1976 Proof Set, 6-Coin. The 1976 proof set was the most popular ever released. Featured are finest quality proof coins of the Drummer Boy quarter, Independence Hall half dollar and Liberty Bell/Moon dollar. The year's cent, nickel and dime are also included.
1976 Mint Set, 12-Coin. Despite its Bicentennial importance, this set's mintage ended at just 1,892,513 which was the second lowest output for the decade. Included are P and D issues of the commemorative quarters, half dollars and dollars, as well as P and D pennies, nickels and dimes.
1976 Proof Set 40% Silver, 3-Coin. By 1976 all coins in circulation, proof sets and mint sets were copper-clad.
