The designs features Mary Golda Ross writing calculations, while 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.” The obverse design (heads) retains the central figure Sacagawea carrying her infant son, Jean Baptiste. The inscriptions are “LIBERTY” and “IN GOD WE TRUST.” The set also one Kennedy half dollar, Roosevelt dime, Jefferson nickel and Lincoln penny.

United States Mint uncirculated coins are struck on special presses using greater force than circulating coins, producing a sharp, intricately detailed image.

New this year! Premium Coin: The 2019 Uncirculated Coin Set is accompanied by an additional, special edition 2019 Lincoln penny with an uncirculated finish struck at the West Point Mint with a “W” mint mark. This special coin is packaged separately in clear United States Mint plastic wrap.

Sets can be ordered from the United States Mint online at www.usmint.gov or by calling 1-800-USA-MINT.

We will be sure to keep an eye on the sales totals of these new sets in the coming weeks and months in our weekly Mint Statistics feature to see how sales compare to the previous four years. In case you don’t have those figures handy: 2018 set – 247,052 (so far), 2017 set – 286,813, 2016 set – 296,582 and 2015 set – 314,029. We see slight decreases each year, but perhaps with the bonus 2019 “W” penny, collectors will show added interest.
