  • Description:

    The US Proof Set of 2006, featuring five silver quarters, is a testament to the rich history and numismatic tradition of the United States. Since the introduction of proof coinage in the early 19th century, collectors have sought after these meticulously crafted coins for their exceptional quality and beauty.

    Part of the Statehood Quarter Program, the 2006 Proof Set includes quarters representing five different states: Nevada, Nebraska, Colorado, North Dakota, and South Dakota. Each quarter's reverse design commemorates the unique heritage, landmarks, and contributions of its respective state, offering a captivating journey through American history.

    The reverse designs of these quarters were created by talented engravers at the United States Mint, who meticulously sculpted each design to capture the essence of the featured states. The obverse of each quarter features the iconic portrait of George Washington, originally designed by John Flanagan.

    Unlike standard cupro-nickel compositions, the quarters in the 2006 Proof Set are struck in 90% silver, harkening back to a time when silver coinage was more prevalent in everyday commerce. This silver content gives the coins a distinct luster and appeal, making them prized possessions among collectors.

    The quarters in the 2006 Proof Set 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 collectability.

    The mintage of the 2006 Proof Set is limited, as is typical with proof coinage, further enhancing its desirability among collectors. Limited mintage figures contribute to the rarity and exclusivity of proof sets, making them highly sought after in the numismatic market.

    Each coin in the 2006 Proof Set is denominated as a quarter dollar, representing one-quarter of a US dollar. Quarters have long been an integral part of American coinage, serving as a symbol of national identity and pride.

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

    The 2006 Proof Set stands as a testament to the enduring legacy of American coinage, showcasing the artistry, craftsmanship, and history that define the nation's numismatic heritage. Whether acquired for their historical significance, aesthetic beauty, or investment potential, these silver quarters offer collectors a glimpse into the rich tapestry of American culture and heritage.
