1978-S Proof Set

Though it is the last Proof Set to contain an Eisenhower Dollar (which is also the last full-sized Dollar produced by the U.S. Mint), the 1978-S Proof Set remains affordable. However, expect this to change over time, as more and more sets are broken up for individual, high-quality examples and for the Proof-only coins that make up this set.

Each set contained six coins: One example each of the Lincoln Cent, Jefferson Nickel, Roosevelt Dime, Washington Quarter, Kennedy Half Dollar, and Anthony Dollar.

About the sets: Beginning in 1978, all Proof coins were struck with Cameo or Deep Cameo Finishes.

Mintage: 3,127,781 sets

Original packaging: The individual coins of the 1978-S Proof Set were sealed in a two-piece, clear plastic case. Raised rings of plastic separated the coins from each other, and a red, felt-covered paper insert was added for visual impact. The clear plastic case containing the coins was inserted into a molded, black plastic frame with raised silver letters UNITED STATES PROOF SET, and a hinged flap that could be flipped over for display purposes. A black card cover imprinted with silver letters, "United States Proof Set • 1978" protected both the case and the frame.
