Washington — The United States Mint today announced that the 2007 United States Mint 50 State Quarters Proof Set and the 2007 United States Mint 50 State Quarters Silver Proof Set both will be released January 23, 2007, at noon (ET).

The 2007 United States Mint 50 State Quarters Proof Set, which is priced at $13.95 this year, compared to $15.95 last year, features proof versions of the commemorative quarter–dollar coins from each state honored this year in the United States Mint’s 50 State Quarters Program — Montana, Washington, Idaho, Wyoming and Utah.

Proof coins are manufactured at the United States Mint at San Francisco using specially prepared, highly polished dies. Each coin is struck at least twice to ensure the finest detail in a frosted cameo image on a bright, mirror–like background. Each coin bears the “S” mint mark. The sealed case containing the coins is inserted into a specially printed box and is accompanied by a Certificate of Authenticity.

This year, the 2007 United States Mint 50 State Quarters Silver Proof Set is priced at $25.95 (last year’s price was $23.95) and includes all five new commemorative quarter–dollar coins in 90% silver and proof condition, that will be issued in 2007 as part of the United States Mint 50 State Quarters Program. Produced at the United States Mint at San Francisco, the coins bear the “S” mint mark. The sealed case containing the coins is inserted into a specially printed sleeve and accompanied by a Certificate of Authenticity.
