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.
Issued since 1909, the Lincoln Cent has been a mainstay of American currency. Now, the U.S Mint is issuing three new cents that bear the West Point Mint’s “W” mint mark, the first of their kind!
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.
