2018 San Francisco Mint
Silver Reverse Proof Set™
The story of the San Francisco Mint is special. It’s a story that began with the California gold rush of the 1850s, nearly ended with the great earthquake and fire of 1906, and continues today. This Mint primarily produces proof coins and sets, but has struck its share of notable coins, including the 1909 “S” Mint mark VDB cent, some silver coins, and its own gold and silver commemorative coins in 2006.
This iconic West Coast Mint’s latest “story” is one that celebrates its 50th anniversary of producing proof coins. To commemorate this milestone, we are releasing the stunning United States Mint Silver Reverse Proof Set, with a limited mintage of 200,000. It includes the same 10 coins featured in the 2018 United States Mint Silver Proof Set®, with seven of the coins minted in 90 percent silver. But what makes this set unique is the beautiful reverse proof finish on all of the coins. The result is a magnificent effect where the reverse proof coins’ shiny design elements and frosted backgrounds create a stunning contrast. Reverse proof coins were first produced by the U.S. Mint in 2006, but the 2018 San Francisco Mint Silver Reverse Proof Set will contain the first-ever penny, nickel and quarters in this finish. Each coin bears the “S” mint mark reflecting its striking at the San Francisco Mint, and the set is accompanied by a Certificate of Authenticity.
