This set contains 14 2014-dated coins in proof quality, protectively encased in three clear plastic lenses and newly designed packaging. United States Mint proof coins feature sharp relief and a mirror-like background. Their frosted, sculpted foregrounds give them a special cameo effect. Proof blanks are specially treated, polished, and cleaned to ensure high quality strikes. The blanks are then fed into presses fitted with specially polished dies and struck at least twice to ensure sharp relief. The coins are then packaged in a protective lens to showcase and maintain their exceptional finish. The 2014 edition of the United States Mint Proof Set features: The fifth annual release of five quarters in the America the Beautiful Quarters® Program. The eighth annual release of four coins in the Presidential $1 Coin Program. One Native American $1 Coin, Kennedy half-dollar, Roosevelt dime, Jefferson nickel, and Lincoln penny. Each coin in the quarter series features a common obverse (heads) with the 1932 portrait of George Washington by John Flanagan, restored to bring out subtle details and the beauty of the original model.
