1980 Mint Set

U.S. Mint Uncirculated Coin Set

The 1980 Mint Set (Buy on eBay) saw the number of coins included rise to thirteen with the inclusion of the Susan B. Anthony Dollar struck at the San Francisco Mint. This marked the highest number of coins per set and also the first appearance of the “S” mint mark within the standard set since the 1974 Mint Set.

Introduced in the previous year, the new small sized dollar coin was struck at all three mint facilities for circulation. Unlike the previous year, all three mint marks were included within the annual Uncirculated Coin Set. The collective face value of the coins in the 1980 Mint Set was now $4.82. This led the United States Mint to increase the issue price by another $1.00 to $9.00 per set.

The set featured the Lincoln Cent, Jefferson Nickel, Roosevelt Dime, Washington Quarter, Kennedy Half Dollar, and Susan B. Anthony Dollar. It contained two of each coin—one struck at the Philadelphia Mint and the other at the Denver Mint. The 1980 Mint Set also contained a third Susan B. Anthony Dollar bearing the “S” mint mark.

The six coins from the Philadelphia Mint were sealed within a plastic cellophane with a blue color on the side. The seven remaining coins from the Denver and San Francisco Mint were sealed within a separate cellophane with a red color. Placed between protective cardboard, the two cellophane packs were placed within a white envelope marked with the contents.
