1967 US Mint Special Mint Set
The third and final Special Mint Set was produced in 1967 with an extremely low mintage of only 1,863,344 sets released. Special Mint sets were made due to rising silver costs. The coins in these sets were made out of coins composed out of a different clad composition made of copper sandwiched between two sections of nickel. Although not proof coins, they had a special finish applied to them giving them a unique sheen only seen on coins in special Mint sets.
The 1967 Special Mint Set featured 1 coin of each type released into circulation that year: the Lincoln Cent, Kennedy Half Dollar, Roosevelt Dime, Washington Quarter and the Jefferson Nickel. Although struck at the San Francisco Mint, these coins bear no Mint mark. The Kennedy Half Dollar is unique in this set, in that it is composed out of 40% silver.
Because of its low mintage, this set is highly collectible today. It is quite elusive, and sets are typically a prize piece in a collection of US Mint coin sets. If you are missing this set, then here is your opportunity to be one step closer to having all of them! Don’t miss out on this great buy, and add it to your collection today!
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.
