1978 United States Mint Set in Original Mint Packaging
The 1978 Mint Set is the last United States Mint set to include the Eisenhower Dollar, as mintage of the Susan B. Anthony dollar would begin the following year. Overall the set includes 12 coins: 2 Lincoln cents, one each from Philadelphia and Denver, 2 Jefferson Nickels, one each from Philadelphia and Denver, 2 Roosevelt dimes, one each from Philadelphia and Denver, 2 Washington Quarters, one each from Philadelphia and Denver, 2 Kennedy half dollars, one each from Philadelphia and Denver, and 2 Eisenhower dollars, one each from Philadelphia and Denver.
Production of the 1978 mint set left numbers of sets available on the secondary market that would not noticeably decrease for a number of years, but today, nearly 40 years after their initial release, they are becoming more difficult to find in the original sets (as sold here).
The packaging of this set remained the same as they year prior with a cellophane and cardboard case encompassing the coins before being placed into a white envelope marked with the Treasury Department address. The Denver Mint coins are packaged with a red border, and the Philadelphia Mint coins are packaged with a blue border.
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.
