collectors, there has always been a certain appeal to the proof set. When deciding
to be a proof set collector, one should always consider the state of the collectible
coin market as a whole. The proof set value has always been a great indicator
of the numismatic hobby, altogether. When the proof set has an increasing value,
so will the rest of the collectibles coins within the hobby. If the proof set
is declining in value, so too are the rest of the collectible coins. Using this
as a guide, most modern proof sets are inexpensive enough for just about anybody
to get into a serious collection of these coins without breaking the bank. If
their value goes down, there won't be much money lost.
set is a set of coins made each year by the United States and other governments
showcasing their type coins. A proof set usually comes with every denomination
coin minted in that year. A proof coin is a coin made with highly polished dies
which creates a mirror effect in the field of a coin while leaving a nice satin
finish on any raised portion of the coin. The first official proof set made
by the United States came in 1858. These coins were kept together but were not
packaged together. A proof set of this age is quite valuable and very hard to
come by as they have been pieced out by collectors over the many decades since
their release. The first modern American proof set was minted in 1936 and came
in a nondescript brown box.
set is also very valuable and the subsequent years up until World War II produced
proof sets that can carry quite a premium as well. After a short six year hiatus
of minting a proof set of any kind, the United States returned to minting the
proof set with the release of the 1950 proof set. The years of 1965 to 1967
also didn't see the release of a proof set of any kind. These were the last
years the United States did not release a proof set.
set of the 21st century is loaded with several coins as the mints have ramped
up production of differently designed coins and variations within each year.
For example, the 2009 proof set come with 18 different coins representing all
the variations of 100 year anniversary Lincoln cents, presidential dollars and
state quarters as well as the regular release coins of that year. If you are
