1992-2010 United States Silver Proof Set Collection
1992-2010 U.S. Mint Silver Proof Set
Did you know that modern U.S. Mint Silver Proof Sets owe their existence to a fire? It’s true! A fire at the U.S. Mint in Philadelphia in 1817 destroyed much of the mint’s equipment. It was replaced with new “high tech” minting equipment from Europe that allowed the mint to strike coins several times, and to make proofs.
Well, over the next several years the mint employees were like kids in a candy shop, striking proof coins to show off their skills and the new-fangled equipment. But they didn’t sell these coins to collectors. They kept them in their own “mint cabinet”. Many of these coins eventually ended up at the Smithsonian Institution®, where they are now part of our treasured national coin collection.
Later in the 19th century, the mint struck proof coins to order. And starting in 1936, they began selling complete proof sets. Since then, the historic U.S. Silver Proof Set series has grown to become one of our most popular issues each year. We’re pleased to be able to offer 19 years of proof sets between 1992 and 2010, even the scarce 1999 set, the first to include all five silver State Quarter proofs. Each set includes the Lincoln Cent, Jefferson Nickel, silver Roosevelt Dime, silver Washington Quarters, silver Kennedy Half Dollar and Native American Golden Dollar from the year they were issued. The 2007 through 2010 sets include the four Presidential Dollars issued those years.
Every set comes in its original U.S. Mint packaging. So, get a jump start on a more complete collection stretching back to 1936 by ordering the 19 years of proof sets from 1992 through 2010. You’ll save by ordering the 19-year set, and you’ll receive a bonus copy of United States Proof and Mint Setsby Bill Gale and Ron Guth - a $29.95 value - free! U.S. Mint Proof Sets make great gifts for birthdays, graduations and other special occasions.
