1980-S United States Clad Proof Set
1980-S US Mint Proof Coin Set includes six Gem Proof coins - cent through dollar - from the San Francisco Mint. The United States Mint has created annual sets of uncirculated coins for collectors widely known as Mint Sets since 1947. The program was introduced to give coin collectors the opportunity to acquire all denominations that were released into circulation per year, per coinage issue. Unlike the standard sets, Proof Sets are exclusively for collectors and struck twice for optimum detail using the US Mint’s specially prepared planchets (blanks) and dies. 1980-S US Mint Proof Coin Set is notable because it is the first in the series to add the small sized Susan B. Anthony Dollar, which was introduced the previous year.
1980-S US Mint Proof Coin Set includes the following GEM proof coins:
1980-S Mint Lincoln Cent
1980- S Mint Jefferson Nickel
1980-S Mint Roosevelt Dime
1980- S Mint Washington Quarter
1980-S Kennedy Half Dollar
1980- S Susan B. Anthony Dollar
The total mintage for the set was at 3,554,806 (less than the previous year) and issued by the San Francisco Mint. This 1980-S US Mint Proof Coin Set comes in original government packaging.

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.
The United States Mint Proof Coins represent the finest coinage specimens produced in terms of overall quality and eye appeal. A proof coin is a specially made coin distinguished by sharpness of detail, usually with brilliant mirror-like surfaces.
