Today, June 4, 2013, the United States Mint released its 2013 U.S. Mint Uncirculated Coin Set.

2013 United States Mint Uncirculated Coin Set

The 2013 United States Mint Uncirculated Coin Set and its 28 uncirculated coins that are split into two folders. The folder accented in reds hold the 14 coins from the Denver Mint and the folder accented in blue holds the 14 coins from the Philadelphia Mint.

An annually issued product made for collectors, it is always extremely popular. This year its price is $27.95, the same as last year’s set which unexpectedly sold out. Two years ago the sets were higher at $31.95.

The 2013 Mint Set, as it is commonly referred to by many, includes a total of twenty-eight coins. Fourteen are struck to uncirculated quality at the U.S. Mint’s facility in Philadelphia and the remaining fourteen are produced to uncirculated quality at the Denver facility. These two locations are responsible for the circulating coinage of the nation.

That fact is not without merit for this set as the coins found within it represent the circulating coinage minted by the two locations in 2013. However, as mentioned, the coins of the set are produced for numismatic purposes to uncirculated quality. Uncirculated coins are struck with greater force than their circulating counterparts, and that results in greater design detail.

Sales Expectations

Sales will be high for this newest collectible. Last year’s set sold out with a total of 392,224 units according to the Mint’s unaudited figures. The set from 2011 enjoyed a longer sales period and has final reported sales of 533,529.

Uncirculated Coins within US Mint Set

The twenty-eight coins of the 2013 U.S. Mint Uncirculated Coin Set are presented in two different folders with the strikes from Philadelphia in one and those from Denver in the other.

"The United States Mint is introducing new packaging for the 2013 set. Both folders display a U.S. red, white, and blue flag image on the front," describes a release from the U.S. Mint.

"The folder containing the coins from the United States Mint at Philadelphia is accented in blue, and the folder containing the coins from the United States Mint at Denver is accented in red."

Coins of each folder are sealed in protective blisters with the specifications of each imprinted above.

Found within the set are the following twenty-eight coins:

  • 2013 P&D Presidential $1 Coins honoring William McKinley, Theodore Roosevelt, William Howard Taft and Woodrow Wilson
  • 2013 P&D Native American $1 Coin commemorating the Delaware Treaty of 1778
  • 2013 P&D Kennedy Half Dollars
  • 2013 P&D America the Beautiful Quarters honoring White Mountain National Forest of New Hampshire, Perry’s Victory and International Peace Memorial of Ohio, Great Basin National Park of Nevada, Fort McHenry National Monument and Historic Shrine of Maryland and Mount Rushmore National Memorial South Dakota
  • 2013 P&D Roosevelt Dimes
  • 2013 P&D Jefferson Nickels
  • 2013 P&D Lincoln Cents

Of these coins, the Presidential $1 Coins, the Native American $1 Coin and the America the Beautiful Quarters showcase designs never before released as part of the annual uncirculated coin set.

I have never purchased a “mint set” before, just Proof sets. I know that many years ago they were both packaged pretty much the same way in the white or gold envelopes. Then in 1965 the proof sets were placed in small cases. My question is: when did the mint begin packaging the mint sets like they do now?

Griffin;
I think just in the last 6 or 8 years. I’ve gone back and bought the early 2000’s on eBay. The coins in these sets are really quite nice. Very clean condition, and the packaging really sets them off. You can see both the reverse & the obverse of each coin. Attractive packaging does do a lot for collector re-sale value down the road.
