Coins - 2003 Mint Set -
The 2003 mint set included two informational inserts about the uncirculated coins and two re-order cards
for ordering more 2003 mint sets. One of each insert was placed in the separate envelope for each mint.
The front of both inserts in the 2003 mint set reflected a simple design of red on white for
Denver and blue on white for Philadelphia. Each front contained a background image of the iconic eagle with arrows
in one set of talons and an olive branch in the other.
The insert for Denver demonstrates the design with its red border, red printing and red
iconic eagle. The Philadelphia insert is similar except it is blue in color.
Inside each 2003 insert, the US Mint discussed the ten coins from that particular mint
Both inserts, one for Denver and one for Philadelphia, included the same information except for
references to Denver or Philadelphia.
For simplicity, only pictures of the Denver insert are included.
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 included Illionois,
Alabama, Maine, Missouri and Arkansas.
The back of the folded insert shows the coin specifications for the cent, nickel, dime, half dollar and
dollar uncirculated coins.
For the 2003 mint set, the US Mint included two re-order cards - a red-printed card in the Denver
envelope and a blue-printed card with the Philadelphia uncirculated coins.
On the opposite 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.
