  • Description:

    The US Proof Set of 2005, featuring five quarters, is a testament to the rich tradition of numismatic excellence upheld by the United States Mint. Since its establishment in 1792, the Mint has been responsible for producing some of the world's most iconic and cherished coins.

    Designed by a team of talented artists and engravers, each quarter in the 2005 Proof Set showcases a unique reverse design representing a different state: California, Minnesota, Oregon, Kansas, and West Virginia. These designs serve as visual tributes to the rich history, culture, and natural beauty of each state, capturing the essence of the American experience.

    The obverse of each quarter features the iconic portrait of George Washington, the nation's first president. Originally sculpted by John Flanagan, this timeless design has graced US quarters since 1932, symbolizing the values of liberty, democracy, and leadership.

    Unlike circulation coins, the quarters in the 2005 Proof Set are struck using specially polished dies and planchets, resulting in coins with crisp details and mirror-like surfaces. These coins are minted with a brilliant proof finish, enhancing their visual appeal and making them prized possessions among collectors.

    The 2005 Proof Set quarters were struck at various United States Mint facilities, including Philadelphia, Denver, and San Francisco. Each coin bears the mintmark of its respective mint, adding to its historical significance and numismatic value.

    The mintage of the 2005 Proof Set quarters is limited, as is typical with proof coinage. Limited mintage figures contribute to the rarity and collectability of these coins, making them highly sought after by numismatists and collectors.

    Each quarter in the 2005 Proof Set is denominated as a quarter dollar, representing one-quarter of a US dollar. Quarters have played an integral role in American commerce and culture for centuries, and they continue to hold a special place in the hearts of collectors and enthusiasts.

    Condition is paramount when it comes to evaluating the value and desirability of proof coins. The quarters in the 2005 Proof Set are carefully handled and stored to preserve their pristine condition, ensuring that collectors receive coins of the highest quality.

    In summary, the US Proof Set of 2005 is a remarkable collection that celebrates the beauty and diversity of the United States. With its stunning designs, limited mintage, and exceptional quality, this set is a must-have for any serious collector of US coinage.
