Today, the United States Mint will begin sales of their first product for the new year. The Birth Set 2020 Proof set will be available directly from the Mint’s site starting at Noon Eastern, 9:00 AM Pacific. The 5-coin Set is priced at $19.95 and can be found here.
The Birth Set 2020 comes with a Proof coin with the 2020 Mint Mark to commemorate the birth of a child in the year. The sets, as you can guess, will be available throughout the year. The set will come with the following coins:
- 2020-S Lincoln Cent
- 2020-S Jefferson Nickel
- 2020-S Roosevelt Dime
- 2020-S American Samoa Quarter (America the Beautiful Series)
- 2020-S Kennedy Half Dollar
The presentation folder includes space to provide your personalized message and a place for the baby’s vital statistics—the date and time of birth, length, and weight. There is also a photo frame area to hold a 3” x 5” photo. A Certificate of Authenticity is located on the back of the folder, and coin specifications are printed on the sleeve.
As you would expect for a product that will be available throughout 2020, the Birth Set has no production limit, no purchase limit, and no household limit. It is a great way to mark the birth of a child, grandchild, godchild or other significant birth.
This is the ninth year that the United States Mint has produced the Birth Set but it is not a huge seller. As of the November 3, 2019 Sales Report, the last public report made available, just over 21,000 of the Birth Set 2019 sets had been sold.
