The 2010 United States Mint Uncirculated Set will be released on July 15, 2010. The set includes 28 different coins produced at the Philadelphia and Denver Mints. Each coin features a special satin finish that the US Mint uses for this annual set and other special sets.
The 2010 Mint Set includes the debut of a new reverse design for the Lincoln Cent featuring the Union Shield. Thirteen vertical stripes are bound by a single horizontal bar to represent the thirteen original states joined together in a compact union in support of the federal government. This design was chosen to be emblematic of Lincoln’s preservation of the union.
The set also includes a new reverse design for the 2010 Native American Dollar features the Hiawatha Belt encircling a bundle of five arrows. This is a visual representation of the Haudenosaunee, or Iroquois Confederacy. The dollar series presents a different reverse design each year, featuring contributions and accomplishments of Native Americans.
The final highlight will be the debut of the first coins in the America the Beautiful Quarters series. National Parks or other National Sites are featured for each of the 50 states, 5 US territories, and the District of Columbia in the order federally designated.
