This guide will give you an idea of how much your uncirculated mint set issued by the U.S. Mint, made from 1947 through today, is worth.  The table below provides average coin values based upon current market conditions.  This guide assumes that all sets are in original U.S. Mint packaging, boxes and all original documents and/or Certificates of Authenticity (COA) are included. The sets  should be free from damage and the coins must have never been circulated.

Introduction to Coin Values

There are many factors that go into determining the value of your coins. First of all you must understand how the coin market works. If the coin dealer runs out of 1961 mint sets, he cannot just call the mint and order more of them because the mint does not make coins dated 1961 anymore. The coin dealer must replenish his supply by buying mint sets from other dealers or people who walked into his store. What he pays you for that coin set is known as the "wholesale price" or "value." If you want to buy that 1961 mint set from the coin dealer, that is known as the "retail price" or "price."

Key Dates, Rarities and Varieties

The following mint sets in any condition, are worth considerable more than common mint sets.  As such, these coins and original U.S. Mint packaging may frequently altered from common ones.  Therefore, before you start celebrating your early retirement with your new found fortune, have the coins authenticated by a reputable coin dealer or third party grading service.

Modern U.S. Mint Set Coin Values

The following table lists the value (what you can expect a dealer to pay you) for your mint sets. The first column lists the date and type followed by some information about the set and the average value that a coin dealer will pay to you. These are approximate values and the actual offer that you will receive from a particular dealer will vary depending on the actual grade of the coins and a number of other factors.

* = See the section above "Key Dates, Rarities and Varieties" for more information on these coins.
^ = Number of "Sets Sold" are included with the number above.
- = These sets are still being sold by the U.S. Mint and/or data is not available.
# = Uncirculated Mint Sets were not sold in 1982 and 1983 by mail. However, visitors to the mint facilities in Philadelphia and Denver during those years could buy a set of coins from that particular mint.

These values have been compiled through my personal analysis of the coin market, referencing publications such as Numismatic News, Coin World, "The Official Blue Book; Handbook of U.S. Coins," The Coin Dealer Newsletter, published auction results and consulting with various coin dealers.
