From The Mint: Part 2

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

The second half of my U.S. mint purchase were the annual sets. I got the Proof Set and the Uncirculated Mint Set which contains two sets. The sets are 14 coins from each branch of the mint. The proof coins are from San Francisco and the mint sets are from Philadelphia and Denver each of which has a face value 0f $6.91.

The cover of the mint sets are of each city of the coins origin taken at sunset.


You'll notice I still don't have the silver proof set because it is not yet available. They sell the quarters and dollars proofs separately but I rarely get those.

Another noteworthy thing is that two of the coins are not actively circulating. The Sacagawea Dollar and the Kennedy Half-Dollar. Not issued for circulation is the standard line used for these coins since 2001. There are some exceptions like for vending machines that a small shipment gets released but rarely for banks.

Does this mean it's impossible to find one in your change? Nope. I found several and these were from the Metrocard vending machines but some were in my normal change. I can only guess that collectors buy them by the bag full sift out the high grades and return the rest into circulation.
