1992 United States Silver Proof Set
1992 U.S. Silver Proof Sets – Struck on the 200th Anniversary of the U.S. Mint
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 with 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®, 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 the key-date 1992 Silver Proof Set – the first proof set with the cupronickel denominations replaced by coins struck in 90% fine silver!
