Coins - 1998 Mint Set - larger images

The informational insert in the 1998 mint set described each of the five uncirculated coins and introduced the state quarter program which would begin the following year.

The front of the 1998 mint set's insert shows both the Washington obverse and the heraldic eagle reverse of the quarter dollar coin. At the bottom, the text reminds the collector, "This collector's set includes two 1998 Washington Quarter Dollars. This is the last time the heraldic eagle reverse will appear until at least 2009!"

Before discussing each uncirculated coin in the 1998 mint set, the US Mint describes how coins provide insights into our nation's history. Coin collecting provides tangible evidence of that history.

After completing the description of each coin, the text provides historical comments about the early mint which began in April 1792. Not having a lot of raw materials at that time, it's said that George Washington contributed household silver for the early silver coins.

The back of the insert in the 1998 mint set lists further "Did You Know" facts about the US Mint, the processes and the coins, both historical and current. At the bottom, the insert includes the US Mint's seal along with contact information. The 1998 mint set included the first informational insert to show the US Mint's web site address.

Organized and presented similar to previous years, the coin specifications were placed on the back of the mint set's envelope. The grid identifies the coin specifications for each of the five uncirculated coins in the mint set. Each coin's characteristics include the metal composition, the weight and the size in addition to the designs and the artists for the obverse and reverse of the coin.
