PROOF AND MINT SETS

The term "proof" refers to the method of manufacture rather than to grade.  Proof coins are made with selected dies that have been highly polished and cleaned.  The blank planchets are polished prior to use and are hand fed into the coin press with each planchet receiving two or more blows from the dies resulting in sharp, high relief details.  The proof coins are then handled with gloved hands or tongs where they are inserted into special plastic cases and sonically sealed.  No proof sets were issued in 1965, 1966, or 1967.  Types of proof sets are:

Regular Proof Sets (1936-1942, 1950-2001)
Prestige Proof Sets (1983-1984, 1986-1997)
Silver Proof Sets (1992-2001)
Silver Premier Proof Sets (1992-1998)

Mint sets are specially packaged uncirculated specimens of each year's coins for every denomination issued from each mint.  These coins are normal coins issued for circulation and are not minted with any special procedures.  Sets issued from 1947 to 1958 contain two examples of each coin and are packaged in cardboard holders that allowed the coins to darkly tone.  Since 1959, sets have been issued with one of each coin in a protective plastic envelope.   Special mint sets were issued in 1965 to 1967 and were of a higher quality than coins issued for general circulation.  No sets were produced in 1950, 1982, or 1983.
PRICES ARE SUBJECT TO CHANGE (UP AND DOWN) DUE TO MARKET FLUCTUATIONS.
