Description

The United States Mint certifies that this Silver Proof Set of current United States circulating coinage was
produced and packaged at the United States Mint, San Francisco, California. Each coin bears the mintmark
*S” designation of the facility. The half-dollar, quarter and dime are composed of coin silver, the nickel
of cupro-nickel and the cent of copper-plated zinc.
United States proof coins are produced from carefully selected planchets, or coin blanks, that have been
burnished to a high luster. The polished blanks, which are carefully handled to minimize scratches and abra-
sions, are struck on specially adapted coining presses. Each coin is struck at least twice to bring forth the
most minute detail with remarkable clarity.
The surfaces of the coinage dies used for striking proof coins are meticulously processed to create a frosted
appearance of the image on the die. The background surface is polished and buffed to a mirror-like finish.
The dies are also buffed during the striking process.
The finished coin, with its frosted cameo image on a mirror-like field, is carefully inspected--with gloved
hands to protect its surface--before being assembled into sets. The proof coins are then placed in transparent
presentation cases.
Proof coins, referred to as "Master Coins” in the early days of the Mint, were originally produced to
"prove the correctness of the dies." These first pieces, struck with extra care and bearing a high polish, were
reserved for the Mint's Cabinet of Coins Collection and sometimes used for special presentations. They were
first offered for sale to the public around 1858 and are produced under the authority of Section 5111 (a)(3),
Title 31 of the United States Code. Public Law 101-585, signed on November 15, 1990, amended Title 31
to authorize sale of these special Silver Proof Sets to the public.
Silver proof coins are a supplemental program of the United States Mint, produced at no net cost to the
government, with profits deposited to the General Fund of the Treasury of the United States.
