Description & Analysis

A small number of 1964-dated five-coin sets from cent through half dollar came onto the market in the early 1990s. These pieces are not proofs, but they clearly differ from currency strikes. Boldly struck from fresh dies, they have satiny surfaces that reveal fine die-polishing lines.

The purpose for which these coins were coined is not absolutely certain, but the National Numismatic Collection in Washington, DC has similar coins for many dates in the 1950s and '60s that were presented to it by the U. S. Mint at the time of striking. It appears then that these were specimen strikes created for archival purposes, and exactly how the 1964 issues came into private ownership has not been satisfactorily answered. They are, however, legal to own and are highly prized by advanced collectors.
