The proof coins in this set were struck at the San Francisco Mint.

The term "Proof" refers to a method of manufacture and NOT the condition of a coin. Proof coins can usually be distinguished by their sharpness of detail, high wire edge, and extremely brilliant - mirror like surface.

Proof coins are made from highly polished dies. The coinage blanks are also polished and cleaned. They are hand fed into a coinage press one at a time, with each blank receiving 2 or more strikes from the dies to bring up sharp - high relief details. It is done at slow speeds with extra pressure.

Finished Proofs are individually inspected and handled by gloves or tongs prior to being placed in sonically sealed plastic cases. This item will ship to you in a beautifully bound, three color booklet. The front cover is full gold foil embossed with the years 1776-1976. The inside indicates the title of the item along with the placment of all 3 coins.

All Proofs are originally sold by the United States Mint at a premium.
