Annual set includes 14 coins, seven of them struck in 90 percent silver

The United States Mint announced today that sales for the 2008 United States Mint Silver Proof Set will begin at noon (ET) on Tuesday, August 26, 2008. There is no household limit for this annual set.

This year's set, priced at $44.95, includes proof versions of the final five commemorative quarter-dollar coins to be issued in the United States Mint's 50 State Quarters® Program, the Kennedy half-dollar, and the Roosevelt dime, all struck in 90 percent silver. The set also includes proof versions of the Golden Dollar featuring Sacagawea, the Jefferson 5-cent coin (nickel), the Lincoln one-cent coin and four Presidential $1 Coins.

Each coin that the United States Mint Silver Proof Set comprises has a finely sculpted and frosted foreground against a mirror-like background, giving it a distinctive cameo appearance. Each coin bears the "S" mint mark of the United States Mint at San Francisco. The coins are sealed in three presentation cases and packaged in one box along with a Certificate of Authenticity.
