The 2019 United States Mint Explore and Discover Coin Set™ contains a coin folder and activity book in one outer sleeve. It is the second of three new youth-oriented products the United States Mint is offering in 2019 featuring the new Mighty Minters™ characters—Kendra, Timothy, Sophie, 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.
The coin folder contains six coins from the San Francisco and Denver Mints and a penny planchet (coin blank). The set also includes a Mighty Minter magnifying glass to help kids see the distinctive design elements on each coin. The set includes these 2019-dated coins:
- One quarter from the America the Beautiful Quarters® Program honoring Lowell National Historical Park in Massachusetts. The reverse (tails) design depicts a mill girl working at a power loom with its prominent circular bobbin battery. A view of Lowell, including the Boott Mill clock tower is seen through the window. Inscriptions include "LOWELL," "MASSACHUSETTS," "2019," and "E PLURIBUS UNUM."
- One Native American $1 Coin with a reverse design featuring Mary Golda Ross writing calculations. Behind her, an Atlas-Agena rocket launches into space, with an equation inscribed in its cloud. An astronaut, symbolic of Native American astronauts, including John Herrington, spacewalks above. In the field behind, a group of stars indicates outer space. Inscriptions are “UNITED STATES OF AMERICA” and "$1."
- One Kennedy half dollar
- One Roosevelt dime
- One Jefferson nickel
- One Lincoln penny
The folder has four quarter-sized openings for kids to collect the other four America the Beautiful Quarters released in 2019. The three proof coins (quarter, dollar, half dollar) are encapsulated, and both sides of the coins are visible in the packaging. The three uncirculated coins (penny, nickel, dime) and penny planchet are removable from the packaging and can be re-inserted multiple times so kids can closely view, examine, and handle them.
The activity book has games such as a maze and word scramble, fun facts about coins, bios of the Mighty Minters, and a step-by-step graphic of how coins are manufactured.
