1980-PDS Mint Set

The 1980 Mint Set has the third highest mintage of any Mint Set issued since 1976. 1980 was the first time in history that Mint Sets contained Dollars from all three issuing mints which increased the demand for this set. From 1980 on, a small letter "P" appears as a mintmark on all coins issued by the Philadelphia Mint, except for the Cent.

About the sets: The coins in the 1980-PDS 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.

Some 1980 Mint Sets contain a nice 1980-D Nickel with a Doubled Die Reverse (check any of the reverse lettering for doubling).

The 1980-PDS Mint Set contained thirteen coins, including the following:

1980-PDS Mint Set Cent Nickel Dime Quarter Half Dollar One Dollar (Copper-Nickel Clad)
Philadelphia 1 1 1 1 1 1
Denver 1 1 1 1 1 1
San Francisco - - - - - 1


Mintage: 2,815,066 sets

Original packaging: The coins in the 1980-PDS Mint Set were sealed in two pliofilm flat packs: the D- and S-Mint coins were placed together in one of the packs, and the P-Mint coins were placed together in another. 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 two pieces of thin cardboard (for protection) were sealed in an officially inscribed, white mailing envelope.
