GIFTS FOR A BRIGHT AND SHINING FUTURE
Looking for that perfect gift? The United States Mint offers a variety of numismatic treasures to celebrate the achievements of your friends and family! Decades from now, they will remember this moment clearly as they hold this gift in their hand. We offer a wide variety of gifts for anyone you know—from the seasoned coin collector, to the freshly minted graduates who receive their very first gift from the U.S. Mint—there’s something for everyone!
For the stellar graduate in your life, consider the U.S. Mint American Eagle Proof Coins available in silver or gold. American Eagle Coins are genuine classics and thoughtful gifts for your friends and family. The obverse (heads) of the silver coin was designed by Adolph A. Weinman and features the famous Walking Liberty design, one of the most popular designs ever featured on an American coin. The obverse of the gold coin is a rendition of renowned sculptor Augustus Saint–Gaudens’ original stunning design. Weinman and Saint–Gaudens helped define a generation of coin designers by adding more distinctively American historical elements into the national iconography. Any scholar would appreciate an American Eagle Proof Coin.
Products in the America the Beautiful Quarters® Program are perfect for your nature–loving graduates. Each quarter’s reverse (tails) design honors one of our Nation’s beautiful and historic national parks or sites—one in each State, the District of Columbia, and five U.S. territories. The first quarter of 2017 highlights Iowa’s Effigy Mounds National Monument burial grounds, an ancient place of great significance to American Indian culture dating back more than 2,500 years. Act now and get an America the Beautiful Five Ounce Silver Uncirculated Coin™ featuring the Effigy Mounds National Monument quarter design or an America the Beautiful Quarters Silver Proof Set. See what other national sites are being honored.
Congratulate an honor student with a special keepsake from the U.S. Mint. Inspire them with this year’s Boys Town or Lions Clubs International Commemorative Coins, whose designs tell rich stories of service to humanity. Both organizations are celebrating their centennial anniversaries in 2017, and each program offers several different gift options. Perhaps your graduate has been inspired by former Presidents such as Barack Obama or Ronald Reagan. If so, bronze medals honoring a variety of people and historic moments may be the perfect choice. No matter who you’re buying for, there’s something for everyone here at the U.S. Mint. Start memories that will last a lifetime!
