WASHINGTON — The United States Mint today announced that the 2007 United States Mint Proof Set will be released Thursday, July 19, 2007, at 12:00 noon (ET) via its online catalog at www.usmint.gov, and by telephone at 1–800–USA–MINT (872–6468).
The 2007 United States Mint Proof Set now includes the new Presidential $1 Coins honoring the first four Presidents of the United States. Additionally, this set includes proof versions of all five 2007–dated commemorative quarter–dollar coins issued in the United States Mint’s 50 State Quarters Program, the Golden Dollar featuring Sacagawea, the Kennedy half–dollar, the Roosevelt dime, the Jefferson 5–cent coin and the Lincoln one–cent coin.
All 14 coins are contained in two boxes, a one–lens box with all four Presidential $1 Coins, and a two–lens box with the remaining 2007–dated coins (10 coins). Both boxes are inserted into a custom “sleeve” to complete the entire 2007 United States Mint Proof Set for $26.95.
Proof coins are manufactured by the United States Mint at San Francisco using specially prepared, highly polished dies, and bear the “S” mint mark. Each coin is struck at least twice to ensure the finest detail in a frosted cameo image on a bright, mirror–like background. The coins come in three sealed cases and are accompanied by a Certificate of Authenticity.
Some sets may include a label on the two–lens box to clearly identify the total number of coins contained inside (10 proof coins of a 14–coin set); other sets will have the clarification printed directly on the box. Both packaging versions are variations of the same official United States Mint product.
