Washington — The United States Mint announced today that it will begin selling the 2003 United States Mint Silver Proof Set™ on July 28, 2003, at noon Eastern Time.
The 2003 United States Mint Silver Proof Set, available for $31.95, features versions of the five 2003–dated 50 State Quarters coins as well as the Roosevelt dime and Kennedy half– dollar, all minted in lustrous 90 percent silver, historically known as “coin silver.” The set also includes proof versions of the other 2003–dated circulating coins — the Lincoln cent, the Jefferson 5–cent piece and the Golden Dollar — for a total of ten coins in all.
Each of these beautiful silver proof coins has a distinctive cameo appearance created by the contrast of a finely detailed frosted foreground against a shimmering mirror–like background. Produced at the San Francisco Mint facility, the coins bear the “S” mint mark. The sealed cases containing the coins are inserted into a specially printed sleeve and are accompanied by a Certificate of Authenticity.
Because we expect demand for the 2003 United States Mint Silver Proof Sets to be high, customers are encouraged to place orders early. The United States Mint reserves the right to limit quantities and may discontinue accepting orders at any time.
