1960 Mint Set

About the sets: The coins in the 1960 Mint Sets were Uncirculated pieces pulled from regular production runs, thus the quality of the individual coins varies wildly from set to set, and even within a set.

The 1960 Mint Set contained ten coins, including the following:

1960 Mint Set Cent Nickel Dime Quarter Half Dollar
Philadelphia 1 1 1 1 1
Denver 1 1 1 1 1

 

Mintage: 260,485 sets

Original packaging: Pliofilm packaging, similar to Proof Sets. The five coins from the Philadelphia Mint were placed in individual compartments in one pliofilm pack; the five coins from the Denver Mint were placed in another. The two pliofilm packs were inserted, along with a card, into a mailing envelope for shipment to customers.
