1984 United States Mint Set
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|
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.
