Why order this 6-Piece U.S. Proof 1973-1978-S Set Black Box Collection Set?
Patriotic Americans, whether collectors or not, are sure to appreciate this 1973-1978-S Collection of Proof Sets. These sets come from the only six years in which U.S Proof Sets included Eisenhower Silver Dollars. They also include the two bicentennial issues, 1975 and 1976, in which the three largest coins in the set featured two-year only designs that celebrated the occasion. These unique inclusions make this six year set particularly attractive. All of the coins in this set were struck at the San Francisco Mint and bear "S" mint marks.
Patriotic Bicentennial Designs
Most of the coins in these sets feature designs that are familiar to most collectors, including those too young to have used the coins in their years of issue, because they remained on American coinage for so long after these years. Perhaps the most notable exception are the Eisenhower Dollars, which were no longer issued after 1978. Celebrating a General and President, all but the bicentennial Eisenhower dollars feature an eagle carrying an olive branch as it landed on the moon on the reverse. The bicentennial issues also pays tribute to the moon landing by including the moon in the background behind the Liberty Bell.
The Washington Quarter and the Kennedy Half Dollar also featured unique designs for the bicentennial. The quarter features a Colonial drummer and a torch that was encircled by thirteen stars. The half dollar bicentennial reverses bear an image of Philadelphia's Independence Hall next to the inscription "200 YEARS OF FREEDOM."

The U.S mint began releasing annual proof sets in 1936 that included one proof of each coin that was struck for circulation that year. The practice continues to this day with many collectors considering the annual proof set a ‘must get’ every year.
