US Mint Proof Sets and Commemoratives

Uncirculated Sets

The United States Mint issues annually for collectors a complete set of circulating coins in mint state condition known as an uncirculated mint set. The sets include a specimen of each coin minted for circulation that year from each of the US Mints. The sets come packaged in a paper envelope with coins in a cellophane pack. Early sets from the late 1940s and 1950s were not produced in large numbers and can be quite valuable. However, by the mid-1960s, these sets began to be produced in large numbers, and although they are still collectable, they are not all that valuable.

Proof Sets

The United States Mint issues annually for collectors a complete set of proof coins known as a proof set. The sets include a state-of-the-art, proof version each coin minted for circulation that year and are sold by the US Mint at a premium. For about the last 50+ years, these sets include proof coins packaged in a protective acrylic lens inside a boxed labeled for that particular year. The first year of issue was 1936, but these sets were not produced every year since. Silver proof sets were introduced in 1992 in which the half dollar, quarter(s) and dime were struck in silver. Partial proof sets, such as the 50 State Quarters proof sets, and special “Prestige” and “Premier” sets have also been produced for collectors. The value of these proof sets varies greatly based on their mintages and the metal composition of the coins.

Modern Commemorative Coins and Sets

Commemorative versions of circulating US coins were first introduced in 1892 with the World’s Columbian Exposition Half Dollar and continued through 1954 with the Carver/Washington Half Dollar. Although these coins were produced in much lower numbers than their standard design counterparts, they were still produced as circulating coins. The US mint resumed producing commemorative coins in 1982 with the George Washington 250th Anniversary of Birth Silver Half Dollar. However, this and subsequent commemorative coins were not produced for circulation. Collectors instead bought these specially packaged coins directly from the US Mint. This began what is now known as “modern commemorative” coins. These coins are sold individually and in sets, uncirculated and proof editions, and in multiple metal compositions. The value of these coins and sets varies greatly based on their mintages and the metal composition of the coins.
