Q. In marketing labeling, like a product box, what it the proper way to cite multiple patent numbers?

For example our product has been awarded 6 US patents and 1 international. We currently list the US patents and international patents on the product box as: US Patent No. x,xxx,xxx; No. v,vvv,vvv; No. t,ttt,ttt ; Tawain Patent No. Y WWWWWW
