No Mysteries Inside This Sealed Envelope!

Even though this envelope from the U.S. Mint is sealed, we know exactly what's inside! You can own this five-piece 1964 U.S. Proof Set, still sealed in its official U.S. Mint packaging.

1964 saw the introduction of the new John F. Kennedy Half Dollar, struck in honor of the President assassinated just a short time earlier. Kennedy's popularity and the prospect of the new Half Dollar drove sales of 1964 Proof Sets through the roof.

By January 11th, 1964, the Mint halted orders for 1964 Proof Sets. Despite a published limit of 100 Proof Sets per person, many of the larger orders were filled only partially to give buyers of one and two sets a chance to obtain a Proof Set of the year. Even the limit of two sets was halted on March 12 because the Mint received orders for 200,000 sets in two days!

Another reason that the 1964 Proof Set is so highly sought after is that 1964 was the last year of the 90% Silver coins. Beginning in 1965, the Mint switched to a Copper-Nickel "Clad" coinage and only the Half Dollar was to contain any Silver (and then, only 40%).

Each set contains a Lincoln Cent, Jefferson Nickel, Roosevelt Dime, Washington Quarter and Kennedy Half-Dollar. In 1964, each coin was 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.
