1986-PD Mint Set

The 1986-PD Mint Set had the lowest mintage of any Mint Set in more than twenty years, and except for the 1970-PDS Small Date Mint Set, this is one of the most prized Mint Sets in any collection.

About the sets: The coins in the 1986-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 1986-PD Mint Set contained ten coins, including the following:

1986-PD Mint Set Cent Nickel Dime Quarter Half Dollar
Philadelphia 1 1 1 1 1
Denver 1 1 1 1 1

 

Mintage: 1,153,536 sets

Original packaging: The 1986-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 and a card listing the specifications for each coin were then sealed in an officially inscribed, colorful mailing envelope.
