    The U.S. Mint has a long tradition of releasing a complete set of proof coins comprised of each denomination made in a year. Struck in sharp relief with a cameo effect that showcases frosted details raised against mirror-like backgrounds, these Proof sets have a long reputation as excellent starter sets for new collectors. The most prized on the collectors’ market are the silver Proof sets, which feature coins struck in 90% fine silver and whose overall elegance and beauty make for wonderful display items and gift sets. This is particularly true of the Premier Proof sets created in certain years, which featured the addition of display-ready original-mint packaging. One of the most limited editions was the 1997 US Mint Premier Silver Proof Set, now available to you from JM Bullion.

    Coin Highlights:

    • This Premier set comes in display-type original mint packaging!
    • Issued in 1997 by the U.S. Mint!
    • Comes from a limited mintage!
    • Includes a Kennedy half dollar, Washington quarter and Roosevelt dime struck in 90% silver.
    • Also includes a Jefferson nickel and Lincoln cent of standard composition.
    • Total silver content is just under 0.615 Troy oz (or just over 19 grams).
    • The face value of each coin is backed by the United States government.
    • The display case may show signs of wear, but the coins remain in good condition.

    The history of proof coinage at the U.S. Mint dates back to a fire at the Philadelphia Mint in 1817, an event that made it necessary to replace lost equipment with European technology. The innovations in the new equipment made proof coins possible, and employees of the Mint began to experiment, showcasing their skills on pieces that eventually became the basis for the tradition of publicly-released proof sets we see today: created with hand-selected planchets, polished dies, and multiple strikes.

    The 1997 US Mint Premier Silver Proof Set still comes in its distinctive original-mint packaging. Years on, that packaging can show signs of wear, but the coins within remain dazzling. 1997 saw one of the most restricted mintages of silver Proof sets for the era — just over 600,000 in total and even fewer Premier sets — so supplies are limited.

    Each set contains five coins: the Lincoln Cent and Jefferson Nickel in their standard composition, and the Roosevelt Dime, Washington Quarter, and Kennedy Half Dollar in 90% silver. Each coin’s obverse side features a bust of its President and an inscription of the year of issue. The reverse fields each feature unique designs that include their face value and the inscription “UNITED STATES OF AMERICA.”

    2. Holding period after cleared payment.

    3. Shipping method and transit time.

    What happens if my order is lost in transit?+

    All packages shipped by JM Bullion are covered by insurance subject to certain conditions. In the unlikely event that your order is Lost in Transit, you need to contact us immediately. Lost in Transit is defined for the USPS as tracking not having updated in 5 or more calendar days. For UPS, it is 3 calendar days. You must contact us within 7 days since last tracking for USPS and 3 days since last tracking for UPS. If you do not contact us by these timeframes, insurance will not cover the package.

    Once you contact us, we research the shipment with the carrier and begin the claim process. The claims process can take 30 or more days to resolve, and many Lost in Transit shipments end up getting delivered late. If the package is delivered, you must notify us within 24 hours.

    If my order includes an item on presale, will the in-stock items ship first?+

    Unfortunately, due to the way insurance is applied to an order, everything must ship at the same time (i.e., in-stock items must await shipment until all presale items have arrived). Your order will ship in its entirety within 24-72 hours of our receiving the presale item. An email notification will be sent when your order ships.

    Do you ship to US territories?+

    All orders will ship from our warehouse in Las Vegas, Nevada. We mask our return address on all packages as to not give away the contents of the package.
