The 1979 Proof Sets Include Six Gem Proof Coins - Cent Through Dollar.
All of our 1979 Proof Sets come housed in their original mint packaging. 3,677,175 of these proof sets were issued by the San Francisco Mint.
Proof coins are coins that are struck just for collectors. The U.S. Mint uses specially prepared planchets (blanks) and dies. The coins are struck twice to give them optimum detail.
