The US Mint Sets contain specimens of each of the coins used in circulation in that particular year, and the coins are in brilliant uncirculated condition. The coins come from 2 different US Mints, and as such, each Mint’s set is packaged in their own sealed cellophane packaging. Since 1976 is America’s Bicentennial year, 3 denominations of the coins included in the 1976 Mint Sets have special commemorative reverse designs. And being the Bicentennial year, the US Mint also issued a Silver 3 Piece Mint Set. This set contains only those 3 coins with the commemorative reverse designs, and were struck in 40% silver at the San Francisco Mint. The sales of the Silver 3 Mint Set continued beyond 1976 for a couple of years, allowing it to reach sales of 4,908,319 sets. The regular 1976 Mint Set, containing 12 coins, reached sales of 1,892,513 sets. Right now, Silver.com has these 1976 US Mint Sets available for purchase online.

Mint Sets experienced a significant decrease in sales from 1972 to 1973, dropping from 2,750,000 sets in 1972 to 1,767,691 sets in 1973. This drop in sales may have been at least partially due to the jump in the original issue price, from $3.50 to $6.00. In the middle 70’s, sales of Mint Sets increased minimally from the 1973 level but dipped a bit again in 1976.

Each Mint Set consists of 12 uncirculated coins in 2 separate packages – one 6 coin package from the Denver Mint and one 6 coin package from the Philadelphia Mint. Each package has one each of the Lincoln Cent, Jefferson Nickel, Roosevelt Dime, Washington Quarter, Kennedy Half Dollar, and Eisenhower Dollar.

It was decided that the reverse designs for the 3 Bicentennial coins were going to be decided via a design competition open to the public. The Liberty Bell superimposed against the Moon design submitted by 22-year-old art student Dennis R. Williams was selected for the reverse of the Eisenhower Dollar. The depiction of Independence Hall design submitted by Seth G. Huntington was selected for the reverse of the Kennedy Half Dollar. And the Colonial Drummer design submitted by Jack L. Ahr was selected for the reverse of the Washington Quarter. The obverse of each of these Bicentennial coins has the dual date 1776-1976.
