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.

I am a brazilian and had the chance to deal with Nevada Coin. I was there to sell some gold coins and they paid me the best price I could fetch in Las Vegas. They are professional, courteous and trustworthy. Before visiting their premises I got a tentative appraisal by phone which I found reasonable. In the shop the attendant offered to approach the manager to get me a (gasp) BETTER price. Do yourself a favor and don’t bother talking to their rude and unprofessional competitors. They will treat you like a moron and quote prices accordingly. For Nevada Coin, five Stars all the way.


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.

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!


What friendly staff. They help you sell your items even if they don’t have a use for it by calling other shops around the area to see if they could use it… They want you to have the best out come from selling your items. I was so happy I decided to go to them!


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.

What inspired me to go to NV Coin and Jewelry was I was an ad on the TV for the shop. I was not too sure about going to NV Coin and Jewelry to sell my jewelry because I have been to many other pawn shops but haven’t found a good deal for my jewelry. After I went to Nevada Coin and Jewelry it was a big relief for me selling my jewelry for a good price.


Nevada Coin and Jewelry – has excellent customer service – providing las Vegas with top notch service and expertise – this is my primary coin dealers — others just can’t keep up – they are helpful and friendly – in my opinion they are the best in the south west area — so that’s my review a++++ rating – because I am a good customer – this is the best place to buy and sell gold and silver bullion.

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!


While vacationing in Las Vegas I did what a lot of people do I’m sure or at least that’s what I’m telling my wife ..I blew through the money I brought a little quicker than expected and I ended up having to shop my Rolex around to several dealers to save the trip. So I looked online for places, most offers over the phone were low and that’s if they would even quote me in the first place. I spoke to a guy at Nevada Coin and Jewelry who gave me a fair ball park price and a reasonable explanation as to why his number couldn’t be solid. Went down expecting to get the lower number and in fact Robert their Rolex expert said my Rolex was a better model then I had described. He paid me a higher number than he quoted. Thanks for saving my vacation guys.

Outstanding experience! This is the best place to change your gold with a great attention. I’m completely impressive because they have a smooth and fast service, definitely nice people!

They took the time to help me sell my item and find an item. The staff does not rush you or pressure you into buying something. They take you on a little adventure by telling you about the items you are selling and looking at…
