US Mint Proof Sets have been available from the United States Mint since roughly the 1930s. The contents of these sets have varied with time based on programs currently in production at the US Mint. In the 21st century, these sets feature the circulation coins of the United States, as well as coins from proof quarter programs and other collectible sets. One of the key facets of a US Mint Proof Set is the strike of the coins. Each coin is a proof specimen with frosted designs and mirrored fields.
All of these 2016 Silver US Mint Proof Sets come to you with plastic holders for the various coins, a themed shipper, and a Certificate of Authenticity. In particular, this set comes with five circulation coins struck in proof and packaged together, all five 2016 Proof ATB Quarters packaged together, and three US Presidential Dollar coins packaged together. In all, there are three separate plastic holders.
Please bear in mind that while the coins in this set are in good overall condition, it is possible for the packaging to show signs of wear and tear. Additionally, some sets may have missing pieces of packaging and lack items such as the themed shipper or the COA.
On the obverse and reverse of the coins in the 2016 Silver US Mint Proof Set, you will find various effigies of American figures as well as moments from American history. For example, the circulation coins feature the images of Abraham Lincoln, Thomas Jefferson, Franklin D. Roosevelt, John F. Kennedy, and Sacagawea. The Presidential Dollars include busts of Richard Nixon, Gerald Ford, and Ronald Reagan. The 2016 ATB Quarters have designs honoring the sites chosen for that date mark in that series. The reverse of all the coins have varying designs.
There are seven coins in this set that are not only proof specimens, but also silver coins. The Roosevelt Dime, Kennedy Half Dollar, and all five 2016 Proof ATB Quarters have 90% silver content and 10% copper, per coin.
