Coins - 2000 Mint Set -
The 2000 mint set included two informational inserts about the uncirculated coins and two re-order cards
for ordering more 2000 mint sets. One of each insert was placed in the envelope for each mint.
The front of both inserts in the 2000 mint set closely copied the design on the front of the envelopes.
The insert for Philadelphia demonstrates the front design. The Denver insert is similar except it is red in
color and had "Denver" in the last zero of the year.
Inside each insert, the US Mint discussed the new, first-time-ever Sacagawea golden dollars and
listed the new five state quarters in the 2000 mint set.
Both inserts, this one for Philadelphia and the other one for Denver, included the same information
except for references to Philadelphia or Denver. See the third line from the top which reads "Uncirculated
Versions of All U.S. Legal Tender Coins from the Philadelphia Mint."
The bottom section inside the insert identifies the specifications for the five new state quarter uncirculated
coins including their designs, artists, metal composition, weight and size. The quarters were for Massachusetts,
Maryland, South Carolina, New Hampshire and Virginia.
The back of the folded insert shows the coin specifications for the cent, nickel, dime, half dollar and
dollar uncirculated coins. Note the details of the new Sacagawea golden dollar on the right.
For the 2000 mint set, the US Mint added a re-order card - a blue-printed card in the Philadelphia envelope
and a red-printed card with the Denver uncirculated coins.
On the other side of the card, the US Mint suggested additional uncirculated coin sets as gifts for family and
friends with their instructions for placing the order.
