The 2008 United States Mint Proof Set® contains 14 coins, each bearing the “S” mint mark of the United States Mint at San Francisco. Included in this set are four Presidential $1 Coins honoring the past Presidents of the United States: James Monroe, John Quincy Adams, Andrew Jackson and Martin Van Buren, the final five quarters from the 50 State Quarters® Program for the year: Oklahoma, New Mexico, Arizona, Alaska and Hawaii, as well as the Lincoln cent, the Jefferson nickel, the Roosevelt dime, the Kennedy half-dollar, and the Golden Dollar featuring Sacagawea.
United States Mint proof coins are extraordinarily brilliant, with sharp relief and a mirror-like background. Their frosted, sculpted foregrounds give them a special cameo effect. Proof blanks are specially treated, polished and cleaned to ensure high quality strikes. The blanks are then fed into presses fitted with hand-polished dies and struck at least twice to ensure sharp relief. The coins are then packaged in presentation cases to showcase and maintain their exceptional finish.
The United States Mint Proof Set is also available on the United States Mint’s Online Subscription Program. Visit our Subscription page for more information.
