Description
 
1992 marked the 200th anniversary of the US Mint.


As part of the celebration, the US Mint released Silver Proof Sets for the 1st time since 1964. This set is the 1998 Silver Premier Proof Set. The Premier Silver Proof set was the 1st high end or deluxe presentation set ever released by the United States Mint. The Silver Premier series was issued for only 7 years. (1992 through 1998.)

The 1992 Silver Premier Proof Set contains 5 coins:
  • Lincoln Cent
  • Jefferson Nickel
  • Silver Roosevelt Dime
  • Silver Washington Quarter
  • Silver Kennedy Half Dollar





  • The Dime, Quarter and Half Dollar in this set were struck out of .900 fine Silver. All of the proof coins in this set were struck at the San Francisco Mint.

    The term "Proof" refers to a method of manufacturing 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 and 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. This process is done at low speeds with extra pressure. Finished Proofs are individually inspected and handled by gloves or tongs prior to being placed in sonically sealed plastic cases. All Proofs are originally sold by the United States Mint at a premium.
