2006-PD Mint Set

About the sets: The coins in the 2006-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 2006-PD Mint Set contained twenty-two coins, including the following:

2006-PD Mint Set Cent Nickel Dime Quarter Half Dollar One Dollar
Philadelphia 1 1 1 5 1 5
Denver 1 1 1 5 1 5

One example of each of the following from the Philadelphia and Denver Mints: Nevada Quarter, North Dakota Quarter, South Dakota Quarter, Nebraska Quarter, and Colorado Quarter (all Copper-Nickel Clad).

Mintage: 847,361 sets

About the sets: The 2006-PD Mint Set is highly collectible as it was the last year that Mint Sets featured Mylar® packaging to contain the coins. Beginning in 2007, the U.S. Mint packaged annual Mint Sets in two "blister pack" folders, rather than using Mylar packages within envelopes.

Original packaging: The 2006-PD Mint Set consisted of two different sets in two envelopes. One envelope contains coins from the Philadelphia Mint, the second contains coins from the Denver Mint. Each envelope contains two Mylar packages, the first containing the Cent, Nickels, Dime, Half Dollar, and Dollar. The second contains the following five 2006 Quarters from the 50 State Quarters® program: Nevada, North Dakota, Nebraska, South Dakota, and Colorado. The pack containing the D-Mint coins was edged in red, the pack containing the D-Mint Quarters was edged in black, the pack containing the P-Mint coins was edged in blue, and the pack containing the P-Mint Quarters was edged in white. The two P-Mint packs were placed in a blue envelope; the D-Mint packs in a red envelope.
