1973-PDS Mint Set

In 1973, the Treasury added two Eisenhower Dollars to the Mint Sets for the years 1973 and 1973-D. The price of the sets was raised to $6.00, causing a dramatic drop-off in sales by nearly 1 million sets.

About the sets: The coins in the 1973-PDS Mint Sets were Uncirculated pieces pulled from regular production runs, thus the quality of the individual coins varies widely from set to set, and even within a set.

The 1973-PDS Mint Set contained thirteen coins, including the following:

1973-PDS Mint Set Cent Nickel Dime Quarter Half Dollar One Dollar (Copper-Nickel Clad)
Philadelphia 1 1 1 1 1 1
Denver 1 1 1 1 1 1
San Francisco 1 - - - - -

Mintage: 1,767,691 sets

Only Copper-Nickel Clad Eisenhower Dollars were included in the 1973-PDS Mint Set. 40% Silver Clad versions of the 1973-S Eisenhower Dollar were sold individually to collectors at a premium (known as "Blue Ikes"). The coins were sealed in a flat pliofilm pack, and placed in a glossy blue envelope.

Original packaging: The coins in the 1973-PDS Mint Set were sealed in two pliofilm flat packs: the D-Mint coins were placed together in one of the packs, and the P- and S-Mint coins were placed together in another. Because of the inclusion of the Eisenhower Dollars, no space was available for the disks that formerly identified the Mints. The pack containing the D-Mint coins was edged in red; the pack containing the P- and S-Mint coins was edged in blue. The two pliofilm packs and two pieces of thin cardboard (for protection) were sealed in an officially inscribed, white mailing envelope.
