This coin value guide will tell you how much your proof set issued by the U.S. Mint, made from 1936 through today, is worth. The table listed below provides average coin values based upon current market conditions. This guide assumes that all sets are in original U.S. Mint packaging, boxes and all original documents and Certificates of Authenticity (COA) are included. The sets should be free from damage and the coins must have never been circulated.

 

What Is a United States Proof Set?

The United States Mint began producing proof coins in the early 1800s. These were special coins manufactured with extra care that imparted a special finish on the surface of the coin and then sold them to coin collectors at The U.S. Mint offices in Philadelphia. Not every coin produced for circulation has a Proof counterpart. As time evolved coin collectors were requesting one proof coin of every type of coin being minted. In 1936 The U.S. Mint started assembling sets of every coin minted and selling them directly to collectors. Additionally, you could order these coins through the mail.

As time progressed, the mint also started making commemorative coins. Most of these coins were produced in business strike and proof finishes. A variety of sets that combined different denominations of commemorative coins or different finishes were made available to collectors.

Currently, you can order your proof coins directly from The United States Mint website.

Key Dates, Rarities, and Varieties

The following proof sets, in any condition, are worth considerable more than common proof sets. As such, these coins are frequently counterfeit or altered from common coins. Therefore, before you start celebrating your early retirement with your new found fortune, have the coins authenticated by a reputable coin dealer or third party grading service.

  • All proof sets dated 1936 - 1951
  • 1971-S No S Jefferson 5-cent  (the Jefferson nickel is missing the mintmark "S" on the obverse)
  • 1981-S Clear S  (all mintmarks on all coins have a very clear and flat mintmark)
  • 1990-S No S Lincoln cent (the Lincoln penny is missing the mintmark "S" on the obverse below the date)

Modern U.S. Proof Set Coin Values

The following table lists the buy price (what you can expect to pay to a dealer to purchase the coin) and sell value (what you can expect a dealer to pay you if you sell the coin). The first column lists the date and type and the last two columns list the buy price and the sell value for an average U.S. Proof Set. These are approximate retail prices and wholesale values. The actual offer you receive from a particular coin dealer will vary depending on the condition of the set and a number of other factors that determine its worth.
