The Birth Set is a precious memento to mark the arrival of a newborn baby in 2013. Issued by the United States Mint, we have filled it with 2013-dated proof coins from San Francisco. Each Birth Set includes a proof Kennedy half-dollar, the first America the Beautiful Quarter® released for the year, a Roosevelt dime, a Jefferson nickel, and a Lincoln penny, each bearing the “S” mint mark of the United States Mint at San Francisco.
Included are spaces for a welcome message and the day/time of the birth and length/weight of the baby, a baby photograph and a lock of the baby’s hair.
The photo frame holds a 3” x 4” photograph (not included).
You spoke, we listened! The 2013 Birth Set also includes new improvements suggested by our customers.
The Certificate of Authenticity has been relocated to the back of the folder, and the coin specifications have been moved to the sleeve of the product. We have also added another teddy bear image to the folder.
This is the second year the Birth Set has been issued by the United States Mint.
United States Mint proof coins feature sharp relief and a mirror-like background. Their frosted, sculpted foregrounds give them a special cameo effect. Proof blanks are specially treated, polished and cleaned to ensure high quality strikes. The blanks are then fed into presses fitted with specially polished dies and struck at least twice to ensure sharp relief.
