Uncirculated Coin:

Coins with no wear at all are referred to as uncirculated, or in mint state (MS). They are manufactured in much the same way as circulated coins except more attention and time is given to the preparation of the die surface finish. The coins are also struck with greater pressure to improve the sharpness of the design. MS-60 to MS-70 classifications are used for mint state coins.
