1997-PD Mint Set

With no extra Dime (as in the 1996-PDW Mint Set), the public had no incentive to purchase 1997 Mint Sets. As a result, the mintage dropped to below 1 million sets for the first time since 1963! Today, these sets represent one of the best values and bargains in numismatics.

About the sets: The coins in the 1997-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 1997-PD Mint Set contained ten coins, including the following:

1997-PD Mint Set Cent Nickel Dime Quarter Half Dollar One Dollar
Philadelphia 1 1 1 1 1 1
Denver 1 1 1 1 1 1

One example of each of the following Quarters from the Philadelphia and Denver Mints: Delaware Quarter (Copper-Nickel Clad), Pennsylvania Quarter (Copper-Nickel Clad), New Jersey Quarter (Copper-Nickel Clad), Georgia Quarter (Copper-Nickel Clad), and Connecticut Quarter (Copper-Nickel Clad).

Mintage: 950,473 sets

Original packaging: The 1997-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 coins were then sealed in an officially inscribed, light blue mailing envelope.
