US Silver Proof sets make an excellent silver bullion investment as well as being extremely collectable.
Silver Proof sets from Provident Metals make an excellent manner of collecting U.S. coins. Prepackaged U.S collector coin sets usually come in either ‘Mint Sets’ or ‘Proof Sets’. The Silver Proof Sets include coins that have gone through a special minting process that includes polishing the dies, making them the most beautiful coins with a mirrored finish as possible. Silver Proof coins have the most exquisite of detail and exhibit an extremely brilliant mirror-like finish. Silver Proof sets can either be minted of a composition metal similar to the coins we use to make purchases in our everyday lives or they can be made from a precious metal. With the exception of the penny and nickle coins the Silver Proof Sets are made of 90% pure Silver.
Silver Proof sets for a specific year will include all the coins minted in that year unless stated otherwise and come in original mint packaging. Not only do Silver Proof Sets derive their value from historical value, collector value due to rarity, and their proof like finish, but added to that is their value as a precious metal proof set. Prices offered by Provident Metals usually vary depending on the number of coins in the set and more particularly on their rarity. For example the ‘1992 S Silver Proof Set’ had a mintage of approximately 1 milllion sets, yet the ‘1995 S Silver Proof Sets with the same number of coins but with half the number of sets minted is considerably more valuable.Silver Proof sets provide the ultimate in quality and value for those interested in collecting coin sets.
