Why add this 1955 U.S. Mint Silver Proof Coin Set to your collection?

The U.S. Mint began to issue what is considered to be the modern version of the proof set in 1936. The set issued in 1955 is particularly notable for the change in packaging style that occurred during the year. Early year releases were boxed, while the later year sets were issued in a flat pack, which remained in use until 1964.

  • This set includes the five U.S. circulating coins of 1955 minted in gorgeous proof format.
  • Each coin was struck at the Philadelphia Mint.
  • The half dollar, quarter and dime are minted from .900 fine silver.
  • The 5-coin set is presented in its original Mint box.
  • Final mintage of the 1955 Silver Proof Set is reported to be 378,200.

Classic American Coinage Designs

The set includes a half dollar coin honoring Founding Father Benjamin Franklin, which was issued from 1848 until 1963, a Roosevelt Dime (introduced in 1946), and a Washington Quarter featuring the original 1932 rendition of the first U.S. President, paired with the heraldic eagle reverse that graced the coin through 1998. The final two coins in the set are a Jefferson Nickel, struck with the original obverse Thomas Jefferson portrait and Monticello reverse designs launched in 1938, and a Lincoln Cent with the original Wheat Ears reverse graphic that was featured on the coin from its introduction in 1909 until 1958.

Magnificently Minted Proof Set

This 1955 U.S. Mint Silver Proof Coin Set is available from ModernCoinMart in ungraded GEM Proof condition. Expect each of the five coins in the set to be superbly struck, featuring beautifully finished surfaces and exceptional eye appeal. The 1955 set is packaged in the original Mint box. Each coin is sealed in an individual cellophane sleeve, which are gathered and stapled together, then wrapped in tissue paper and housed in a tape-sealed cardboard box stamped simply "1955 Proof." This is the final release of the U.S. Mint Proof Set to be packaged in this manner.
