1984-PD Mint Set

Production of traditional Mint Sets resumed in 1984 to a lukewarm reception. Sales were off by more than a million sets from 1981. This set is the first Mint Set issued in the new colorful packaging which has changed every year since.

About the sets: The coins in the 1984-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 1984-PD Mint Set contained ten coins, including the following:

1984-PD Mint Set Cent Nickel Dime Quarter Half Dollar
Philadelphia 1 1 1 1 1
Denver 1 1 1 1 1

 

Mintage: 1,832,857 sets

Original packaging: The 1984-PD Mint Set consisted of two pliofilm packs. The first one contained the Philadelphia Mint coins and a Cent-sized token with a large "P" (for Philadelphia), while the second pack contained coins from the Denver Mint, plus a token with a large letter "D." 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 were then sealed in an officially inscribed, colorful mailing envelope.

America in 1984

The Vietnam War Memorial opened in Washington, DC. Americans re-elected President Ronald Reagan in a landslide.

Mint Name
Philadelphia - P
From its humble beginnings on Seventh Street through four different locations, the United States Mint's "Mother Mint" at 151 North Independence Mall East in Philadelphia is the largest of its kind in the world. The Philadelphia Mint is home to die production for all U.S. coinage, as well as facilities that produce a daily average of 30 million coins worth about $1 million.
Denver - D
To meet the need for a United States Mint location in the heart of the West, the U.S. Government acquired the assay office and private mint of Clark, Gruber and Company for $25,000 in 1863. While a new assay office was immediately set up in its place, the new branch of the U.S. Mint wasn't in full operation until 1906. Initially responsible for minting $20 Double Eagles from Colorado gold, today the Denver Mint produces about 40 million coins a day -- a total of 8 billion coins a year.
