About Uncirculated Sets:
Since 1947, the U.S. Mint has issued annual coin sets featuring brilliant uncirculated examples of every coin intended for circulation that year. One specimen from each Mint location is included-- Philadelphia, Denver, and/or San Francisco, depending on the year. Although the packaging has changed over time, the basic concept remains. After more than 70 years of production, these annual coin sets continue to be one of the most popular and affordable ways to collect coins. Consider pairing the uncirculated coin sets with the annual proof sets to obtain one of every circulating coin struck in each finish and at every mint.

The products offered here were hand-selected by professional numismatists after screening thousands of collectible coins for quality and eye-appeal, making them among the best examples available in the collector community. However, the coins in these vintage sets may show light toning and the packaging may show light wear, commensurate with their age. U.S. Mint certificates of authenticity will be provided for each set if they were originally offered. An Olevian Numismatic Rarities certificate will also be included with the collection.
