The Birth Set is a precious memento to mark the arrival of a newborn baby in 2014. Issued by the United States Mint, we have filled it with 2014-dated proof quality coins from San Francisco. Each Birth Set includes a proof Kennedy half-dollar, the first America the Beautiful Quarter® released for the year (Great Smoky Mountains National Park in Tennessee), 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 baby’s 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).
A Certificate of Authenticity is located on the back of the folder and coin specifications are on the sleeve of the product.
This is the third 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.
