Why buy this 1955 U.S. Silver Coin Proof Set?

Silver Proof Sets from the US Mint offer collectors the opportunity to see the designs of American coins issued for circulation in their best light. This set consists of five coins, one of each of the coins that were issued for circulation in 1955. All of the coins in this set have proof finishes, and three of them, the Roosevelt Dime, the Washington Quarter, and the Franklin Half Dollar, were struck from .900 fine silver. The other two coins are the Jefferson Nickel and the Lincoln Cent. 378,200 of these sets were struck at the Philadelphia Mint. The coins in this set come in a plastic holder and remain in GEM Proof condition.

Classic American Leader Designs

The five coins in this set share very similar obverse designs. Each one features a portrait of a famous American leader and the inscriptions "IN GOD WE TRUST," "LIBERTY," and the date, "1955." Three of the leaders, Presidents Washington, Jefferson, and Roosevelt, face left, and two, President Abraham Lincoln and Benjamin Franklin, face right.

The reverses are more divergent, though the inscriptions are similar. The inscriptions on each include "UNITED STATES OF AMERICA," "E PLURIBUS UNUM" (From many, one), and the coin's respective face value. Two of the designs, the Liberty Bell on the Franklin Half Dollar and Monticello on the Jefferson Nickel, relate closely to the leaders on the obverse. The dime has two branches, one oak and one laurel, flanking a torch. Sheaves of wheat rise along the sides of the rim on the penny. On the quarter, an eagle is perched upon a bundle of arrows above an open wreath.
