The U.S. Mint Proof Sets 1936 to Date

Proof coinage means special early samples of a coin issue, historically made for checking the dies and for archival purposes. Proof Sets and the proof coins they contain can usually be distinguished by their sharpness of detail, high edge and extremely brilliant mirror like surface. All proffs are originally sold by the U.S. Mint at a premium.

Proof coins were not struck during 1943-1949 or 1965-1967. Sets from 1936 through 1972 include the cent, nickel, dime, quarter and half dollar. From 1973 through 1981 the dollar was also included. The dollar is also included from 2000 to date. Beginning in 1999, proof sets also contain five different statehood quarters.

Today Proof sets are often struck in greater numbers specially for coin collectors. Preparation of a proof striking usually involved polishing of the dies. Modern U.S. proof coins are often treated with chemicals to make certain parts of the design take on a frosted appearance, and the fields taking on a mirror finish. Most proof coins are double struck.
