Golden Eagle Coins Tip: A mint set contains a group of uncirculated coins struck by the U.S. Mint and is issued by year. Prices of a given mint set will vary according to the year you are purchasing. Many of the older mint set prices will be higher, but the date alone will not determine price. Certain differences in a coin set may make it more expensive for a given year. For instance, a 1970 uncirculated mint set sells for $19. However, the 1970 uncirculated mint set small date version sells for $50.
