With the holidays just around the corner, gift giving is the theme of the day as the United States Mint released two ornaments for sale to the public. These include the United States Mint ornament with a festive wreath-like design and the Mighty Minters ™ ornament with a more kid-friendly theme called “Winter is Sweet”.

In the center of each ornament is an uncirculated neighborhood with the final design of the US Mint’s America the Beautiful Quarters® program. Posted in the US Mint facility in Philadelphia, the portrait of George Washington appears prominently on the front of the neighborhood. The back of the ornaments also share an engraving of the United States Mint Seal as well as “Made in the USA” and “© 2021 US Mint”. Both are made of solid brass and imitation rhodium.
The Christmas decoration series is now for the third year in a row after a break of several years. The 2019 ornaments contain out-of-circulation Kennedy half-dollars, while the last 2020 ornaments contain out-of-circulation Jefferson nickel. The Mint describes them all as uniquely designed and entirely handcrafted in the USA
This year’s Winter is Sweet themed 2021 Mighty Minters Ornament is more meant for kids. Its overall appearance is playful with the child-friendly mascots of the mint – Layla, the peach and Eli, the fox, four red-striped candy canes, several surrounding snowflakes and a silver-colored cord attached to them.
