The United States Mint is now selling the Youth Coin and Currency Set. The set went on sale yesterday and is a unique way to get children excited about coin collecting.
The $29.95 set will feature all five of the 2019 America The Beautiful Quarter coins released in 2009 along with a $2 Federal Reserve note. The set will come in a fun tri-fold holder featuring the characters from the Mighty Minters.
The 2019 Youth Coin and Currency Set contains a tri-fold presentation folder with an outer sleeve. It is the third of three new youth-oriented products the United States Mint is offering in 2019 featuring the new Mighty Minters™ characters—Timothy, Lina, Alex, Eli, and Layla. These are fun, diverse, and relatable ambassadors to children, parents, and gift-givers. Each character projects its own style while introducing a variety of new Mint products to kids.United States Mint
As a reminder, the 2019 ATB Quarters are as follows:
- Lowell National Historical Park in Massachusetts
- American Memorial Park in the Northern Mariana Islands
- War in the Pacific National Historical Park in Guam
- San Antonio Missions National Historical Park in Texas
- Frank Church River of No Return Wilderness in Idaho.
Sales of this new youth focused offering will start on Halloween, October 31st at Noon Eastern. These sets are limited, with a production of just 25,000. Further, there is a household limit of 1 set. Combining these factors, if you are thinking of getting one for a child in your life, it is best to get on the Mint’s site as quickly as possible to assure you get one. I would encourage readers to use the “Remind me” feature on the Mint’s site to get an email or text message reminder of when they go on sale.
