2007 United States Mint Uncirculated Set

On October 9, the US Mint started offering the 2007 United States Mint Uncirculated Set. The set is available for $22.95 directly from the US Mint.

As usual, the set will include examples of all United States coins from the Philadelphia and Denver mints. Similar to recent years, these will be special strikes produced only for the mint sets. The coins will be struck on special presses using greater force than used for standard circulating coins. This results in a much sharper strike and a satin finish. Third party grading services have been designating these as "SMS."

This year's set has expanded from last year's set in terms of number of coins due to the new Presidential Dollar series. There are a total of 28 coins in the set. This year's set includes the following:
  • 8 Presidential Dollars
  • 2 Sacagawea Dollars
  • 2 Kennedy Half Dollars
  • 10 State Quarters
  • 2 Roosevelt Dimes
  • 2 Jefferson Nickels
  • 2 Lincoln Cents
This year's set provides a greater relative value as compared to last year's set. The 2006 Mint Set contained $5.82 in face value coins and sold for $16.95. This represents a mark up of 2.91 times face value.

The 2007 Mint Set contains $13.82 in face value coins and sells for $22.95. This represents a mark up of 1.66 times face value.
