2016 U.S. Limited Edition Silver Proof Set
The Limited Edition Silver Proof Set Returns for 2016!
The Limited Edition Silver Proof Set from the United States Mint is back and better than ever! The U.S. Mint had produced these gorgeous and stylish sets in 2012, 2013 and 2014. However, due to several factors including packaging delays and scheduling issues, the call was made to cancel the 2015 set entirely. Now, the Limited Edition Silver Proof Set has returned for 2016 with all of the standards, plus a new take on an old favorite!
So, what makes this Silver Proof Set "Limited Edition?" To start, most of the coins in this set are made of 90% pure silver, with the exception of the 2016 Silver Eagle which clocks in at 99.9% pure silver. Non-silver proofs that are included in the regular U.S. Silver Proof Set, like cents, nickels and dollars, are excluded from the Limited Edition set, replaced by the spectacular Silver Eagle!
This 2016 Limited Edition Silver Proof Set contains a Roosevelt Proof Silver Dime and a Kennedy Proof Silver Half Dollar. In addition, all of the year's America the Beautiful Quarters® are here, proof minted in silver, featuring:
- The majestic Shawnee National Forest in Illinois, with a view of Camel Rock and a soaring red-tailed hawk
- Kentucky's Cumberland Gap National Historic Park, dramatizing a frontiersman at the "First Doorway to the West"
- Harpers Ferry National Historical Park in West Virginia, featuring the monumental John Brown's Fort
- Theodore Roosevelt National Park, with the forefather of the National Park Service looking out over the Little Missouri River in North Dakota, and
- Fort Moultrie at Fort Sumter National Monument, featuring Sergeant William Jasper as he runs to protect the flag of South Carolina from the British
All of the proof coins above were minted in San Francisco, leaving the centerpiece of this set - the 30th Anniversary Silver Eagle Proof! Minted in West Point, this particular Silver Eagle has two major differences from all that came before it (and, as we've heard, after it)! First, the normally reeded edge has been replaced by a smooth edge. Second, the phrase "30th Anniversary" is engraved along the edge, marking this monumental numismatic moment! Altogether, you definitely have a set for the ages!
Your 2016 Limited Edition Silver Proof Set will arrive to you in original mint packaging, exactly in the same condition as it left the U.S. Mint. Since this is the Limited Edition Silver Proof Set's big return, we're already expecting pent-up collector demand to quickly snap up the 2016 edition. Add to that a mintage number that is going to be significantly less than the regular U.S. Silver Proof Set and the addition of the unique 2016 30th Anniversary Silver Eagle Proof and you have plenty of reasons to secure this Limited Edition Silver Proof Set while you have the chance! Don't wait another second -- get yours now!
