Coin Values, Hobbies & Crafts

Mint Sets (or Uncirculated Sets) are complete sets of coins produced by each mint facility for circulation in a particular year. They are packaged and sold as coin collecting sets by the US Mint. A Mint Set contains one uncirculated coin of each denomination struck that year, from the pool of coins intended for general circulation. Unlike Proof Sets (which contain coins with the best finish, the finest quality of a coin), the coins in Mint Sets are not made with any special considerations regarding quality. (On rare occasion, we also talk about individual uncirculated coins here.)
