The U.S. Mint will release a limited-edition eight-coin silver Proof set on October 18. The 2018-dated set includes one Roosevelt dime, five different America the Beautiful quarters, one Kennedy half dollar and one American Silver Eagle $1 coin. Each coin features an “S” mint mark signifying that they were struck at the San Francisco Mint.
Only 50,000 limited edition silver Proof sets will be sold, and the U.S. Mint has announced a limit of two per household.
