1998-S US Mint Clad Proof Coin Set GEM Proof in Original Mint Packaging
This beautifully displayed collection is the final assortment to include the five traditional coins: the Lincoln Cent, Jefferson Nickel, Roosevelt Dime, Washington Quarter and the Kennedy Half Dollar. Each coin was minted at the San Francisco (S) Mint and remains in genuine proof condition. Additionally, this proof coin set is delivered to you in its original Mint packaging - just another reason why this 1998 coin set is an eye-catching piece for your collection.
1998 was a year full of innovation and technological advancements that would forever change the way we live our lives. It was a year where the New York Yankees, Denver Broncos and Chicago Bulls dominated their sport. A year when the, now mega tech-mogul, Apple, first released their "Think Different" mantra and when Aviation company, JetBlue, was just "getting off the ground." 1998 hosted the creation of the first-ever MP3 player and the impeachment hearing of President Bill Clinton following his affair with Monica Lewinsky.
For all of these jaw-dropping, creative and history-changing events, 1998 was certainly a year for the books. This mint clad proof coin set represents each and every one of these historical happenings in its limited edition green-themed format.
Design of the 1998-S US Mint Clad Proof Coin Set GEM Proof
Each of the five coins that you receive in this clad proof set feature the traditional designs that the U.S. has come to know and love as a country. The Lincoln Cent's obverse side strongly displays the profile imagery created by Victor David Brenner in 1909 of President Lincoln, while the reverse side shows the great detail of the Lincoln Memorial with the words, "E PLURIBUS UNUM."
From the Jefferson Nickel to the Kennedy Half Dollar, each of the five coins follow suit with their classic inscriptions and are the last minted year to be displayed on a green-themed packaging.
