The United States Mint began sales of the 2011 Proof Set on January 11, 2011. The annual set includes 14 different coins across six denominations, struck in proof quality at the San Francisco Mint.
This year’s set is released earlier than recent years. The US Mint previously announced that they would begin sales of their most popular annual sets in January, to allow customers to update their collections earlier and purchase the sets for gift giving occasions throughout the year.
Each set includes the 2011-dated Lincoln Cent, Jefferson Nickel, Roosevelt Dime, five America the Beautiful Quarters, Kennedy Half Dollar, Native American Dollar, and four Presidential Dollars.
The 2011 America the Beautiful Quarters feature Gettysburg National Military Park in Pennsylvania, Glacier National Park in Montana, Olympic National Park in Washington, Vicksburg National Military Park in Mississippi, and Chickasaw National Recreation Area in Oklahoma. The 2011 Presidential Dollars honor the 17th to 20th Presidents, Andrew Johnson, Ulysses S. Grant, Rutherford B. Hayes, and James Garfield.
The fourteen coins are housed in three separate protective lenses and placed within an outer cardboard box. A certificate of authenticity is also included.
The 2011 United States Mint Proof Set is priced at $31.95 each, plus shipping and handing. Orders may be placed online at http://catalog.usmint.gov/
