1976 3-Piece 40% Silver Mint Set

To celebrate the Bicentennial of American Independence, the U.S. Mint struck quarters, halves and dollars bearing the double date, 1776-1976. In addition to copper-nickel clad issues minted for circulation, deluxe 40% silver versions of the designs were produced. Also, a special 3-piece Mint Set containing these three 40% silver coins was issued. These 3-piece Bicentennial Mint Sets are highly desirable, not only because of the beauty of the silver and the commemorative design, but also because only 2% of all the U.S. Bicentennial coins were issued in silver. That makes this set even more highly sought-after.

Mint Name
San Francisco - S
Established in 1853 to strike coins from California’s newly-discovered vast reserves of gold, the San Francisco branch of the United States Mint is famous for the quality, lustrous Morgan Silver Dollars produced at "The Granite Lady" from 1878 to 1921. After moving to a new building in 1937, coin production at the San Francisco mint shut down in 1955. A shortage caused regular coin production to resume in 1965. While the mintage of circulating coins ceased in 1981, proof coins and commemoratives are still struck at the San Francisco Mint today.
