2012 150th Anniversary NGC & PMG Two-Piece Coin & Currency Set

This year marks the 150th anniversary of BEP and the 220th anniversary of the United States Mint. As the Nation's producers of currency and coins, and two of the last manufacturing organizations in the federal government, BEP and the United States Mint have made American history by connecting Americans through coins and currency for a collective 370 years.

To commemorate their anniversaries, the bureaus are offering a 2012 Making American History Coin and Currency Set. This anniversary set includes one 2012 American Eagle Silver Proof Coin and one Series 2009 $5 note. The 2012 American Eagle Silver Proof Coin bears the "S" mint mark and honors the artistry and design of the Nation's coins and the heritage of coin production at the United States Mint at San Francisco. The Series 2009 $5 note commemorates the BEP's century-and a-half of service with a serial number beginning with "150."
