Sales of Mint Sets in 1987 soared to 2,890,758 sets! This was quite a departure from the previous 3 years, where Mint Set sales had dropped consecutively each year. The 1987 sales were more than double the Mint Set sales of 1986. In fact, the 1987 sales exceeded the combined sales for 1985 and 1986. Why? These soaring sales are attributed to the 1987 Kennedy Half Dollar. These Half Dollars were not struck for circulation in 1987, thus making the only way to obtain one was by purchasing a Mint Set.

Each 1987 Mint Set contains two packages. The first package consists of 5 coins plus a cent-sized token with a D on it to indicate that these coins are from the Denver Mint. The other package consists of 5 coins plus a cent-sized token with a P on it to indicate that these coins are from the Philadelphia Mint. Each of these packages contains one each of the Lincoln Cent, Jefferson Nickel, Roosevelt Dime, Washington Quarter, and Kennedy Half Dollar.

The Washington Quarter obverse features the left-facing profile of George Washington. In 1786, Jean-Antoine Houdon sculpted a bust of President Washington. This bust then became the inspiration for this design created by John Flanagan. Flanagan had the opportunity early in his career to work as an assistant to the legendary coin designer, Augustus Saint-Gaudens.

The Washington Quarter reverse features an eagle, perched atop a bundle of arrows with its wings outspread, framed beneath by two olive branches. This design was also the creation of John Flanagan.
