This guide lists average prices that you would pay to a coin dealer to acquire a U.S. Mint uncirculated mint set that was produced between 1947 and 2012.  If you are looking to sell your mint sets, then you want to refer to the Modern U.S. Mint Set Values (1947 - 2012) chart.

Introduction to Coin Prices

There are many factors that go into determining the price that a dealer charges for coins. An understanding of how the coin market works will help you. If the coin dealer runs out of 1964 uncirculated mint sets, he cannot just call the U.S. Mint and get more of them because the mint does not sell coins dated 1964 anymore. The coin dealer must replenish his supply by buying more uncirculated mint sets from other coin dealers or people off the street. What he pays you for that set is known as the "wholesale price" or "value." If you want to buy that 1964 uncirculated mint set from the coin dealer, that is known as the " retail price" or "price."

Average Prices

The following table lists the price (what you can expect to pay to a dealer) for you to purchase a particular United States uncirculated mint set. The first column lists the date and type of the uncirculated mint set followed by the original issue price that the U.S. Mint charged customers when they were first issued, the average current retail price coin dealers are charging their customers and the amount of increase (or decrease) over the original issue price. These are approximate values and the actual price that a particular dealer charges will vary depending on a number of other factors.
