With the rising popularity of coin collecting in 1960s and 1970s, mints around the world began producing yearly sets for sale to collectors. The format and packaging has varied but the sets have typically contained one of each denomination for that year, even if there are no circulation examples for that year, and sometimes examples of extra non-circulating denominations.

Modern mint sets are usually struck in high numbers to cater to the demands of collectors.
