Proof Set Coin Values

Proof set coin values can vary from year to year and from country to country. The proof sets made in the United States tend to carry the most value in the collectible coin world and, on some rare releases, the proof set coin values can be very high. For the most part, however, proof set coin values have been moving in a downward trend with the overall collectible coin market. Proof set coin values traditionally are higher than the face value of the coins themselves, especially when they are produced at the United States mints and made with United States coinage. The United States mints have made proof sets for other countries in the past including Nepal, the Philippines and the Dominican Republic. Some of these proof sets can have proof set coin values that are less than the face value of the coinage due to a general lack of interest in them by numismatists and the fact the coinage inside the proof sets have been outmoded by their host countries. Proof set coin values can be extremely high for some of the earlier United States coinage proof sets, beginning in 1936 and throughout the limited releases of the 1940’s and early 1950’s.

Proof set coin values took a sharp decline when the United States stopped putting silver into the lower denomination coins after 1964 and continued the down slide after 1970 when there ceased to be any silver at all in U.S. coinage. Proof set coin values can also vary widely based on error releases. The 1968 no S dime is a perfect example of when the proof set coin values far exceed the face value of the coins themselves as that particular set is worth several thousand dollars. Proof set coin values have begun to emerge higher in recent years as the United States mint has started releasing commemorative silver proof sets to reinvigorate a waning market. These proof sets have many more coins in them reflective of the state quarter releases and the many variations of new coins in circulation today.

I brought them some gold pendants, rings and a few other pieces. I knew they weren’t worth that much but I needed the cash. The guys (and there are a lot of them) were really nice and not the least bit condescending. They know when you come in to sell there is a reason but they don’t make you feel bad or inadequate. The store is filled with interesting objects for sale and for show. A very nice and very fair place to buy and sell. I highly recommend them.

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!


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.

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…

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.


My wife cashed in some coins and we got top dollar. We have sold to others before but no more, we found a real professional store in Nevada Coin & Jewelry. “Thank You”


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

Always a good experience here! Definitely the place in town I enjoy buying coins from, and I’d recommend them to anybody. Helpful staff, reasonable prices, and wide selection.

My Aunt recently passed and she lived in the outskirts of Las Vegas. While my sister and I went through her estate we found a number of items that neither of us considered keeping, but our aunt was clear in her will that she wanted us to use her things to make a profit and in turn use that money to help our futures. We shopped around, especially not being from the area, and got a lot of negative experiences just on the phone. People were rude, uninformative, and really just gave us a feeling they wanted to rip us off. It made us think of those dirty pawn shops you “hear about”. Finally I called Nevada Coin and Jewelry and the whole day shifted! We described a few pieces of jewelry and they helped us figure out initially a general value based on the metal. Of course, they did explain the importance of actually coming in and examining the pieces individually. That level of service over the phone got us through the door. When we went to the spot we were greeted with the same level courtesy, but the professionalism when going over each item and it’s value was through the roof! They took the time to explain why each item was worth what amount and even gave us a little bit of history on the styles. At the end of the day, my sister and I walked away with a sizable amount of money to put towards my son’s college fund and my sister’s vet school. Thanks, Nevada Coin and Jewelry!
