Coins - 2001 Mint Set -
The 2001 mint set included two informational inserts about the uncirculated coins and two re-order cards
for ordering more 2001 mint sets. One of each insert was placed in the envelope for each mint.
The front of both inserts in the 2001 mint set reflected the design on the front of the envelopes with
pictures of the particular mints in the background.
The insert for Denver demonstrates the design with its red color and images of the ten coins.
The Philadelphia insert is similar except it is blue in color and has an image of the Philadelphia mint
in the background.
Inside each 2001 insert, the US Mint discussed the ten coins from that particular mint
Both inserts, one for Philadelphia and one for Denver, included the same information except for
references to Philadelphia or Denver.
For simplicity, only the Denver insert is included. See the third line from the top which
reads "Uncirculated Versions of All U.S. Legal Tender Coins from the Denver 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 New York, North
Carolina, Rhode Island, Vermont and Kentucky.
The back of the folded insert shows the coin specifications for the cent, nickel, dime, half dollar and
dollar uncirculated coins.
For the 2001 mint set, the US Mint added two re-order cards - 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.
