Official Uncirculated Mint Sets are specially packaged by the government for sale to the collecting public. When the modern era began in 1968, the official US Mint Set release included specimens for each year's coins for every denomination issued from each US Mint.

The First Five
We've assembled a collection of sets from the first 5 years of the modern era. Each coin still in the original US Mint poly packaging and envelope as issued over 40 years ago, coins from the Philadelphia, Denver & and San Francisco Mints.

The Hidden Secret
During the first decade the US Mint issued a few coins that were only released in these Official Mint Sets. They were never released into circulation. As the years have passed, one scarce issue has become a key to the series and
this collection has it: the 1970 D Kennedy Half Dollar.

The Forgotten "S" Mint Uncirculated issues
For the last 40 years, our circulating coins have come from the Philadelphia & Denver Mints. But during this first decade, the US Mint did issue a few San Francisco Mint coins for circulation: 7 Lincoln Cents from 1968 to 1974 and 3 Jefferson Nickels from 1968 to 1970 - this five year collection has all of the issues from 1968-1972.
