Bringing Back the Silver
1992 Proof & Mint Set Trio
In 1992, collectors were anxiously awaiting some special coins to celebrate the U.S. Mint's bicentennial. A commemorative medal was the only thing struck, but as a consolation - the U.S. Mint brought something special back to the table... 90% silver proof sets! It was the first time in 28 years the Mint produced these silver proofs; their last appearance was in 1964. In 1992, the dime, quarter and half dollar were struck out of .900 fine silver again - this time, at the San Francisco Mint.

Mirror, Mirror...
Who is the most striking of them all? Each proof is struck twice, giving each coin a razor sharp, frosted image. These proof coins are like miniature mirrors... you can actually see yourself. The silver takes it to another level! The brilliance of the silver highlights the deep cameo surfaces, creating a dramatic contrast.

A Year to Remember
It was unclear if the Mint would keep issuing these 90% silver proof sets, but collectors responded well and so, the silver proof set continued and is still available today! But 1992 was the first year that brought us back these brilliant silver proofs.

Silver Makes Three
Many of us commemorate and celebrate our favorite years by selecting our choice year's U.S. Mint Set and Proof Set pair to add to our collection. 1992's Silver Proof Set added a dimension... now we have Mint and Proof Set Trios to collect!

This 1992 Mint and Proof Set Trio contains:
1) 1992 Mint Set, which includes ten mint-fresh uncirculated coins: the cent, nickel, dime, quarter, and half dollar, one each from both the Philadelphia and Denver Mints.
2) 1992 Proof Set, which has five cameo proof coins struck at the San Francisco Mint: the cent, nickel, dime, quarter, and half dollar.
3) 1992 Silver Proof Set, which includes five sharp proofs from the San Francisco Mint: the cent and nickel, with the dime, quarter and half dollar struck in .900 fine silver.

All three sets are in their original government issued packaging.
