What exactly is the difference between a Year Coin Set and a Proof Set?
A "proof" coin is a specimen striking for presentation, souvenir, exhibition, or numismatic purposes, but not intended for general circulation. Proof coins prior to 1968 were struck only at the Philadelphia mint except in a few rare instances in which presentation pieces were made at branch mints. Current proof sets are made at San Francisco and West Point. Proof sets prior to 1956 demand a high collector price so our coin staff custom makes "Year Coin Sets". All coins dated from 1940 - 1964 are the highest quality circulating coins at an affordable price. Coins dated 1965 to present are uncirculated condition.
Add a Birth Year Greeting Card or a Birth Year DVD & Card or a Birth Year Trivia Playing Card Deck... a great compliment to our year sets.
