    US Mint Sets continue to offer coins in brilliant uncirculated condition to collectors. The uncirculated coins in these Sets represent the coins that are actually in circulation during the specific year. These Mint Set coins are struck in 2 different Mints, and as such, are packaged in 2 separate sealed cellophane packages. Sales of Mint Sets experienced a peak in 1972, followed by an almost 1 million drop in sales in 1973. However, since that time, sales of Mint Sets have been experiencing gradual increases each year. Sales did reach 2,162,609 sets in 1978. Right now, JM Bullion has these 1978 US Mint Sets available for purchase.

    Coin Highlights:

    • Set arrives in sealed cellophane packaging!
    • Set includes twelve 1978 coins from the US Mint!
    • Face value is reflected in US dollars on each coin.
    • Each denomination has its own obverse and reverse design.
    • Total of 2,162,609 mint sets were issued in 1978.
    • Please note – some sets may be missing the outer envelope/sleeve/box.
    • Also note – some of the packaging may not be in perfect condition.

    The 1978 Mint Sets continue to include 12 uncirculated coins, separated into 2 packages. The package from the Denver Mint, which is bordered in red, contains 6 coins. The package from the Philadelphia Mint, which is bordered in blue, also contains 6 coins. One each of the Lincoln Cent, Jefferson Nickel, Roosevelt Dime, Washington Quarter, Kennedy Half Dollar, and Eisenhower Dollar are included in each package. This is the last year that the Eisenhower Dollar is included in the Set.

    Sales of 1978 Mint Sets increased slightly over 1977, rising to 2,162,609 sets, an increase of more than 155,000 sets. The face value of $3.82 and the original issue price of $7.00 remained the same from the previous year.

    Both the obverse and the reverse of the Eisenhower Dollar included in this Set were designed by Frank Gasparro, the tenth Chief Engraver of the US Mint. The particular designs allow the dollar to be commemorative of both Eisenhower and the Moon mission.

    Introduced in 1971, the obverse of the Eisenhower Dollar features a left-facing profile of Dwight D. Eisenhower. In 1945, Gasparro had been at a parade in New York, celebrating the Allied victory in Europe. General Eisenhower was in the parade and Gasparro took the opportunity to sketch the General’s features. A combination of this sketch, and roughly 30 pictures of the former President that Gasparro studied, were the basis for this design.

    The reverse of the Eisenhower Dollar is a tribute to the Apollo 11 mission. This was deemed appropriate since the space program began during Eisenhower’s administration. It features a bald eagle landing on the moon’s surface, carrying an olive branch. A depiction of the Earth is in the distant background.

    We recommend you refuse any shipment that appears to be damaged or tampered with as the shipping insurance ends once signed for and/or delivered. When refused, the package(s) will return to JM Bullion for inspection.

Failure to notify us of damage or tampering within 48 hours fromsignatureor delivery date may impact our ability to cover your claim.

    When will I receive my order?+

    When you will receive your order depends primarily on three factors

    1. When we receive your payment (checks and wires must be initiated/sent by you).
      • Please note that you will receive a Paid email once your payment is received.
    2. Holding period after cleared payment.
      • Depending on your payment method, we will hold the order once payment is received and cleared. The hold periods by payment method are listed in checkout and in your confirmation email. Paper checks take the longest and are held up to five business days after payment clears.
    3. Shipping method and transit time.
      • UPS 3-Day Air is the fastest and most reliable method of shipping. These are usually delivered in 1-3 business days once in transit.
      • USPS is less consistent in both transit time and tracking accuracy.
    What happens if my order is lost in transit?+

    All packages shipped by JM Bullion are covered by insurance subject to certain conditions. In the unlikely event that your order is Lost in Transit, you need to contact us immediately. Lost in Transit is defined for the USPS as tracking not having updated in 5 or more calendar days. For UPS, it is 3 calendar days. You must contact us within 7 days since last tracking for USPS and 3 days since last tracking for UPS. If you do not contact us by these timeframes, insurance will not cover the package.

    Once you contact us, we research the shipment with the carrier and begin the claim process. The claims process can take 30 or more days to resolve, and many Lost in Transit shipments end up getting delivered late. If the package is delivered, you must notify us within 24 hours.

    See also Section 13 of our Terms and Conditions.

    What happens if my order is damaged in transit?+

    Though unlikely, if your order is damaged during transit and/or any items are missing we require you to contact JM Bullion immediately so we can begin the claims process. If you have taken possession of a shipment that is damaged and/or is missing items, you have 2 days (48 hours) from the date of delivery to contact us as stated in our Terms and Conditions.

    Will I need to sign for my package?+

Please note, per our Terms and Conditions, once a package shows delivered, our responsibility ends. Please be available and attentive to receive the package when the courier arrives. Due to COVID 19, couriers are not always getting the signature.

    What if my order shows delivered but I did not receive it?+

    Please note that JM Bullion will not be responsible for reimbursements or insurance claims on packages that are successfully delivered as addressed. Our liability and insurance cease the moment the package is signed for or left at the specified delivery address.

    Do I have to ship my order to my billing address?+

    Depending on your method of payment, it is possible to have your order shipped to an address other than your billing address. If you pay with paper check, bank wire, ACH, Ethereum, Ripple, or bitcoin, you may have your order shipped wherever you please, with two exceptionsUPS locations and mail forwarding locations. If you pay with a credit/debit card, it depends on your order history. For credit cards, put the order through with your billing address as the shipping address, and then call us to see if we can change it to an alternate. If you pay via PayPal, your order must ship to a PayPal Verified address.

    How will I know when my order ships?+

    We will notify you by email once your order ships. You can also check the current status by logging in to your account or using ourTrack An Orderpage.

    How do I choose my shipping method?+

    You may choose how your order is shipped during the checkout process. In the last section of the checkout page, 4 Shipping Method, you will see the available shipping options for your order. If your purchase is eligible for free shipping, the pre-selected option will be base shipping, which is either USPS or UPS at our choice. If you would like to upgrade your shipping, you may choose one of the other options for a small fee. Simply click on the circle next to the shipping method you desire, and your order will be shipped via that method.

    If my order includes an item on presale, will the in-stock items ship first?+

    Unfortunately, due to the way insurance is applied to an order, everything must ship at the same time (i.e., in-stock items must await shipment until all presale items have arrived). Your order will ship in its entirety within 24-72 hours of our receiving the presale item. An email notification will be sent when your order ships.

    Do you ship to US territories?+

    We do not ship to US territories. Due to special requirements set by the postal systems, we are unable to ship outside of U.S. states.

    What does “No Will Call” mean?+

    All UPS shipments ship with a No Will Call restriction, meaning the package cannot be picked up from a UPS location. This is a precaution to prevent orders from being fraudulently intercepted.

    UPS will make three delivery attempts. If nobody is available at the delivery address to sign and accept delivery, the package will be returned to us.

    Where do you ship orders from?+

    All orders will ship from our warehouse in Las Vegas, Nevada. We mask our return address on all packages as to not give away the contents of the package.

    Do you offer UPS shipping to Alaska and Hawaii?+

    No, we do not. The costs in shipping to these places is extremely prohibitive, so we utilize USPS on all shipments.

    Do we ship to P.O. Boxes?+

    Yes! When products are shipped via the United States Postal Service, we can ship to a P.O. Box. Please note that insurance on shipments to P.O. Boxes ends as soon as the package shows delivered.

    Do you ship to UPS stores?+
