Posted on 2/12/2013
[Washington, DC] — The 2013 United States Mint Proof Set is scheduled for release on March 28, 2013. The set includes 14 coins, each bearing the “S” mint mark of the United States Mint at San Francisco. The coins included in this set are:
- (5) United States Mint America the Beautiful Quarters®
- (4) Presidential $1 Coins
- (1) Native American $1 Coin
- (1) Kennedy half-dollar
- (1) Roosevelt dime
- (1) Jefferson five-cent coin
- (1) Lincoln cent
Unlike circulating coins, proof coins display brilliant backgrounds, with frosted, sculpted foregrounds. Proof coins receive the highest quality strike possible and can be distinguished by their sharpness of detail and brilliant, mirror-like surface. The coins are then placed in presentation lenses to showcase and preserve their exceptional finish.
