These coin collections came with cupro-nickel coins with proof strikes and often featured one or more special, commemorative releases. In the 1988 set, this included a commemorative silver dollar for the 1988 Seoul Olympics. Now, 1988 US Mint Prestige Proof Sets are available to you for purchase online from JM Bullion.
