1980 United States Mint set - 13 coins - in the original mint packaging
Each 1980 Mint Set includes thirteen uncirculated coins: 1980-P & D Lincoln Cents, 1980-P & D Jefferson Nickels, 1980-P & D Roosevelt Dimes, 1980-P & D Washington Quarters, 1980-P & D Kennedy Halves and 1980- P & D & S Susan B. Anthony Dollars. It is the first United States mint set ever to include three one dollar coins, and the most expensive set to date, with a face value of $4.82.
Despite the higher cost of the set, collectors were excited that they could own all three 1980 Susan B. Anthony dollars with one purchase, so mintage numbers increased overall from 1979 production. This leaves sets priced at an affordable level today, which is not much over the initial issue price from 1980.
This packaging for this year's mint set differed slightly because of the extra coin. The six coins that were minted in Philadelphia were placed in cellophane with a blue strip while the seven coins in the other package (6 Denver coins and the one San Francisco coin) coins were placed in red-colored bordered cellophane. The coins were then placed between protective cardboard and into an envelope that was mailed to the purchaser of the 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.
