Product Description

The set, which marks the United States Mint’s 220th anniversary and the Bureau of Engraving and Printing’s 150th anniversary, includes one 2012 American Eagle Silver Proof Coin and one Series 2009 $5 note. The 2012 American Eagle Silver Proof Coin honors the artistry and design of our Nation’s coins and the heritage of coin production at the United States Mint at San Francisco. The coin’s obverse (heads side) features a modern rendition of sculptor Adolph Weinman’s “Walking Liberty” design, originally prepared for the circulating half-dollar in 1916. The coin’s reverse (tails side), by former United States Mint Sculptor-Engraver John Mercanti, features a design reminiscent of the heraldic eagle as it appeared on earlier coins. It bears the “S” mint mark, representing its minting at the United States Mint at San Francisco. The Series 2009 $5 note commemorates the Bureau of Engraving and Printing’s century-and-a-half of service with a serial number beginning with “150.” It bears the signatures of Secretary of the Treasury Timothy Geithner and Treasurer of the United States Rosie Rios, and the San Francisco Federal Reserve Bank designation. The face of the Series 2009 $5 note features the portrait of President Lincoln engraved in 1998 by William Fleishell III and Thomas Hipschen. The back of the note features a vignette of the east fa├žade of the Lincoln Memorial, also engraved by Hipschen in 1998.
