NGC Special Label for San Francisco Silver Reverse Proof Set

The coins will be encapsulated with a special pedigree and San Francisco label at no additional charge.

The US Mint opened sales of the 2018 San Francisco Silver Reverse Proof Sets on July 23.

The sets celebrate the 50th anniversary of the San Francisco Mint's production of US Mint proof coinage. Only 200,000 of these sets will be offered.

Struck at the San Francisco Mint, the set includes a reverse proof version of every coin the US Mint is releasing for general circulation in 2018: a cent, nickel, dime, five America the Beautiful quarters, half dollar and dollar. The dime, quarters and half dollar are struck in 90 percent silver.

NGC will recognize coins from this set with a special Silver Reverse Proof Set pedigree on the NGC certification label. Coins with this pedigree will be listed separately in the NGC Census.

The NGC San Francisco Cable Car Label, which shows one of the city's iconic trolleys, will be the default label for these coins for no additional fee.

Coins received by NGC within the first 30 days of their release are eligible for NGC's popular Early Releases® and First Releases® designations.
