The United States Mint will begin sales of the 2021 Silver Proof Set starting later today. Sales will begin on the Mint’s website at Noon Eastern, 9:00 AM Pacific and the set represents the second annual set of coins released by the Mint this year. The standard Proof Set was released last month.
For those who are in the Enrollment Program from the Silver Proof Set, check your email as you likely have already been notified that your set has been ordered automatically.
The 2021 Silver Proof Set has seen a substantial price increase over the 2020 set. This year, the 7-coin set will be $105.00, up from the $63.25 a year ago. The price increase is almost exclusively due to the astronomical rise of silver prices in the past year and increased costs in production.
For those not familiar with the Silver Proof Set, contains the same coins as the standard Proof Set. However, the Roosevelt Dime, Washington Quarters, and Kennedy Half Dollar are all composed of 99.9% silver. Here is the complete list of coins that will come in this set:
- 2021-S Lincoln Cent
- 2021-S Jefferson Nickel
- 2021-S Roosevelt Dime (99.9% silver)
- 2021-S Tuskegee Airmen America the Beautiful Quarter (99.9% silver)
- 2021-S Crossing the Delaware Reverse Washington Quarter (99.9% silver)
- 2021-S Kennedy Half Dollar (99.9% silver)
- 2021-S Native American Dollar
As is normally the case on each annual silver proof set, there is no production limit on the sets nor is there a purchase limit per household. The sets will remain available throughout the year so if you can’t pick it up now, you should be able to later in 2021.
