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.

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…


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.

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.


Been living in Vegas for many years and never had to sell or hock any of my items unfortunately as luck would have it that day did eventually find me and let me tell you is it a tough racket to find a decent place out here to do business with. Pawn shops are a joke and could care less about their customers and treated me like another number. Tried and tried and place after place the numbers where all over the place. Finally decided to go to these guys and I’m glad I did. They tested each piece of my jewelry right in from of me with some kind of xray machine. They explained how they calculated the price and paid me cash on the spot. Avery was very helpful and didn’t mind answering my questions and explaining what they do. I left feeling I got the best price for my items. I would recommend them to anyone looking to sell their jewelry.

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…

Great family run store. I’m well taken care of every time I show up at this location. Thank you Nick.

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.

Wonderful experience, Nick and Laura made it seamless and stress free. Thank you! They also sell super cool items!!

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.


A great selection of coins and other numismatic related material. Very professional.
