1997-S Proof Set

Finally, after several years of decline, sales of Proof Sets perked back up in 1997, coming close to the 2 million mark. Surprisingly, the 1997-S Proof Set sells for three times the 1996-S Proof Set, even though the 1996-S Proof Set is scarcer. 1997 was the last year of the Prestige Set, which had suffered a serious loss of popularity over the years.

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 1997-S Proof Set were intended to have a Cameo or Deep Cameo Finish.

Mintage: 1,975,000 sets

Original packaging: The coins of the 1997-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 • 1997." The new collector might ask, "Is this a Mint Set or a Proof Set?"
