On September 28, 2021, the United States Mint began selling the 2021 Uncirculated Coin set (Buy on eBay), which had no mintage, product or household order limit.
The set saw a reduction of 6 coins to 14 total (7 from the Philadelphia Mint housed in a blue folder and 7 from the Denver Mint housed in a red folder) compared to 20 or more in recent mint sets because only two quarter dollars were produced in 2021, including the very last coin in the America the Beautiful series that began in 2020. That coin is the 2021 Tuskegee Airmen National Historic quarter whose reverse design depicts a Tuskegee Airman pilot suiting up to join the fight during World War II, with the Moton Field control tower in the background. The pilot looks upward with pride and confidence as two P- 51 Mustangs pass overhead.
The other quarter is the 2021 General George Washington Crossing the Delaware quarter featuring an obverse design that marks a return to the familiar depiction of George Washington by John Flanagan as it appeared on the quarter from 1932 to 1998. The reverse design features George Washington commanding his troops through the overnight crossing of the ice-choked Delaware River prior to the Battle of Trenton during the American Revolutionary War.
The set also included the 2021 Native American $1 Coin with a reverse design honoring Native American military service. It features two eagle feathers, which were traditionally earned in battle or by performing a brave deed. Eagle feathers are revered, receiving the utmost care and handling, and are to be displayed proudly in homes. Stars representing five branches of the U.S. Military are in the foreground. A circle connects all the elements.
Finally, the sets also included the 2021 Kennedy half dollar, Roosevelt dime, Jefferson nickel and Lincoln cent.
These sets were still available at the time of writing with cumulative sales through July 2022 of 207,444.
