Among all of the annual Mint Sets, there is a uniqueness to the 1975 Set. With the Bicentennial being just one year away, the US Mint chose not to produce 1975 dated quarters, half dollars, and dollar coins. Foreseeing heightened demand for these coins, they began production of the 1776-1976 Bicentennial coins in 1975 and included them in the 1975 Mint Sets.
The 1975 US Mint Set includes 12 uncirculated coins in 2 separate packages. The package with the red edging contains 6 coins, all from the Denver Mint. The package with the blue edging also contains 6 coins, however, all from the Philadelphia Mint. This is the first year that the San Francisco Mint no longer produced coins for circulation. Each of these packages contains one each of the Lincoln Cent, Jefferson Nickel, Roosevelt Dime, Washington Quarter, Kennedy Half Dollar, and Eisenhower Dollar. The cent, nickel, and dime in each package are all dated 1975, while the quarter, half dollar, and dollar in each package are all dated 1776-1976.
The Bicentennial Eisenhower Dollar in the 1975 Mint Set is the Type 1 version, known for its thicker lettering on the reverse. Since the Washington Quarter, Kennedy Half Dollar, and Eisenhower Dollar in the sets are the Bicentennial versions, they feature new reverse designs and are dual-dated. Each of the new reverse designs was the result of a design competition that the US Mint opened to the public.
