Each set contained fourteen coins: One example each of the Lincoln Cent, Jefferson Nickel, Roosevelt Dime, Kennedy Half Dollar, Sacagawea "Golden" Dollar, Oklahoma Quarter, New Mexico Quarter, Arizona Quarter, Alaska Quarter, and Hawaii Quarter (all Copper-Nickel Clad). It also includes four Presidential Dollars: Monroe, Adams, Jackson, and Van Buren (Copper-Nickel Clad).

About the sets: All coins in the 2008-S Proof Set were intended to have a Cameo or Deep Cameo Finish. The 2008 Proof Set is notable for containing the final coin in the nine-year Sacagawea Golden Dollar program. Starting in 2009, a new Native American Dollar series was unveiled.

Original packaging: The 2008-S Proof Set comes in three cases. One case contains the Cent, Nickel, Dime, and Half Dollar; one contains the final five 50 States Quarters, and the third case houses the four Presidential Dollars. The coins are inserted into holes in a cardboard holder, and then sealed inside a two-piece, clear plastic case. Two of the holder inserts feature a blue flag design, while the Presidential Dollar holder features a full-color patriotic theme. The cases and certificates of authenticity were inserted into colorful, card-stock box with the head of the Statue of Liberty printed on the left side.

Proof
A specially made coin distinguished by sharpness of detail and usually with a mirror-like surface. Proof refers to the method of manufacture and is not a condition.

Mint Name
San Francisco - S
Established in 1853 to strike coins from California’s newly-discovered vast reserves of gold, the San Francisco branch of the United States Mint is famous for the quality, lustrous Morgan Silver Dollars produced at "The Granite Lady" from 1878 to 1921. After moving to a new building in 1937, coin production at the San Francisco mint shut down in 1955. A shortage caused regular coin production to resume in 1965. While the mintage of circulating coins ceased in 1981, proof coins and commemoratives are still struck at the San Francisco Mint today.
