1974 US Mint Uncirculated Coin Set GEM BU in Original Mint Packaging

The US Mint has been producing and selling uncirculated coin sets since 1947. Normally, coins of each denomination and design that were struck for circulation are included. This means that the number varies from year to year. For many collectors it is enjoyable to try and acquire an uncirculated coin set for each year since it began. Whether you are missing the 1974 set or it was a year to remember in your life, buy the 1974 US Mint Uncirculated Coin Set GEM BU in Original Mint Packaging now to capture a piece of America's coin history!

In the 1974 US Mint set, there are 3 Lincoln Cents, Two Jefferson Nickels, two Roosevelt Dimes, two Washington Quarters, two Kennedy Half Dollars, and two Eisenhower Dollars. The addition of the Eisenhower Dollars in 1973 had brought the total number of coins to thirteen and the face value up to $3.83. Each nickel, dime, quarter, half dollar, and dollar have either the mint mark "P" or "D" which are the marks of the Philadelphia and Denver Mints, respectively. The three Lincoln Cents are from the Philadelphia mint and Denver mint, as well as the San Francisco mint which bears the mint mark "S.” Notably, 1974 was the last year that the San Francisco mint made coins for the uncirculated sets.

Something to note is that US mint uncirculated sets (such as this one) are different from US mint proof sets. Some of the main differences are as follows: uncirculated set coins are struck very closely to the same quality as circulated coins while proof sets are struck by polished dies on polished blanks. Also both sets have a coin from each denomination and design, but uncirculated sets have one from each mint they were made at during the year as well. This means that most uncirculated sets have at least two of each coin denomination.

This US Mint uncirculated coin set is GEM BU (the abbreviation for "brilliant uncirculated") quality. GEM means that the coins do not show wear and BU means that they have retained their shine with at least 95% of the original luster from the Mint. However, soft tones of amber and blue are acceptable for coins in this classification. These terms are widely used by coin dealers to denote the quality of the coins being purchased.

The 1974 set is still in its original Mint packaging, which has been soft cellophane packets since 1959. One packet has red striping, the other has blue striping. These packets are placed between cardboard and then in an envelope that is labeled in the top left corner with "U.S. Mint" and "1974 Uncirculated Coin.”

Buying US Mint uncirculated coin sets can be a wonderful way to commemorate something special in your life or even as a unique gift for someone else. Add the 1974 US Mint Uncirculated Coin Set GEM BU in Original Mint Packaging 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.

Very happy with the entire buying experience. I think it will be a kick to give Birth year gifts, that may, over a period of time, increase in value. How many people do you know that have a set of coins minted the year they were born??
