Coin Proof Set

The United States coin proof set has been produced since 1936, and with just a few years off, it has been a mainstay for coin collectors young and old for generations. The United States coin proof set has evolved over the decades from a five coin proof set in a brown manila folder, where the coins in the coin proof set were packaged in a flimsy plastic sheet like holder, to recent releases containing three durable and beautifully crafted, hard plastic containers carrying up to 14 pieces as part of one entire coin proof set. Proof coins have been made for over a hundred years in the United States as a way to show off coins of the U.S. mints and the beauty in design and elegance of form these coins possess.

Naturally, coin collectors feverishly went after these proof coins and earlier examples can carry a very significant premium. Once the United States coin proof set was first released, coin collecting was reaching a peak as a hobby and collectors swooned over these coin proof sets. Many nations around the world produce dizzying amounts of variations of the coin proof set. Even the United States has produced a coin proof set for many smaller and emerging nations to display the beauty of their coinage to the numismatic world. In fact, the coin proof set has become a cornerstone to any beginning coin collection and still has an appeal to the novice numismatist. However, with the downturn of all collectibles recently, across all hobbies within the collectible world, the coin proof set has fallen victim to devaluation and irrelevance. Major coin dealers for several years have been moving away from buying the coin proof set, and, as the market has taken a tumble for the worse, the future looks grim for the once sought after coin proof set.

The reassuring thing about the United States coin proof set is that the coins will never devalue less than their face value. And, as for the coin proof set produced with silver coins, they will never have a value less than what the silver content in those coins can provide. At Nevada Coin & Jewelery, we still buy any coin proof set, from the United States or anywhere else in the world. With our extensive network of wholesalers and distributors, we can still provide the highest cash offer for that coin proof set or sets you wish to sell. Just call or come in to any Nevada Coin & Jewelry location serving the Las Vegas valley and let us work with you in getting those collectible coins and coin proof sets off your hands and replacing them with cash today.

As a first timer in selling, I was a bit apprehensive. I did not know what to expect and was a little worried about a previous reviewers comments. Yes the office was stark and clinical. The staff however, more than made up for any downfall in the decor. Very helpful, polite and understanding to any ‘silly’ questions that were asked. All in all a pleasant experience, and one that should the opportunity arise I would go through again!

This past Saturday I had the opportunity to meet the owner and team at Nevada Coin and Jewelry. I didn’t know what to expect but they made me feel both comfortable and safe. I went through my collection of jewelry, both broken pieces and things I thought were of no value at all. They took the time to explain what each carat weight was worth and they helped me sort through my items. I was amazed at what they gave me for things I would never wear or use. I would recommend you stop in and speak to them, you might be as pleasantly surprised as I was.

Grateful for the Nevada Coin and Jewelry shop, I just adore it. I took some collectable figurines in and they bought them. I came out smelling like a rose. You should’ve been there to see the big smile on my face. I ran all the way home to look for some more. Can’t wait to get back! I can sure use the money!


Staff was friendly, knowledgeable, and responsive. Building had great security to helped me feel safe in handling my items.

I recently got divorced so I wanted to get rid of some of the jewelry my ex-husband got me. I found Nevada Coin and jewelry searching the web. When I called the guy that answered the phone was friendly and willing to quote me a price per gram. I went to their store on Flamingo, Avery whom I spoke to on the phone tested my items using some kind of x-ray machine. I could see that some of my jewelry was not the karat I thought (some lower some higher). He paid what he quoted on the phone no bait and switch. It took less than 15 minutes got my cash and got rid of some bad memories. I would recommend this company if you are looking to sell jewelry.

My friend and I came here to sell some coins and jewelry. We first saw Scott about some coins. He was very friendly and knew his stuff. Afterwards, he brought us over to Sheila who looked at our jewelry. She was also very nice and professional. We will definitely come back here again. GREAT PLACE!!!!

This place is definitely recommended!!! A.J. and David are amazing…very helpful and nice people at that! I would totally consider going to this place.

The staff are quick at work but not too quick to make you feel pressured into buying items or selling your items. They teach you about the items and tell you if they have use for your items or not. If they don’t have use for your items they call other places to see if they have a use for the items. Great staff!


After visiting a couple of the “traveling gold & silver merchants” who came to Mesquite, I made a call to Nevada Coin & Jewelry in Las Vegas… David was very helpful and professional. Their prices were the best I had seen… I left very satisfied with my trip and the deals we made. I will definitely go there again.

We were really pleased with the help that AJ gave us concering our gold coins and watches. I don’t think we could have received a better deal anywhere. All of the personnel at Nevada Coin & Jewelry were very professional. We will recommend them to our friends.

A.J. and Robert are so friendly and make it so you have the best deal with the items you bring them. They have so much knowledge about all the items they have in their shop and they like to teach others about what they know…
