Description Included With Purchase
The 1966 United States "Special Mint Set" contains a total of 5 different coins.

The 1966 sets mark the second of three years for these Special Mint Sets released by the United States Mint.

Because neither regular Proof Sets nor Mint Sets were produced in 1966, these five coin sets are collected by both proof and mint set collectors. But, due to their low mintage -- only 2,261,583 were produced -- these sets can be hard to find. Each of the five coins in the set is minted from specially produced dies which imparted a highly reflective (although not "proof") surface to the coins. Many collectors find them even more appealing than proofs!

For the second year, the Kennedy half-dollar is the only coin in the set that contains 40% silver.

Also included are the Lincoln cent, Jefferson nickel, Roosevelt dime and Washington quarter.

All five coins are housed in the Mint's special hard plastic holder to protect the special finish imparted to each coin.

This "vintage" set has been previously owned. It is in "like new" condition and comes in its full original US Mint packaging.
