New for 2005, this remarkable collection of proof condition coins is reminiscent of the United States Mint's Prestige Set, issued in years past. In addition to proof versions of all United States Mint 2005-dated circulating coinage, this set also includes proof versions of both the Chief Justice John Marshall Silver Dollar and the Marine Corps 230th Anniversary Silver Dollar. Presented in unique and elegant packaging. This new, exclusive collection has a strict limit of no more than 50,000 sets.
Proof coins have a brilliant mirror-like finish. The term "proof" refers to a specialized minting process, which begins by manually feeding burnished coin planchets into presses fitted with specially polished dies. Each coin is struck multiple times so the softly frosted, yet detailed, images seem to float above a mirror-like field. This set includes a Certificate of Authenticity signed by the Director of the United States Mint.
