The United States Mint actually did not produce any annual U.S. Mint or Proof Sets during the years 1965, 1966, and 1967! Instead, the United States Mint introduced the Special Mint Set, made specifically for coin collectors!
These came along because in 1964 the US Mint shifted the production of Proof Sets from the Philadelphia Mint to the San Francisco Mint. However, it took the Mint 3 years to get set up, so no regular issue Mint or Proof sets were released during that timeframe. The result? The birth of our first Satin Finish Sets! Each set contains one Cent, Nickel, Dime, Quarter, and Half Dollar from that year of issue and in their original government Special Mint Set packaging. It is hard to find these complete sets in the original packaging since they are now over 50 years old! Take advantage and add them to your collection!
