 E-mail this product to a friend


The San Francisco Mint started minting Proof coins in 1968; previously, Proof coins were made at the Philadelphia Mint. Proofs are the highest quality U.S. coins.

Each coin is struck multiple times under high pressure to bring out the three-dimensional designs and mirror-like background.

Proof coins are never released into circulation but are made exclusively
for collectors. The coins are not available individually from the Mint but only in official U.S. Proof Sets. This collection includes one Proof Quarter from each decade it was struck at the San Francisco Mint.

All coins from San Francisco feature the coveted "S" mint mark. The "S" mint mark appears to the right of the ribbon in George Washington's hair on the obverse of the coin.
There are five coins - one from the 1960's, 1970's, 1980's, 1990's, and 2000's.

The 1960's coin is dated 1968 or 1969 and is one of the first-ever Proof Quarters struck at the San Francisco Mint. The 2000's coin is a State Quarter.

The first Washington Quarter was minted in 1932 to commemorate the 200th anniversary of George Washington's birth. One side shows a portrait of Washington.

The other side of 1960's-1990's coins features an eagle; the 2000's coin is a one-time-only design for the State Quarters series.

Each coin is protected in a clear capsule and the set is displayed in a custom case with a Certificate of Authenticity.

There are five coins in the collection; each coin was struck in copper-nickel
(.750 copper and .250 nickel bonded to an inner core of pure copper).
