1985 United States Mint Set in the original mint packaging

The 1985 Mint Set was the second issue since a two-year break from Mint Sets. It had a low mintage because collectors had not yet warmed up to the idea of mint sets after the two-year break in 1982 and 1983. Collectors generally like unbroken streaks, and the holes left behind in 1982 and 1983 did not make collectors happy.

This Mint Set is like the previous year in that it includes ten coins and two Mint tokens from both the Philadelphia and Denver Mint where the coins were minted. These tokens were minted on cent planchets giving the initial appearance of four cent coins in the set. The coins in the set were

Overall the 1985 Mint Set includes 10 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, and 2 Kennedy half dollars, one each from Philadelphia and Denver.

The packaging for this set was a continuation on the new idea of creating graphically appealing packaging, which was vastly different from the sterile utilitarian appearance of a white envelope that had been a very familiar sight with mint sets of past.


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.
