The Official Sets

Do you have a Proof coin and want to know its value? Leave a comment/question and I will do my best to find out the price and history for you.

Got two official mint sets a month ago. The first set are my scans of the U.S. Silver Proof Set and the second is a picture I took off the official government site of the U.S. Mint Set because the new packaging is almost impossible to scan.



I included a scan of the box the presidential proof dollars came in because it was such a nice looking box. The silver in these coins are only in the quarters, dime, and half dollar. All of them contain the S mint mark for San Francisco.

The mint sets are just normally struck coins that have not been placed into circulation. The new part is the vinyl like package that attaches the coins information to the coin. It makes it hard to display them and harder to lay flat. Hopefully a better package will be used in the future.

The is one mint set from Denver that has the D mintmark on each coin while the other is from Philadelphia and contains the P mint mark for all the coins except for the one cent because that one never carries the P mintmark.

14 coins for the first Proof set and 28 coins in the mint set but since I got it from the mint directly shipping and handling was a flat $4.95.

Here are the stats...
Type/Country: Silver Proof Set/United States
Year: 2007-S
Mintage: 875,050
Metal: Normal proof type except for the quarters, dimes & halves.
Value: $55.00 in box($10.00 increase since 2007)

Type/Country: Mint Set/United States
Year: 2007-D, 2007-P
Mintage: 895,628
Metal: Normal circulation type.
Value: $28.00 in box($6.00 increase since 2007)

Not to influence anyone but they do make a nice gift. Even if the person already has them it is like giving money...you know what I mean. They can usually be sold for a nice profit if you are in need of some quick cash.

And I think my euro seed flower 10 cent thing is proof. :D

Yes that is the way they were released into circulation. They are very common and in mint state it is only about $0.20 these days.

euro seed flower 10 cent thing is proof.
Again most countries issue circulating coins in a proof like state.

(whats a olympic quarter, Ice Hockey made of? and I think it might be proof, prooflike

I don't recall this coin. What country, year?

Happy Thanksgiving

Gothic Girl said...

Ahh I live in Canada. :). No need.

Well, my dad had it, and I asked him if I could keep it for my coin collection. Its a canadian olympic 2007 (made for 2010 olympics) quarter. Ice Hockey. its on the wikipedia. Took me a long time to notice that it was even mentioned.

To the US, Eat lots of turkey. yummm cranberry sauucceee

Man said...

Yeah now I know which coin you are talking about it was released in April.

They went straight to circulation and they were prooflike and made of nickel-copper plated steel.

It should stick to a magnet. If it does not stick then it is silver and a real proof.

Yes I know all about Canadian Thanksgiving and Martin Frobisher.
Belated best wishes to all.

what was the coin that sold for about $3.000.000

Man said...

coin that sold for about $3.000.000

A 1913 Liberty head nickel sold for that much in March of 2001.

1933 Gold Double Eagle, $7.5 million U.S. dollars, in 2002.

whoa thanx i think i have that coin

Anonymous said...

oh yeah and one more thing did it have a specific mint mark like how do i tell if i have the right one?

Man said...

With coins this valuable it is hard to tell if it is real. Many fakes exist, only five 1913 nickels exist but over a thousand fakes have shown up.

To tell if rare coins are real you need to pay a coin grading company like PCGS to verify it.

I have a couple of questions.
first I have a 1953 silver certificate with the blue seal and blue serial number and second I have a one dollar bill that looks like the print from the front is on top of the back including George Washington's face but he is facing the oposite direction and the federal reserve note print is also backwords. I'm not sure if this could be a misprint or just one bill was place on top of another before the ink was dry. thanks for any info you can give me

Depending on the denomination and serial number and condition it may be worth face value or thousands.

econd I have a one dollar bill that looks like the print from the front is on top of the back including George Washington's face but he is facing the oposite direction and the federal reserve note print is also backwords. I'm not sure if this could be a misprint or just one bill was place on top of another before the ink was dry.

Sounds like an Offset Printing error it's about $50.00.

thanks for the info on the 1953 silver certificate and the misprinted dollar bill. If i wanted to get more details about the actual value of both, how does one go about getting it
thanks again

Man said...

more details about the actual value of both

No matter who you contact you still need to give more information about your bills including sending pictures if you want a more exact value.

If there is a coin shop in your area bring it to them or go to a book store and compare your bills to the ones in the coin value books.

yes i have a 2001 penny the size of a dime and it has a siver rim. is it worth anything?...thanks

Man said...

2001 penny the size of a dime and it has a siver rim

Sounds like damage, a squished penny exposing the zinc core.
Try weighing it just in case.

Jason said...

it dont look squished. both sides look good the side all the way around is silver with a little bit of a ridge on both sides. i did another search and someone posted that it might be worth about 50.00. you havnt heard of anything like this???

Man said...

it dont look squished.

Again weighing would tell a good deal of info.

The "silver" is the zinc core.

"the size of a dime" is the part that leads me to think it that some one filed the edges.

Any cent minted inside the collar would be the size of a cent and can never be smaller.
