Ten Years Of Proof Sets (1960-69)

 E-mail this product to a friend


This collection features all of the regular U.S. Proof Sets from 1960 to 1969, as well as the Special Mint Sets from 1965-1967 when no regular Proof Sets were made. (The Special Mint Sets were issued by the U.S. Mint and feature each year’s highest quality coins.) That’s a full decade of coinage history with a total of 50 different coins – the complete set of Proof coins from the 1960’s. What’s more, 20 of the coins were struck in silver and each coin set includes at least one silver coin.

There are many key coins and sets in this collection, including:
• 1960-1963 Proof Sets that include the last four Franklin Silver Half Dollars, as well as Roosevelt Dimes and Washington Quarters struck in 90% silver.
• 1964 Proof Set that is one of the most important in history. It has the first-ever Kennedy Silver Half Dollar. This is a key coin in modern U.S. coinage. The coin was struck as a memorial to President John F. Kennedy, who was assassinated in November 1963. Just as important, it proved to be the first and only circulating Kennedy Half Dollar coin struck in 90% silver. This set also has the last Roosevelt Dime and Washington Quarter struck in silver. What’s more, the 1964 Proof Set was the last to be minted at the Philadelphia Mint; all later Proof sets were struck at the San Francisco Mint (and have the “S” mint mark).
• 1965 Special Mint Set that includes the first 40% silver coin in U.S. history (Kennedy Half Dollar).
• 1965-1967 Special Mint Sets and 1968-1969 Proof Sets that include Kennedy Half Dollars minted in 40% silver.

Proof Sets are becoming rarer every day, and older Proof Sets can cost $100’s each. Many original Proof Sets have been broken up over the years for the individual coins, leaving fewer and fewer intact sets. But each set in this collection is in the original U.S. Mint packaging. They are fully complete, and the coins have never been touched. This is very important when collecting Proof Sets.

In addition being a complete coin set, this collection also symbolizes the history of the 1960’s, from the Kennedy years to the first manned moon landing. Other important events from the decade include the Civil Rights movement, America’s first man in space, Woodstock, the Cuban missile crisis, the Vietnam War, the first Super Bowl, and the Beatles.
