About this Product Full Product Name
The United States Mint released the 1st official "Uncirculated" Mint set in 1947. It was introduced to give coin collectors the opportunity to acquire ALL denominations and mints that were released into circulation per year, per coinage issue. Unlike the Proof Sets, these are normal coins intended for circulation. The "Official" packaging is the United States Mint's stamp of authenticity as to the condition of the coins.

This 1970 United States Mint set is the 12th year of issue. It includes 10 coins, consisting of the nickel, dime, quarter struck at the Philadelphia and Denver Mints, the cent was struck at San Francisco, Philadelphia and Denver Mints with the half dollar struck only at the Denver Mint.

The 1970 set ranks #35 in mintage, with 2,038,134 struck.

Uncirculated sets sold by the US Mint from 1947 to 1958 contained two examples of each regular issue coin. These were packaged in cardboard holders that did not have a protective seal over the coins. Since 1959 the sets have been sealed in a protective plastic envelope. No official US Mint sets were issued in 1950, 1982 and 1983.
