With this set of four Presidential dollars, the United States Mint started their Presidential Dollar Collection. Four coins issued every year to honour all those who had the honour of serving as President of the United States. The coins are Proof and come in a double sided display case. The first four dollars are for George Washington, John Adams, Thomas Jefferson and James Madison and were issued in 2007. We were only able to secure 60 collections, it seems they are difficult to get even in the States. All four Presidential dollars in Proof.
In 1976 the United States celebrated her bicentennial (200th anniversary) of freedom. Of course that freedom was from us, but that is another story. To celebrate this historic event they gave three of their coins a total make over, the Dollar, Half Dollar and Quarter Dollar. They issued these coins in cupro-nickel for circulation. In Proof cupro-nickel for collectors and a VIP 3 coin proof set in Silver. It is that silver proof set that we are now offering you. It has been quite some time since we were last able to offer this important one year proof set in Silver. Each of the three coins has two dates 1776 and 1976. The Dollar has Ike and the reverse has the Liberty Bell and the Earth. The Kennedy 50 Cents or half dollar has Independence Hall on the reverse. Finally the Washington 25c or quarter has a drummer boy from the War of Independence. This is a handsome one year Silver Proof Set and even the case is rather outstanding. We managed to get just under 90 of these special proof sets, when they are gone it may well be a couple more years until we are able to offer them again.
The United States celebrated the 100th Anniversary of the Statue of Liberty in 1986 with two coins, the Silver Dollar and the nickel Half Dollar. The Statue of Liberty, which sits in the New York Harbour, was a gift of the French people to commemorating the alliance of France and the United States during the American Revolution. You have two beautiful Proof coins that are now 32 years old. We are offering them for what the Dollar should sell for, so it is like you are getting the Half Dollars for free.
In 1964 the United States stopped striking her coins in 900 fine silver and in 1970 they stopped using any silver in the coins. This is a VIP 1992 Silver Proof Set. The Kennedy 50 Cent, Washington 25 Cent, and Roosevelt 10 Cent coins are struck in 900 fine Silver. The Proof Set also includes the Jefferson 5 Cent in cupro-nickel and the Lincoln Cent in copper-plated zinc. The five coins come in a double-sided plastic display case which then comes in a silver and black wallet with an information sheet. We think this set is important because three of the coins which are usually struck in cupronickel are struck only in this VIP set in Proof 900 fine Silver.
This set of five State quarters was issued in 2000, which of course was the Millennium. It has the quarters for Massachusetts (some wonderful coin dealers were born there), Maryland, South Carolina, New Hampshire, and Virginia. A quick note, the New Hampshire quarter shows the Old Man and the Mountain, which since then has literally fallen off the mountain… You get five Proof quarters in the Official United States Mint blue case of issue. It is a beautiful set. You can own the complete set of five in the Official holder for a very reasonable price.
We bought a large group of the United States State Quarters in Proof condition. Each set contains five different US quarters representing five different States. The only problem is that they were not packed carefully enough, so that some of the cases cracked or broke in shipping. The coins are nice proofs, it is just the plastic case that did not make it totally intact. We are offering sets, dates of our choice, but the more you order the more different dates we will try and give you. United States set of five different State quarters in Proof condition at much less than our normal price. But quantities are limited and the coins are nice, it is only the case that has problems.
The United States held the Summer Olympics in 1984 in Los Angeles, California. these were the first Olympic Games to be professionally run and the first to make a profit. The United States Mint issued two Proof Silver Dollars to raise money to pay for these games. The difference between the cost and the selling price went to the Olympic Committee. In 1983 they issued a Silver Dollar with a modern triple vision of the Discus Thrower and the head of an American Bald Eagle on the reverse. In 1984 they issued a Silver Dollar with the nude but headless sculptures at the entrance to the Los Angeles Memorial Coliseum. The reverse had the American Bald Eagle in full stance. Both are struck in 900 fine silver. Today the Royal Mint charges £80.00 each for a silver Proof Crown, so I think that our price of £69.50 for both American Silver Dollars is quite fair; remember our price includes the Government’s 20% VAT!
After the killing of President Kennedy, the United States Half Dollar was changed from Benjamin Franklin to John F. Kennedy. It has continued that way ever since. The American coins are really a gallery of past Presidents, the 1 Cent has Lincoln, 5 Cents Thomas Jefferson, 10 Cent Franklin Roosevelt, 25 Cents George Washington and 50 Cents John F. Kennedy. We offer the complete 1972 United States Proof Set in the plastic display case, as issued by the United States Mint. We sell the Half Dollar on its own £8.95, so we think this set is a of good buy.
This was issued as part of one of the most popular series of coins in the world, the United States Quarter set. Fifty quarters over 10 years, representing five States that joined the Union. The coins are in Proof condition in a double-sided display case, they are rather beautiful and interesting. Illinois with Lincoln, Alabama with Helen Keller, Maine with a lighthouse, Missouri with the arch and Arkansas wheat and a diamond. Washington is on the front of each coin with ‘In God We Trust’. This set is most interesting as most people don’t know a lot about the States represented.
