1955 Proof Set
U.S. Mint Proof Sets are considered to be the finest examples of U.S. coinage available and are perfect for recognizing special occasions. Whether it’s a birthday, an anniversary, a wedding, or even to celebrate a historical event or the founding of company, these coins make a unique and lasting impression.
Proof coins are struck from specially selected and polished planchets (coin blanks). The dies used to strike these coins are specially prepared as well and highly polished. The planchets are hand fed into the striking press and special care is taken during the handling and packaging of the proof coins. Proof coins are struck twice to ensure an increased sharpness in detail. The coins also exhibit a mirror finish because of the polished die and planchet.
The 1955 U.S. Mint Proof Set comes in like new condition, with the original mint manila envelope. The set includes the cent, nickel, dime, quarter and half dollar in the original plastic sleeve packaging. The Franklin Half Dollar, Roosevelt Dime and Washington Quarter are struck in 90% silver
