1979 Mint Set. As the cost of copper and nickel rose in 1979, the big Ike dollar was replaced by the smaller Susan B. Anthony dollar. The first of these diminutive dollars were struck in large numbers for circulation. But only 2.5 million perfect Brilliant Uncirculated specimens were released as part of this mint set, which also included Philadelphia (no mintmark) and Denver (D) cents, nickels, dimes, quarters and half dollars.

1999 Mint Set. Comprised of 18 coins, the 1999 U.S. mint set surpassed any previous issue in size due to the introduction of the State Quarter series. Included are both Philadelphia cents, nickels, dimes and half dollars, plus five one-year-only P and D quarters honoring Delaware, Pennsylvania, New Jersey, Georgia and Connecticut. Its mintage was just 1.2 million about half of the 1999 proof set.

1989 Proof Set. This 5-coin set includes finest-quality proofs of the cent, nickel, dime, quarter and half dollar for the date. Their double-struck engravings have a crisp raised appearance with elegant frosted finishes contrasting with stunning mirror backgrounds. Each proof coin's extraordinary beauty is protected by the U.S. Mint's see-through plastic case.

2004 Proof Set. This big 11-coin set includes all five of the 2004 State quarters (Michigan, Florida, Texas, Iowa and Wisconsin), as well as the Roosevelt dime and Kennedy half dollar. The set also includes proof versions of the Lincoln cent, the Peace Medal and Keelboat nickels, and the Sacagawea dollar. Seven of the coins boast one-year-only designs.
