United States proof sets are beautiful and well-made. They represent the finest modern coinage art. Strong strikes, showing all details, with shimmering mirror-like fields and frosted devices, a proof set shows off coins at their best.
Consider a proof set for a meaningful gift. A special year could be chosen, a birth year, an anniversary, retirement, or another milestone.
There are many different types of sets to choose from. There are silver sets, Prestige sets, sets with commemoratives. A 2009 Lincoln set would be ideal for the history buff.
And if there is a collector on your gift list, an older set may be given. Sets containing a Franklin half dollar, or a 90% silver Kennedy half, are readily available and not too expensive.
Modern proof sets are lovely and collectible, something to put away and keep. A proof set makes a wonderful holiday gift.
