Wouldn't you love to own the best quality coins available? You can, with U.S. Mint Proof Sets! What is a Proof Set? It's a specially made, premium-quality set of coins containing one of each denomination issued by the U.S. Mint for that year. 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.
This special edition Proof Set from 1992 is particularly desirable, because it's the first set after a 28-year lapse to feature all the denominations above the nickel in 90% silver. In 1964, when silver prices went through the roof, the precious metal was eliminated from circulating coinage - returning only in these modern-day Proof Sets. With this important set, you get the Proof cent and nickel, as well as the 90% silver dime, quarter, and half dollar. Each historic 5-coin set comes with an official certificate of authenticity. 1,009,586 minted. Order yours today!
