Why Add This 1997-S U.S. Mint Clad Proof Set in Original Mint Packaging to Your Collection?
The 1997 U.S. proof set was very popular when it was sold by the Mint, but it had one of the lower production figures among clad proof sets from the 90s. Less than 2,000,000 of these sets were produced. The coins in this set were struck at the San Francisco Mint. They are in GEM proof condition, although it is possible that some signs of age may be visible.
There are 5 coins in the 1997-S clad U.S. proof set. The largest in both size and denomination is the Kennedy half. In descending order, this set also includes a Washington quarter, Roosevelt dime, Jefferson nickel, and Lincoln cent. Since these coins were struck at the San Francisco Mint the “S” Mint mark can be seen on them.
These sets were purchased from secondary sources. Since this 1997-S U.S. proof set is still in its original packaging it may show signs of wear or age. The coins are protected by a hard plastic case that also allows them to be viewed clearly and easily.
There’s always room for another proof set, order this 1997-S U.S. Mint clad proof set today.

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.
