  • Description:

    The US Proof Set of 2006, featuring five quarters, is a remarkable collection that encapsulates the rich history and numismatic legacy of the United States. Since its inception, the United States Mint has been producing proof coinage to showcase the nation's artistic talent and commemorate significant events and themes.

    Designed by a team of talented engravers at the United States Mint, each quarter in the 2006 Proof Set features a unique reverse design representing a different state: Nevada, Nebraska, Colorado, North Dakota, and South Dakota. These designs pay homage to the diverse culture, history, and landmarks of each state, offering collectors a captivating journey through the American landscape.

    The obverse of each quarter in the 2006 Proof Set bears the iconic portrait of George Washington, originally sculpted by John Flanagan. This timeless design has graced US quarters for decades, symbolizing the nation's founding father and serving as a symbol of American identity.

    Unlike circulation coins, the quarters in the 2006 Proof Set are struck using specially polished dies and planchets, resulting in coins with exceptionally sharp details and mirror-like fields. These coins are minted with a brilliant proof finish, enhancing their visual appeal and making them prized possessions among collectors.

    The 2006 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 2006 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 alike.

    Each quarter in the 2006 Proof Set is denominated as a quarter dollar, representing one-quarter of a US dollar. Quarters have played a significant role in American commerce and culture since their introduction in the late 18th century, and they continue to be a staple of US coinage.

    Condition is a crucial factor for collectors when evaluating the value and appeal of proof coins. The quarters in the 2006 Proof Set are carefully handled and stored to preserve their pristine condition, ensuring that collectors receive coins of the highest quality.

    In conclusion, the US Proof Set of 2006 offers collectors a unique opportunity to own a piece of American history and heritage. With its stunning designs, limited mintage, and exceptional quality, this set is a must-have for any numismatic enthusiast or collector of US coinage.
