America The Beautiful National Park Quarters included in this Silver Reverse Proof Set are: Pictured Rocks National Lakeshore in Michigan, Apostle Islands National Lakeshore in Wisconsin, Voyageurs National Park in Minnesota, Cumberland Island Seashore in Georgia, and Block Island National Wildlife Refuge in Rhode Island.
The Native American Dollar issued for 2018 honors Jim Thorpe, a Native American Football Player and Olympian.
The Dime, Quarters, and Half Dollar are 90% Silver!
United States proof coins are extraordinarily brilliant, with sharp relief and a mirror-like background. Their frosted, sculpted foregrounds give them a special cameo effect. Proof blanks are specially treated, polished and cleaned to ensure high quality strikes. The blanks are then fed into presses fitted with hand-polished dies and struck at least twice to ensure sharp relief. The coins are then packaged in presentation cases to showcase and maintain their exceptional finish.
Please note: There are no Presidential Dollars in the 2018 Silver Proof Set. The Presidential Dollar Program was terminated as of 2016.
