Quarters Proof Sets

Quarters Proof Sets

With the launch of the 50 State Quarters Program in 1999, the Mint began marketing proof sets of just the five quarters released in the given year. These sets contain the same sleeve of coins included with the regular issue proof sets, but with their own unique packaging and certificate of authenticity. All issues were produced at the San Francisco Mint. As with all proof coins, the Quarters Proof Set coins start from highly polished blanks and are struck twice with specially prepared dies, resulting in incredibly sharp detail and mirror-like finish.

The State Quarters collection was completed in 2008. These sets are usually denoted as the 5-piece sets from a given year. In 2009, it was decided to honor Washington D.C. and the US Overseas Territories in a similar fashion, resulting in a six coin set for 2009. In 2010, the Mint began the America the Beautiful quarter series, also known as the National Parks quarters. There will be five new reverse designs each year depicting a national park or national site (one from each state, the federal district, and each territory).
