1962 Proof Set
Proof Set sales remained strong - and even increased slightly in 1962 - which was mostly due to speculative buying. The maximum order for 1962 Proof Sets was limited to 100 sets.
Each set contained five coins: One example each of the Lincoln Cent, Jefferson Nickel, Roosevelt Dime, Washington Quarter, and Benjamin Franklin Half Dollar.
About the sets: 1962 Proof Coins are found with Brilliant, Cameo and Deep Cameo surfaces. Deep Cameo Proofs are the most desirable Proofs. Since they are very scarce, these coins are highly sought out by collectors.
Mintage: 3,218,019 sets
Original packaging: Each coin was sealed in its own compartment between two sheets of flat pliofilm. An octagonal, foil seal imprinted with "US MINT PHILADELPHIA" was placed in a sixth compartment, and the flat pack was then inserted into a mailing envelope with a card."
