Why order this 1965-1967 U.S. Special Mint Set?
From 1965-1967, the US Mint issued the only three Special Mint Sets in its history. Each set consists of the five coins that were struck for circulation that year: the Kennedy half dollar, the Washington quarter, the Roosevelt dime, the Jefferson nickel, and the Lincoln cent. The sets were issued on account of a national shortage of circulating coins. Although the coins in these sets are not quite proofs, they are shinier and brighter than their circulated counterparts. All of these coins come in their original mint packaging and remain in Brilliant Uncirculated condition.
Classic Presidential Designs
Each of the five coins features a portrait of one of the most important presidents in American history on the obverse. John F. Kennedy, George Washington, Franklin Delano Roosevelt, and Thomas Jefferson face left, while Abraham Lincoln faces right. Joining them on the obverse are the inscriptions "LIBERTY," "IN GOD WE TRUST," and the date.
Three of the reverses feature designs that relate specifically to the President shown on the obverse. The Roosevelt dime features a torch between oak and olive branches, the Jefferson nickel his famous home, Monticello, and the Lincoln cent the Lincoln Memorial. The Washington quarter depicts an eagle perched upon arrows, and the Kennedy half dollar bears a modified Presidential Seal. Inscriptions common to all of them are "UNITED STATES OF AMERICA," "E PLURIBUS UNUM" (From many, one), and the individual coin's respective face value.
