About this Product
First Decade of San Francisco Proof Sets

What a Value!
Proof Sets are not only the most popular US Mint issues; they are also the highest quality coins released every year. Proofs are highly polished and double struck, resulting in a razor sharp, mirror image surface.

The First Decade - 1968 to 1977
The US Mint moved its yearly proof set production from Philadelphia to San Francisco in 1968. Technology improvements at the Philadelphia & Denver Mints helped increase the number of coins that could be released for circulation. With this development, striking proof issues was now the NEW mission at the San Francisco Mint. The US Mint also upgraded the proof set presentation, showcasing every set in a hard protective plastic lens.

55 Proof Coins
This decade includes 10 Cents, 10 Nickels, 10 Dimes, 10 Quarters, 10 half Dollars, and 5 Eisenhower Dollars... including the special Bicentennial issues from 1976! The US Mint issued special designs featuring a dual date (1776 - 1976) on the Quarter, Half Dollar and Dollar for the Bicentennial celebration... these coins are in both the 1975 and 1976 proof sets.

Value in Every way!
Any way you look at this opportunity... it's a great deal! Our competition is selling the 10 individual proof Kennedy Half Dollars for over $100... they are also selling the five Eisenhower Dollars for over $100... so they are at $200 without counting the other 40 proof coins in the sets. We are at $99.95... that's under $10 a set!
