If any collectors missed a coin released so far in 2020 or were unable to purchase a specific one, a 2020 silver proof set is the way to go. The U.S. Mint says it will release the set at noon EST April 17.
Each set contains 10 proof coins bearing the “S” mintmark of the San Francisco mint, including quarters, a dime, a dollar and a half dollar that were all struck in 99.9 percent silver. There are five silver quarters from the America the Beautiful series including National Park of American Samoa, Weir Farm National Historic Site, Silver River Bay National Historical Park and Ecological Preserve, Marsh-Billings-Rockefeller National Historical Park and the Tallgrass Prairie National Preserve.
The dollar coin is the Native American dollar with lettered edge featuring Elizabeth Peratrovich on the reverse. The other four coins are a Kennedy half dollar with Reeded edge, a Roosevelt dime with Reeded edge, a Jefferson nickel with plain edge and a Lincoln cent with plain edge.
This year’s new premium coin is the Jefferson nickel as it has the “W” mintmark and a Reverse Proof finish. This coin is specially packaged in a clear plastic wrap and sealed in an envelope.
The cost for the 2020 silver proof set is $63.25, and each set comes with a Certificate of Authenticity. At the time of this writing, there were no mintage, household order or product limits.
