1976-PD Mint Set

Despite the attraction of the Bicentennial coins, sales of the 1976-PD Mint Set dropped slightly from the previous year. Apparently, the public favored the 40% Silver versions over the Copper-Nickel Clad versions, snapping up the three-piece Bicentennial Mint Sets at a rate of more than two to one.

About the sets: The coins in the 1976-PD 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 1976-PD Mint Set contained twelve coins, including the following:

1976-PD Mint Set Cent Nickel Dime Bicentennial Quarter (Copper-Nickel Clad) Bicentennial Half Dollar (Copper-Nickel Clad) Bicentennial One Dollar (Copper-Nickel Clad)
Philadelphia 1 1 1 1 1 1
Denver 1 1 1 1 1 1

 

Mintage: 1,892,513 sets

Bicentennial Eisenhower Dollars are found with two different reverses: Variety I, with a straight tail on the R of DOLLAR, and the text is thicker; while Variety II, has a curved tail on the R of DOLLAR, and the text is thinner. All of the Dollars in the 1976-PD Mint Sets appear to be Variety II.

Original packaging: The coins in the 1976-PD Mint Set were sealed in two pliofilm flat packs: the D-Mint coins were placed together in one of the packs and the P-Mint coins were placed together in another. The pack containing the D-Mint coins was edged in red; the pack containing the P-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.
