There was a three-coin silver mint set issued, as well as a silver proof set.

As those coins were business strikes (though never intended for general circulation), shouldn't they have been included in the 1976 mint set?

Hi, there. The silver mint set can be found here:

Thanks for your interest.

I may have misunderstood the question.

If you are asking why the Mint did not include the silver coins with the clad, then my (somewhat cynical) response would be that they thought they could make more money by requiring the collector to purchase two different sets in order to have an example of every business strike coin.

If you are asking why NGC has different sets, I assume it is to enable collectors to participate in the Registry who do not want to have to buy both sets.
