Wouldn't you love to own the best quality coins available? You can, with U.S. Mint Proof Sets! What are Proof coins? Proof coins are produced in very small quantities compared to regular-issue coins. First, the Proof dies are thoroughly buffed and polished, and repolished frequently during production. Then, carefully selected coin blanks are individually fed into a specially modified coin press. Each coin is then struck at least twice, at slow speed and with extra pressure. The result of this process is the distinctive and beautiful frosty Proof appearance of sharply struck design images against mirrorlike surfaces.
Each gorgeous set gives you all 5 Statehood quarters issued in 2003 (Illinois, Alabama, Maine, Missouri, and Arkansas). All the coins bear the "S" San Francisco mint mark and have been produced especially for collectors. Proof coins set the standard of numismatic excellence, and they make elegant gifts. 1,235,832 minted. Order yours today!
