Why Add This 2022 U.S. Mint Set to Your Collection?
While the United States of America declared independence in 1776, our nation actually didn’t have its own Mint until 1792. Today, the U.S. Mint produces an incredible number of coins each year. These range from the circulating coins in our change to precious metal coins like the American Silver Eagle. The set offered here is a 2022 U.S. Mint Set. Sets like this one include specimens of the year’s circulating coins from the Philadelphia and Denver Mints as well as coins that aren’t so actively circulating such as the Kennedy half and Native American dollar. This set also notably includes the first five issues of the American Women Quarter series!
- The twenty coins in this set have a clad composition.
- The 10 coins from Denver and 10 coins from Philadelphia are in separate lenses.
- These are uncirculated 2022 coins that feature a Brilliant Uncirculated finish.
Designs of 2022 U.S. Coins
Obverse: The designs on the obverse of each coin vary widely because of the full range of denominations in this set. Major figures from United States history are depicted here, such as John F. Kennedy, Sacagawea, and George Washington. The portrait of George Washington that appears on the obverse of the American Women Quarters has notably been updated to a design created by the renowned sculptor, Laura Gardin Fraser. The date can be found on this side of each coin.
Reverse: There is an even greater variety of designs on the reverse. This is mainly because of the included American Women quarters. The 2022 American Women designs include Maya Angelou, Dr. Sally Ride, Wilma Mankiller, Nina Otero-Warren, and Anna May Wong. The Sacagawea dollar in this set features a one year only design that honors Ely S. Parker of the Tonawanda Seneca, who served as military secretary to General Ulysses S. Grant during the Civil War. The reverse designs of the penny, nickel, dime, and Kennedy half dollar will all be familiar to collectors.
