1990 Uncirculated Mint Set
The 1990 Mint Set (Buy on eBay) represents another issue of the broader product series that can be acquired today for less than the original issue price. Each set includes the ten coins issued for circulation during the year, with a collective face value of $1.82. The US Mint marketed and sold the sets to collectors for $7.00 per set. Some bargain hunting will uncover sets priced several dollars lower.
Circulating coins were struck at the Philadelphia and Denver Mint facilities. The denominations include the cent, nickel, dime, quarter, and half dollar. In addition to these ten coins, each 1990 Mint Set also includes tokens from each mint. The tokens include a large “P” or “D” and “Uncirculated Philadelphia” or “Uncirculated Denver” on one side, and the US Treasury Department seal on the other side.
The Philadelphia Mint coins and token are packaged in a single cellophane bordered in blue, while the Denver Mint coins and token are packaged in a second cellophane with blue border. A certificate of authenticity with coin specification information is provided. The coins and COA are packaged in an illustrated envelope.
