1996-S Proof Set

Sales of regular Proof Sets dropped to 1,695,244 sets in 1996 - the lowest level since 1960! Because of the lower mintage, 1996-S Proof Sets remain one of the best values in numismatics.

Each set contained five coins: One example each of the Lincoln Cent, Jefferson Nickel, Roosevelt Dime (Copper-Nickel Clad), Washington Quarter (Copper-Nickel Clad), and Kennedy Half Dollar (Copper-Nickel Clad).

About the sets: All coins in the 1996-S Proof Set were intended to have a Cameo or Deep Cameo Finish.

Mintage: 2,085,191 sets

Original packaging: The coins of the 1996-S Proof Set were placed in individual holes in a green-colored, textured paper and cardboard insert, then sealed in a two-piece, clear plastic case. The case was then inserted, along with a Certificate of Authenticity, into a protective outer cover consisting of green cardboard imprinted with the silver and somewhat confusing words: "United States Mint Proof Set • 1996." The new collector might ask, "Is this a Mint Set or a Proof Set?"
