Official US Mint Uncirculated Sets
Many will say the recent surge in coin collecting was due to the 50 State Quarter program ... but when did it become an issue that the US Mint took official notice? The answer is when they started to formally package coins for the public, and for Uncirculated coins that was over 60 years ago - in 1947.

Official Set History
Official Uncirculated Mint Sets are specifically packaged by the Mint for collectors. They were originally designed to contain an uncirculated example of each year’s coins that were released into circulation from every mint that issued the coin. For the 1st decade (1947 - 1958) the set included 2 examples of each regular-issue coin, presented in cardboard holders. Since 1959 sets have been sealed in protective plastic envelopes with only 1 example of each coin. The US Mint did not issue Uncirculated sets in 1982 and 1983 and resumed in 1984 with a NEW 4-color outer envelope that changed each year. Unfortunately, the US Mint hasn’t followed the rules over the past 40 years, making many of these sets even more valuable.

When it comes to building a mint set collection, these sets are simply a must have! Each of these United States Mint Sets comes with its own unique envelope design and color. The years included in this first decade are as follows:

1984 / 1985 / 1986 / 1987 / 1988 / 1989 / 1990 / 1991 / 1992 / 1993

This collection of U.S. Mint Sets is also very important to collectors because it contains the hard to find 1987 Mint Set, with the Philadelphia and Denver Kennedy Half Dollars that were only available in these sets! That means that thousands upon thousands of 1987 Mint Sets were broken just so they could get their hands on these ‘Secret’ Kennedy’s!
