The Perfect Place to Start Your U.S. Proof Set Collection!
This three-piece collection brings together three United States Mint Proof Sets – each collecting one example of all the circulating coins for that particular year, struck to a glorious Proof condition with frosted details and mirrored fields. This collection starts you off with the 1961, 1962 and 1963 U.S. Proof Sets – the final three years of the 90% silver Franklin Half Dollar. The coin featuring Founding father Benjamin Franklin would have gone on longer, but the tragic assassination of President John F. Kennedy resulted in the Franklin Half being retired in favor of the new Kennedy Half Dollar in 1964.
The ultimate standard in coins is the Proof – a gleaming coin with details so sharp and luster so dazzling that one instantly recognizes it as the pinnacle of minting perfection. Each year when the U.S. Mint creates a small number of U.S. Proof Sets, Americans scramble to get their share of the limited edition. Buying proof sets is the only way to get annual coins in each denomination with unparalleled craftsmanship.
Each set in your 1961-1963 U.S. Proof Set Three-Piece Collection contains five coins: One example each of the Lincoln Cent, Jefferson Nickel, Roosevelt Dime, Washington Quarter, and Benjamin Franklin Half Dollar. In addition, each coin is sealed in its own compartment between two sheets of flat pliofilm. An octagonal foil seal imprinted with "US MINT PHILADELPHIA" was placed in a sixth compartment, and the flat pack was then inserted into a mailing envelope with a card.
Each set is a one-year-only release, and together all three can cost you an additional $25 if you try to secure them elsewhere. Plus, with this incredible offer you’ll also received the updated 247-page paperback book United States Proof Sets and Mint Sets (1936–2017) by nationally recognized numismatist Bill Gale – the first reference book devoted exclusively to modern U.S. Proof and Mint Sets. Get your proof collection rolling and add these sets to your personal archives today!
