A United States Mint Set is generally a specially packaged set of business-strike coins that include one each of every coin issued for a specified year. Since 1947, the U.S. mint has produced these specially packaged sets nearly every year, but sometimes there is some confusion about the term “mint set.” A mint set is distinct from a proof set due to the striking process. A proof set is created by unique and careful treatment of the dies during the striking process, and proof sets are comprised of coins that are generally more valuable than their actual denominations. Therefore, proof sets are specifically produced for collectors. Though they are often collected, simple mint sets, on the other hand, are comprised of business strike coins using ordinary striking procedures. Mint sets are specially packaged, and they were never introduced into general circulation for use in commerce. Therefore, the coins remain protected in their brilliant, “mint state” packaging. Numismatics are often interested in mint sets from specific years when production of coins was limited, for example, or a rare error in production occurred in one of the coins in that set. In fact, regular-issue, business strike coins in high grade (excellent condition) are sometimes more valuable than their proof-struck counterparts. Since each coin in a mint set is in mint condition, and depending on the set’s age and rarity, coins in a mint set are often worth more than their actual denominations.
