What Are Mint Sets?

Question Mark Concept

Mint sets are the complete, uncirculated set of coins released by the United States Mint in any given year. They typically contain one coin of each denomination made that year. This includes a penny, nickel, dime, quarter, half-dollar, and dollar coin. However, some sets might be made up of different versions of the same denomination. For example, beginning in 2010, the U.S. Mint has been releasing five different quarters every year as a part of the America the Beautiful collection. If you have all five uncirculated quarters from a year in the collection, that is considered a mint set.
