To use your term - "Self Assembly" - not a Royal Canadian Mint product.

The value of the sets is directly linked to the value of the individual coins.

@west, first welcome to CCF. Second, you will see that I have moved several of your threads to various Canadian subforums. This is to get them in front of all the right folks and keep things better organized.

Looks like some might have been cleaned, but definitely an aftermarket compilation.

Mints generally don't include coins from multiple different years in their official sets, especially years that are several decades apart. To make such a set, a mint would either have to stockpile a bunch of old coins just in case they needed them in the future (unprofitable, so unlikely), or purchase a bunch of the old coins they needed from secondary-market sources like coin dealers (also unprofitable, and unlikely), or restrike the old coins for use in the new sets (a controversial practice most mints avoid doing, as producing official mint restrikes does tend to damage the market value of the originals, thus angering coin collectors - the very people they'd be trying to sell the sets to).

So as a general rule of thumb, whenever you see a "coin set" where the coins have all different dates, it's a privately-produced aftermarket construct.

Sorry Sap, but the Royal Canadian Mint has broken that trend several times, here are some examples:
