The United States Mint has opened sales for the 2014 Limited Edition Silver Proof Set. The annual set brings together 90% silver proof coins and the popular Proof American Silver Eagle within a specially packaged set.
The release of the product which features 2014-dated coins was delayed due to packaging improvements the Mint implemented based on returns for the 2013 set. The Mint indicated that the process took longer than expected and the sets could not be assembled until this month. Despite the late release, all of the coins included in the set were produced during 2014.
Each 2014 Limited Edition Silver Proof Set contains the following coins:
- 2014 Silver Proof Roosevelt Dime – This coin is struck in 90% silver at the San Francisco Mint and bears the “S” mint mark.
- Five 2014 Silver Proof America the Beautiful Quarters – These coins are struck in 90% silver at the San Francisco Mint and bear the “S” mint mark. The reverse designs of the quarters feature Great Smoky Mountains National Park, Shenandoah National Park, Arches National Park, Great Sand Dunes National Park, and Everglades National Park.
- 2014 Silver Proof Kennedy Half Dollar – This coin is struck in 90% silver at the San Francisco Mint and bears the “S” mint mark.
- 2014 Proof American Silver Eagle – This coin is struck in one ounce of 99.9% silver at the West Point Mint and bears the “W” mint mark.
The eight coins of the set are packaged in a protective lens and presentation case. Production of the set is limited to 50,000 units, although the coins have also been available within other numismatic products. There is no household ordering limit imposed.
The 2014 Limited Edition Silver Proof Set is priced at $139.95 plus applicable shipping and handling. For more information or to place an order, please visit http://catalog.usmint.gov/
