The coin is in the center of Layla, Lina, and Kendra, and lit by a neighborhood streetlight with new-fallen snow.
Priced at $27.95 USD, 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 “©2022 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 the Mighty Minters featured on the ornament, along with the signature of Mint Director Ventris C. Gibson.
