1980-S Proof Set
One of the claims of distinction about the 1980-S Proof Set is the important modification in the packaging that should help the coins survive for centuries.
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: All coins in the 1980-S Proof Set were intended to have a Cameo or Deep Cameo Finish.
Mintage: 3,554,806 sets
Original packaging: In 1980, the packaging for the Proof Sets was down-sized to accommodate the smaller Dollar coin. At the same time, the Mint got rid of the red, felt-covered paper insert that was notorious for shedding tiny flecks of red "dust" onto the coins. Instead, the coins of the 1980-S Proof Set were placed in individual holes in a red plastic insert, then sealed in a two-piece, clear plastic case. The coins of the 1980-S Proof Set were placed in individual holes in a red plastic insert, then sealed in a two-piece, clear plastic case. The clear plastic case containing the coins slid into a molded, black plastic frame, with the raised silver letters "UNITED STATES PROOF SET" for storage. For display purposes, the frame served as a base for the case containing the coins, which fit into a slot in the frame. A black card slipcase, imprinted in silver with the words: "United States Proof Set • 1980", protected both the case and the frame.
