As a current coin collector, or someone looking to start your collection, US Mint Sets are just what you should be checking out. How else can you simply and cost-effectively purchase coins that are in brilliant uncirculated condition and are specimens of each of the coins used in circulation in a given year?

Twelve uncirculated coins in 2 separate packages make up this US Mint Set. One package, identifiable by its red edging, is from the Denver Mint, containing 6 coins. It includes one each of the Lincoln Cent, Jefferson Nickel, Roosevelt Dime, Washington Quarter, Kennedy Half Dollar, and Eisenhower Dollar. The other package, identifiable by its blue edging, is from the Philadelphia Mint, containing 6 coins. It also includes one each of the Lincoln Cent, Jefferson Nickel, Roosevelt Dime, Washington Quarter, Kennedy Half Dollar, and Eisenhower Dollar. The cent, nickel, and dime in each package are dated 1975, while the quarter, half dollar, and dollar in each package are dated 1776-1976.
There is a uniqueness to the 1975 Mint Set, setting it apart from all of the other annual Mint Sets. With the Bicentennial right around the corner, the US Mint decided not to produce the 1975 dated quarters, half dollars, and dollar coins. Anticipating an increased demand for these particular denominations, the Mint opted to instead begin production of the 1776-1976 Bicentennial coins in 1975 and include them in the 1975 Mint Sets.
In this Mint Set, the Bicentennial Eisenhower Dollar that is included is the Type 1 version, which means it has thicker lettering on the reverse. The Washington Quarter, Kennedy Half Dollar, and Eisenhower Dollar in the sets are the Bicentennial versions, meaning they feature new reverse designs and are dual-dated. Each of these new reverse designs was the result of an open to the public design competition run by the US Mint.
