1987-PD Mint Set

The 1987 Kennedy Half Dollar was never released into circulation, so interest in the 1987-PD Mint Set exploded. The mintage of the 1987 set was more than twice that of the 1986 set. The mintage of 2.89 million sets ranks third highest of any Mint Set (first place honors go to the 1976 3-piece set; second place honors go to the 1981-PDS set).

About the sets: The coins in the 1987-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 1987-PD Mint Set contained ten coins, including the following:

1987-PD Mint Set Cent Nickel Dime Quarter Half Dollar
Philadelphia 1 1 1 1 1
Denver 1 1 1 1 1

Mintage: 2,890,758 sets

Original packaging: The 1987-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.

America in 1987
