First Day of Issue 2016 United States Mint Proof Set

The ultimate standard in coins is the proof—a gleaming coin with details so sharp and luster so dazzling that one instantly recognizes it as the pinnacle of minting perfection. Proof coins are exceptional. The mint prepares special, highly polished planchets, engraves detailed dies and strikes each coin two or more times to bring out all the exquisite design details and the coin's frosted and mirrored surfaces. The coins are then inspected individually, with mint employees rejecting any coins with flaws. After packaging to protect the coins, the coins leave the mint and into the hands of collectors. Proof Sets are the only way to get yearly coins in each denomination with unparalleled craftsmanship.

Each year, Americans scramble to get their share of the limited edition Proof Sets. Now we’re making the 2016 sets available to you!

The 13-piece 2016 U.S. proof set features America the Beautiful designs for Shawnee National Forest in Illinois, Cumberland Gap National Historic Park in Kentucky, Harpers Ferry National Historical Park in West Virginia, Theodore Roosevelt National Park in North Dakota, and Fort Moultrie at Fort Sumter National Monument in South Carolina. In addition, presidential dollars: Nixon, Ford, and Reagan. Also included are the Lincoln Cent, Jefferson Nickel, Roosevelt Dime, Kennedy Half-Dollar and Native American Dollar – all dated 2016.  Each set will is housed in official U.S. Mint packaging and include an official COA from the U.S. Mint and is officially certified as one of the extremely limited the First Day of Issue sets by Numismatic Guaranty Corporation (NGC). Only 1,000 have been issued.
