The 1959 Mint Proof Set comes with five coins:
- Lincoln Cent
- Jefferson Nickel
- Roosevelt Dime
- Washington Quarter
- Franklin Half Dollar
The Mint set comes from the Philadelphia Mint, where Proof Sets were originally minted by the US Mint. It wasn’t until 1968 that we saw the first San Francisco Proof Sets. That means on this 1959 set, you won’t see a mint mark.
Finding early Proof sets is increasingly becoming difficult, especially at an affordable price. This 1959 set is a great opportunity to pick up one of these early sets without breaking the bank.
At the time of this posting, there were three of these sets available for purchase. You can get more details and order here.
