2007 Uncirculated Mint Set
Starting with the 2007 Mint Set (Buy on eBay), the United States Mint significantly altered the packaging for the popular annual collector product. This was done to coincide with the launch of the Presidential Dollars series, which had the impact of boosting the number of coins per set to 28, compared to 20 coins in the previous year.
Sales began rather late in the year on October 9, 2007. The fact that the sets were the first to include the uncirculated versions of the first four releases of the Presidential $1 Coin Program was highlighted. The Presidents depicted were George Washington, John Adams, Thomas Jefferson, and James Madison. Their portraits appeared on the obverse of each coin with a common portrayal of the Statue of Liberty on the reverse. The coin series featured incused edge lettering, which contained the date, mint mark, and the mottoes “E Pluribus Unum” and “In God We Trust”.
The 2007 Mint Sets also included the next five designs released for the State Quarters Program, featuring Montana, Washington, Idaho, Wyoming, and Utah. The remaining coins were the Lincoln Cent, Jefferson Nickel, Roosevelt Dime, Kennedy Half Dollar, and Sacagawea Dollar. All coins continued to utilize the satin finish, which had been introduced for the annual set in 2005. Around this time, the US Mint began to refer to the satin finish versions as “uncirculated versions”.
The original issue price for the 2007 Mint Set was $22.95, reflecting an increase of $6 per set. Meanwhile, the face value of the coins included in each set had increased by $8.
The sets were now packaged in two separate blister pack folders. The outer flap included illustrations of the Denver and Philadelphia skylines. Folders opened to reveal 14 coins from each mint, sealed in individual blisters which allowed both sides of the coins, as well as the edges to be seen. The back side of the flap included coin specification information and a certification of authenticity.
