Understanding Proof Sets

Coin Collection

One of the most popular ways for coin enthusiasts to build their collections is through the purchase of proof sets. The appreciation for these unique coins comes primarily from the craftsmanship with which they are made. Each proof coin starts out as a planchet that is struck numerous times before being polished, leaving a detailed, shiny, and attractive end result. Once the coins have been packaged into hard, protective plastic, they are ready to be sold as a set to eager numismatics. Popular proof sets include 1975 Bicentennial sets and 1992 Silver Premier sets.
