Most will agree the finest Uncirculated coins released by the US Mint are in the Official Uncirculated Set – The “Mint Set”. What makes the sets so popular is they contain each year’s coins for every denomination issued from each mint … the Cent through the Half Dollar, and today the Dollar. Since 1959 the Sets have been sealed in protective plastic envelopes. Over the past half-century they have been one of the US Mint most popular collector items. In our opinion there are 6 sets that should never be over looked … we call them the “loaded 6” … let me tell you why

#1 - 1978 | The 1978 set contains 12 coin. Why is it special … it has the “Large Sized Dollar” – the Eisenhower Dollar. These two dollars alone are selling nationally for $11.50 ( D Mint ) and $12.25 ( P Mint )

#2 - 1979 | The 1979 Set also contains 12 coins. This set stands out because it is the 1st set in US history to contain a “mini dollar” – the Susan B Anthony. These P & D dollars are selling for $7.50 each

#3 - 1987 | The 1987 set contains 12 coins. It is special for one reason … the US Mint didn’t release the Kennedy Half Dollar into circulation in 1987. It was ONLY available in the Mint Set. These Keys are selling for $9.95 ( D Mint ) and $10.75 ( P Mint )

#4 - 1996 | The 1996 set contains 13 coins. And the Lucky 13th is what makes this set special. 1996 is the 50th Anniversary of the Roosevelt Dime and to make the set special the US Mint released its 1st and only West Point issue in Uncirculated Condition. This “W” dime is the rarest uncirculated dime in the entire series … and ONLY available in this set. Good luck finding one … none of our competitors have it for sale

#5 - 2000 | The 2000 set contains 20 coins. 10 of the coins are the P & D State Quarters from the 2nd year of issue in the series. The 2 coins worth mentioning are the 1st Golden Dollars issued by the US Mint .. the Sacagawea’s. These golden dollars are one of today’s most popular collectibles. The P & D Mints are selling for $5 each

#6 - 2005 | The 2005 set contains 20 coins. Half of the set is the P & D State Quarters from the 6th year of issue, it also contains the P & D Golden Dollars … but it is special because the US Mint made it special … The 2005 Set is the 1st US Mint Set to be made with a special Satin Finish … all 20 of the coins. 1st are always 1st's … and a significant change is always worth noting

Value … BIG Value
The details define the set(s) and helps reinforce our decisions … the Value on these 6 make it even easier. The 6 sets above contain 89 Uncirculated coins. I reference what our competition is selling just 8 of the coins for $69.45 … and we couldn't find a comparison for the rarest coin ... the 96 W Dime. We did find all 6 sets ( all still in the original US Mint displays ) for $148 on one site and over $170 on another … we have them for less than HALF !!!! … less than $11.70 a set … Only $69.95 … while they last
