel, the Roosevelt Dime, the Washington Quarter, the Kennedy Half Dollar, and the Sacagawea Dollar have all historically born portraits of the person for whom they are named on the obverse. Sacagawea’s portrait also includes her son, Jean-Baptiste, whom she holds on her back. The reverses of the cent, nickel, dime, and half dollar bear the Lincoln Memorial, Monticello, a torch between two branches, and an adapted version of the Presidential Seal, respectively.
One of the quarters included in the 2021 Uncirculated set is the 56th and final issue in the America the Beautiful series. Alabama’s entry honors Tuskegee Airmen National Historic Site. Two P-51 mustangs fly overhead as an airman puts on his flight cap in the foreground. The second quarter features a design that shows General George Washington crossing the Delaware River. Following tradition, the Sacagawea Dollar will bear a design that honors Native Americans. The 2021 edition will carry a one-year-only design celebrating their contributions to the U.S. military.
