United States Mint Holiday Ornaments Mighty Minters On Sale October 21
2021, October 21

US Mint - The United States Mint (Mint) will begin accepting orders for the 2021 editions of the Mighty Minters™ Ornament and the United States Mint Ornament on October 21 at noon EDT. Orders for both products are limited to 15 units per household for the first 24 hours of sales.

Crafted in solid brass and imitation rhodium, both ornaments feature the final coin in the America the Beautiful Quarters® Program with the familiar George Washington obverse (heads) design visible. "2021," "UNITED STATES OF AMERICA," "LIBERTY," and "IN GOD WE TRUST" appear on the obverse (heads) of the quarter, which has an uncirculated finish. Additional details are below.

Mighty Minters™ Ornament
This year, the ornament has a "Winter is Sweet" theme and highlights Mighty Minters Layla, a peahen, and Eli the fox, the Mint's coin-collecting ambassadors. The America the Beautiful Quarters coin is centered between the Mighty Minters and two red and white candy canes. Priced at $27.95, this delightful ornament is perfect for gift-giving and will appeal to children and adults alike. The United States Mint Seal is engraved on the back of the ornament, along with "Made in the U.S.A." and "©2021 U.S. Mint." A silver-colored cord is attached.



The Mighty Minters™ Ornament has festive red packaging that replicates the ornament design on the front. The back of the packaging lists descriptive information about the coin and Mighty Minters™ Layla and Eli, along with the Mint Director's signature.

2021 United States Mint Ornament
This year's ornament has a festive wreath-like design with a brilliant holly motif enhanced by two deer silhouettes on each side. The intricate and reflective holly design includes berries shaded in red and a stylized red ring that encircles the quarter. An engraved version of the United States Mint Seal is on the back of the ornament, along with "MADE IN THE U.S.A." and "©2021 U.S. Mint." This one-of-a kind ornament is suspended from a red ribbon and is priced at $29.95.



The United States Mint Ornament is displayed in a beautiful green box and includes a Certificate of Authenticity with information about the coin and the ornament. The United States Mint Seal and the words "2021 United States Mint Ornament" are hot stamped in silver foil on the top of the lid.

Tempted, especially since "my" ornaments tend to not get used. I have been told they are too old and dated. Perhaps something new.

More crapola coming out of the Mint when they can't even keep up with current production and shipping.

Now the listing shows "The obverse (heads) of the quarter appears on the front of the ornament, with an engraved version of the official United States Mint Seal on the back."
Does that mean that the obverse is a quarter and the reverse is a new back or just glued a quarter to the official mint seal back....

coincollector123; my initial thoughts also. I had first thought that the reverse view was of the same quarter pictured on the 'face' of the ornament, but after reading the fine print, the ornament is made of TWO pieces; a real Alabama quarter and a token with the Mint logo on it.

If it was actually a 'one piece' quarter, with a 'special' reverse, I would have bought one. Also, the 'adult' ornament is (I think) $2 more than the kids ornament. Weird.
