US 2009 Silver Proof Set Available

2009 US Silver Proof SetThe United States Mint 2009 Silver Proof Set™ has launched, released by the Mint on Friday, July 17. The set contains collector versions of each circulating coin for 2009 at an issue price of $52.95.

Like the annual 2009 Proof Set released in June, each coin is struck in proof condition, which the Mint describes as "extraordinarily brilliant, with sharp relief and a mirror-like background."

Additionally, the bicentennial 2009 Lincoln pennies are composed of the same metal of the original issued 1909 penny -- 5% copper, 3% zinc and 2% tin.

The silver version is unique in that the dime, half-dollar, and six quarters are minted in 90 percent silver.

The 18 coins include:

  • four Presidential $1 Coins honoring William Henry Harrison, John Tyler, James K. Polk and Zachary Taylor;
  • a new Native American $1 Coin;
  • six commemorative quarter-dollar coins honoring the District of Columbia and the five U.S. territories (the Commonwealth of Puerto Rico, Guam, American Samoa, the United States Virgin Islands and the Commonwealth of the Northern Mariana Islands);
  • four new Lincoln Bicentennial One-Cent Coins struck in honor of the 200th anniversary of Abraham Lincoln's birth;
  • and the Jefferson 5-cent coin, Roosevelt dime and Kennedy half-dollar.

For more information on the coins included in the set, visit the World Mint Coins page 2009 US Coins. Another perspective of the coins may be read at CoinNews via 2009 Silver Proof Set.

The set may be ordered directly from the US Mint at http://www.usmint.gov, or by calling their sales line at 1-800-USA-MINT (872-6468).

Annual proof sets from the Mint are exceedingly popular with collectors. The 2009 silver sets exploded , with 271,237 sold within the first three days. As another example, more than 774,000 of the 14-coin 2008 Silver Proof Sets were sold by the Mint for $44.95. Current eBay prices have increased since the coins went off sale, as the samplings here show.
