In 1992, the
mint began offering collectors a silver version of the proof
set housed in a black box where the dime, quarter and half dollar
were minted in the traditional 90% silver composition of earlier
years. These sets were also offered as Premier Silver Proof Sets
which were housed in a plush case inserted in a nice box (see
Beginning in 1999 with the introduction
of the Statehood Quarter Commemorative Coins, silver proof sets
were issued in two hard plastic cases and housed in a red box.
One case contained the cent through half dollar (and dollar after
1999) and the other case contained the five Statehood Commemorative
Quarters issued that year.
Beginning in 2007 with the introduction
of the Presidential Dollar Commemorative Coin Program, proof
sets were issued in three hard plastic cases (as above) with
that years four presidential dollars in the third case.
The 2009 proof sets contained an
extra panel to accommodate the four 2009 Lincoln Cent Varieties.
The mint did not offer the silver
statehood quarters as a separate set prior to 2004. You had to
buy the complete silver proof set to obtain the proof silver
statehood quarters issued from 1999 to 2003. Beginning in 2004,
the mint offered the silver statehood quarters as a seperate
five coin set.
