2018-S United States Silver Proof Set NGC GEM First Day Of Issue
2018's Coins Brilliantly Shine in This U.S. Mint Silver Proof Set!
Each year, the United States Mint's Proof and Uncirculated coin sets make their way to hundreds of thousands of fans each year. However, for many collectors this is just the bellwether for the real treat to come. Released soon after the two sets make their debut is the annual Silver Proof Set. Harkening back to the U.S. Proof Sets produced between 1936 and 1964, these Silver Proof Sets feature Kennedy Half Dollars, Roosevelt Dimes and Washington Quarters struck in 90% fine silver.
Since 1992, these Silver Proof Sets have been produced with smaller mintages than their proof counterparts. Combine those limited production numbers along with the superb quality of their strikes and shimmering beauty of their silver and you can see why these sets are the collectors' choice!
2018's Hits, All in One Place!
So, what's in this year's set? The first acrylic lens starts with stunning proof versions of the standard Lincoln Cent and Jefferson Nickel joined by the year's Native American Dollar featuring legendary Olympian and football star Jim Thorpe. Then this set breaks away from the pack with proof versions of the Roosevelt Dime and Kennedy Half-Dollar, each struck in 90% fine silver. The second acrylic lens in your 2018 Silver Proof Set displays all five of the year's America the Beautiful Quarters, also struck in 90% fine silver, featuring:
- The wonders of Michigan's Pictured Rocks National Lakeshore, patiently carved by time and water
- The picturesque and alluring Apostle Islands National Lakeshore in Wisconsin
- The isolated serenity and amazing wildlife of Minnesota's Voyageurs National Park
- Cumberland Island National Seashore, located on Georgia's largest and southernmost barrier island, and
- The crucial habitat of Rhode Island's Block Island National Wildlife Refuge, home to sandy shores and breathtaking birds.
Struck in San Francisco, Ready For Your Collection!
In addition, since each set is struck in proof condition at the San Francisco Mint using specially polished dies and selected planchets, all of your proofs will feature the "S" mintmark. As a further testament to their quality and beauty, each has been certified by the Numismatic Guaranty Corporation (NGC) as being a First Day of Issue (FDI), independent authentication that your set was released by the mint during the premier day of the series' issue.
As mentioned earlier, these sets are produced in markedly lower mintages than the more widely available Proof Sets. Now that they've been released from the U.S. Mint, don't wait another moment – secure a U.S. Mint Silver Proof Set for your collection today!
