Want to add to your current coin collection? Or are you looking to start a coin collection? US Mint Proof Sets are a simple and cost effective way to accomplish that goal. What better way to get a high-quality proof condition example of each denomination of coin minted in a given year. The 2017 Proof Set has 10 coins, a face value of $2.91 and an original issue price of $26.95. It was minted at the US Mint in San Francisco and has an S mint mark. Provident Metals is currently offering the 2017 US Mint Proof Set for purchase online.
The coins in the 2017 Proof Sets are packaged in 2 individual plastic cases and placed into a cardboard outer box. The front of the outer box is decorated with an image of the Washington Monument at sunset while the back of the box has images of the 5 national parks and the 5 coins included in the set. This has remained similar to the packaging of recent years.
The 2017 Proof Set contains 2 sets of coins the eighth annual release of the America the Beautiful Quarters Program set and the regular Proof coin set.
National parks and other national sites are depicted as part of the America the Beautiful Quarters Program. It includes 56 quarters, of which 5 new quarters are included in each years Proof Sets. In 2017, the parks featured are the Effigy Mounds National Monument in Iowa, the Frederick Douglass National Historic Site in Washington DC, the Ozark National Scenic Riverways in Missouri, Ellis Island in New Jersey, and the George Rogers Clark National Historical Park in Indiana.
One each of the Lincoln Cent, Jefferson Nickel, Roosevelt Dime, and Kennedy Half Dollar are regularly part of the Proof Set. A Native American Dollar series coin is also included. The 2017 Native American Dollar coin continues to feature the obverse design of Sacagawea carrying her infant son, Jean Baptiste. Its reverse design features a profile of Sequoyah, the inventor of the Cherokee Syllabary. This language was adopted by the Cherokee Nation, and within months, many of the Cherokee had become literate.
Once the mintage of Proof Sets passed the 1 million mark in 1957, they remained above that level (with one exception in 1958) until 2012. In fact, many of those years were even above the 3 and 4 million mark. However, since 2011, sales have failed to reach the 1 million mark, with 2017 sales only reaching 568,681 sets. Beyond the regular cent/nickel/dime/quarter/half dollar, the Proof Sets have rotated in various other specialty sets, such as the Presidential Dollar Program, the America the Beautiful Quarters Program, and the Native American Dollar Program. In spite of what the lower sales might indicate, interest in the Proof Sets remains strong among coin collectors.
