Silver Proof Sets
U.S Silver Proof Sets
When the Mint makes a proof coin, one that many collectors consider the ultimate coin, they do several things differently than when they strike a regular or "business" strike coin that one would get at the bank.

The planchet, or round metal that is to become the coin, is polished to a mirror finish. Then the die (the item with the design engraved on it that puts the design on the coin) is sandblasted. This gives it a rough surface.

We believe that as older original sets are "broken up" for the single coins to be put into colllector's sets, that nice original Proof Sets will become scarce. We also think, that as new collectors "discover" Proof Sets as they begin to collect the new quarters and now the new nickel, that these sets will dwindle, and thus the prices will rise. Look at the low mintages on many sets before 1960 and you will see what we mean.

The flat part of the die that strikes the flat surface of the coin is then polished to remove the sandblast marks.

The parts of the die not polished will "roughen" the coin or give it a "frosted" appearance. The die is pressed against the coin blank twice under extra pressure and this gives the coin much more detail than on normal stikes.

Since the striking eventually smoothes out the rough area of the die, the process must be repeated after so many coins.
