1988-PD Mint Set

The 1988 Mint Set mintage was off by 1.2 million from the 1987 set. This set is much more rare than even many experts realize.

About the sets: The coins in the 1988-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 1988-PD Mint Set contained ten coins, including the following:

1988-PD Mint Set Cent Nickel Dime Quarter Half Dollar
Philadelphia 1 1 1 1 1
Denver 1 1 1 1 1


Mintage: 1,646,204 sets

Original packaging: The 1988-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 mailing envelope (this package is very brittle; handle with care).
