Due to shortage in coinage because of rising silver prices, 1966 marked the second year in a row that the United States Mint did not issue proof or mint sets. As a result, the Mint did produce the 1966 Special Mint Set.

The low mintage of these sets, 2,261,583, make them hard to find.

The five-coin set included: the Lincoln Cent, Washington Quarter, Kennedy Half Dollar, Roosevelt Dime and the Jefferson Nickel.

The original government packaging for this set featured all five coins in a plastic holder that read: "UNITED STATES SPECIAL MINT SET."


PLEASE NOTE: This U.S. Mint product was not purchased by us directly from the Mint but from collectors like you and other dealers. We make every effort to make sure the packaging is acceptable and that the coins are problem free. You may, however, receive coins that have toning or haze. This occurs naturally over time and is common to see. There may be some imperfections in packaging due to the sets leaving one collection to go into another. Please keep this in mind when examining your sets.

1966 U S Special Mint Set (Original Mint Packaging)
The purchase was for a gift for a 50th Birthday.

I was a little disappointed at the "original packaging" being so soiled/dirty, obviously it had been mishandled over the years.
Also, I was surprised that the coins did NOT all line-up in an orderly manner.

I still gave the gift for the special occasion, and the receiver glad to get it.
