One of the simpler ways to collect coins from the United States Mint is with the purchase of US Mint Sets. First introduced in 1936, these sets are traditionally available as standard or proof sets, with the latter offering beautiful visual finishes. Today, you have the chance to buy 1988 US Mint Proof Sets online from Provident Metals.


  • Arrives with a hard plastic case from the mint!
  • Features five circulation US coins!
  • Proof strikes!
  • The face values are in US dollars.
  • Designs on the obverse and reverse vary by coin.
  • Please bear in mind the case may show wear and tear, but all coins remain in good overall condition.

The first US Mint Sets introduced in 1936 offered collectors the chance to own five coins struck by the US Mint that were never put into circulation. The coins in those early sets included the penny, nickel, dime, quarter, and half dollar. In the future, when dollar coins were issued, they were included in the sets, but US dollar coining was sporadic in the 1970s and 1990s.


Included in these 1988 US Mint Proof Sets are the Lincoln Penny, Jefferson Nickel, Roosevelt Dime, Washington Quarter, and the Kennedy Half Dollar. These coins were released into circulation with their current designs, or at least one of the current design elements, in 1909, 1938, 1946, 1932, and 1964, respectively.


These coins represent the most common denominations in American currency. While other denomonations of coinage have historically been used since the 1790s, these five have stood the test of time over the last 150 years as regular denominations produced annually.


Your 1988 US Mint Proof Set is available to purchase in a hard plastic case. This case protects the coins and, though the case may show signs of wear and tear, all of the coins inside remain in good condition.
