These complete sets of U.S. Mint coins feature uncirculated specimens in every domination for the year of issue. Each unique set represents coins minted for regular commerce by the U.S. Mint. Collectors can be assured that these coins will arrive sealed in the original U.S. Mint packaging.
The U.S. Mint began offering uncirculated mint sets for sale to collectors over 60 years ago. The number of uncirculated “business strike” coins included in each set varies from year to year. In certain years, uncirculated U.S. Mint sets contained coins that were only produced to fill these U.S. Mint sets and were not released for commerce. These select sets can offer a high value to the owner because of their quality and investment demand.
This 1961 uncirculated U.S. Mint set includes 10 coins:
• 2 Lincoln cents
• 2 Jefferson nickels
• 2 Roosevelt dimes
• 2 Washington quarter dollars
• 2 Franklin half dollars
